Deion Sanders

My Child Support Payments


9/23/2012 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921_deion_sanders_pilar_01Deion Sanders is furious that a judge ordered him to pay up over $10,000/month in child support to his estranged wife Pilar ... claiming it's simply not fair.

Sanders just filed docs in Texas Supreme Court challenging the support order that was established in a lower court back in May.

In his docs, Sanders says $10k/month is actually SIX TIMES more than Texas law requires ... and he wants his child support obligation significantly reduced.

But Pilar claims Deion is worth roughly $250 MILLION ... and the TX Supreme Court shouldn't have any sympathy for Prime Time ... or change the support structure that's already in place.

In fact, Pilar has filed her own legal docs outlining why she needs so much cash from Deion. Among the highlights: 
-- $2,000/month for a special diet for the kids
-- $900/month on uniforms and shoes for the kids' sports activities
-- $500/ month on the children's cell phones

Pilar also claims she spends $450 on haircuts for her sons and treatments for her daughter's "very thick curly hair."

Style doesn't come cheap.

Pilar's lawyer tells TMZ, "Once again, Mr. Sanders has not followed the Court's direct orders and has attempted to make up his own rules. It is clear that he still thinks he is "above the law."

The court has yet to rule on Deion's request. Stay tuned ...

He's a douchebag. he's worth a quarter of a billion and he wants to pay the same as a guy working minimum wage? Why should his kids suffer while he sits around drinking Dom and doing strippers? Ick! his baby momma is working 24/7.. he needs to be paying for half her time since obviously he doesn't do sht

what a money grubbing skank. $900 a month for school uniforms? im pretty sure you buy a whole weeks worth of uniforms at kohls once for the entire year and probably spend less $100. If there is a school that makes you get uniforms monthly id love to see it 500 for cell phones? my whole familys cell phone bills dont total that.

I guess Deion could cut one suit out of his wardrobe and he might could afford to pay what he owes in child support.

I'd want an independent auditor making sure every single dime went to the kids. If she can't prove that she's not taking even a penny for herself beyond her expenses, she shouldn't get the money.
And $900 a month for uniforms and shoes? You need one or two uniforms a year. You need one or two pairs of shoes a year. Getting them cleaned should only cost a few bucks.
She's spending that money on herself.

She does not deserve that kind of money or lifestyle and the kids dont need to grow up with HER attitude and HIS money. That being said, he was ordered to pay it and its time for him to man up.

1. No man has ever said, "Great! I get to pay child support!" or "Hey, this child support agreement ain't half bad." It doesn't matter how much they make.

2. Even though it is stupid rational, there are a million ways to spin why she needs it and how she spends it. Even buying a car (she has to transport them), Mortgage payments (the kids need somewhere to live), Utilities (the kids need them obviously), The best private school (Education is important), A nanny (someone she trusts to care for them while she "works"), a stylist (so they can stay Deion fresh), etc... All of that counts as going towards the kids and their lifestyle. SMH!

She doesn't pay housing. He was required to purchase a house for her. She may have to pay utilities but no mortgage, so no, she does not require anywhere near $10K per month to raiser her children. I woder, does she use any of HER own money to care for them? She's able-bodied & has joint custody so she has plenty of time to get a job!
