Deion Sanders

Wins Child Custody

War with Pilar

0312_pillar_deion_sanders_getty_vh1_2It ain't the Super Bowl ... but it's pretty damn close -- Deion Sanders was just awarded primary custody of his three kids with his estranged wife.

We're told 11 of 12 jurors ruled in the NFL Hall of Famer's favor ... giving him full physical and legal custody of his 13 and 11-year-old sons with Pilar Sanders.

However, the Collins Co., TX jury gave the ex-couple shared physical and legal custody of their 9-year-old daughter.

Both sides were arguing for sole custody of all 3 children.

This settles the custody issues, but Deion and Pilar are still battling over finances in their divorce.

What an odd story. 11 out of 12 jurors? I always thought it had to be 12 out of 12. And why split custody of the daughter, but give sole custody of the boys? Sounds like a weird divide, to me. Yes, sons need their fathers, but they need mom's too. And, clearly, she isn't an unfit mother or else she wouldn't have joint custody with the daughter. Very odd, indeed.

It's so sad when a mother gets custody of her children taken away from her. Either she's such a Terrible mom or that judge is a heartless piece of shiiit who doesn't care how he affects a mothers life and her childrens

People are saying its odd because it is. Tmz, this isn't the full story. I read in another article that the couple decided for the boys to go with dad, and the daughter with Pilar...if she was unfit, they would award the daughter to her either.

You have to be a pretty miserable excuse for a mother to lose sole custody of two of your three kids in today's court system.

It's a toss up really. If you give the dad the kids it's really unfair for the mom. If you give the kids to the mom 9 out of 10 times in these high profile cases they try and bleed the man dry because they can just run to the judge hollering baby daddy and all.
