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.

From what I have read the boys told the court they did not want to live with their mother and have been living with Deion. Can't remember for sure but I think their daughter was living with Pilar. Courts do consider the wishes of children that age if the believe it would be detrimental not to do so.

Three kids but different custody rulings. The hell?


Did the boys have a say? Maybe pick their "hip" father who gets to travel to all the games? (wink)

The tragic party of this story is that the kids are separated. Brothers are with dad, sister is with mom.

From other Entertainment news outlets I've read up on this custody battle and found that Pilar isn't nothing but a money hungry pretty BULLY. She's a slut whom brought other men into their house. She sucks major D and I have NO respect for women like she. LMAO

What happened to Deion? When he played ball he had chisled handsome features, now he looks like the Black Goblin! I wouldn't be surprised if he threw exploding pumpkins at his crazy ex wife. No wonder Wesley Snipes dumped her
