Curious the things that land in the in-box. Like this, for instance: a statement from attorney Larry Friedman
on behalf of Pilar Sanders, who, for now at least, is married to Deion Sanders. I say "for now" because not one hour ago TMZ noted that the former Dallas Cowboy has filed for divorce
, insisting in court docs that "the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict." To which Pilar responds: Say what
now? Let's go to the statement for an excerpt:
"Pilar was heartbroken and surprised when she read on the Internet that Deion announced his decision, on his own, to end their marriage. She was shocked when she learned that Deion filed for divorce without telling her he was doing so. Her sole focus and top priority for the last 12 1/2 years has been her marriage and children ... She has been faithful and devoted to Deion 'for better or for worse' and had wholly supported ALL of Deion's dreams and career choices regardless of how demanding they've been throughout the course of their marriage!"
The whole thing follows. Something about not having "negotiated a settlement" and divvying up "the parties' marital property." And the kids: They have three.
