Deion Sanders Is Having The Worst Week Ever (Updated)

Not the best week for Deion 'Prime Time' Sanders
Well, last week was pretty bad too, as he physically fought with his estranged wife in front of his kids and then tweeted a photo of his two boys filling out police reports. A picture speaks way more than 140 characters, and that tweet was one in a series of martyr-like messages, using the platform to release his "TRUTH".

Turns out a judge must weigh his version of the TRUTH against that of his estranged wife. This morning, Sanders is in court with Pilar for a hearing on the protective orders they both requested, Channel 8 reports.

And yes, this is the same Deion Sanders, legendary Dallas Cowboys star, who is the front man for the very sketchy Prime Prep Academy charter school, the subject of this week's Observer cover story.

The story details the missteps of the charter school he's been pumping as an inner-city savior in Dallas and Fort Worth. Sanders' image is inextricably linked to Prime Prep Academy, but it's his business partner who's pulling the strings behind the scenes with dicey leases and quid pro quo deals.

And while Sanders is promoting himself as the embodiment hope to inner-city kids (there's even a reality show in the works), police have reportedly referred a charge of criminal mischief against the NFL Hall of Famer to the Collin County District Attorney's Office.

These charges stem from the same incident last Monday, when Sanders tweeted about his physical fight with Pilar, for which police cited him for assault and arrested her. Pilar's friend, who was also there, told police she videotaped Sanders hitting Pilar with a statue and that Sanders then busted up her phone with a weight, destroying the evidence.

With that, Prosper police, once criticized of going soft on Sanders, are now throwing the book at him. Speaking of books, the charter school Sanders co-founded is scheduled to open this August.

Update: The Dallas Morning News has updated their story as the hearing progresses. It's dramatic; it's upsetting, and it's downright sad. During opening arguments, according to the updates, Pilar's attorney referenced Sanders' book, "Power, Money & Sex - How Success Almost Ruined My Life." He said the book needed a follow-up showing "how power, money -- the only important thing in life -- and sex -- what drives this man every day -- ruined his life." Another lawyer representing the children's best interest spoke about how their rocky and violent relationship affects the kids.

I hope that the judge rules in Pilar's favor. Those may call her a trophy wife, but HE chose her! She's been raising those kids since day one while this COCKY PUNK has been doing what he does best, loving himself! I praise a man like Micheal Jordan, who had DeionSanders money x10!! He gave his wife and kids the home, gave her a settlement and went on about his life! Deion on the other hand is so concerned about HIS HOUSE and his so called image. He tweeted a picture of his kids filling out a complaint against their mother!! If II was Pilar and I was awarded the home, I would tear it down and sell the land. I pray for her and her kids!

A) Doesn't Deion know that messing w/ a tranny like Pilar is bad for his long-term health??

B) Prime Time Academy has two strikes against it already: a shady money trail and bad publicity from those in the know.

While I agree that kids in urban areas need better schools away from the public systems, I'm not so sure i'd hand Deion and his poverty pimp cronies a license to educate children...

Their divorce judge needs to set aside some money in a trust fund for those kids, to be spent on the therapy they will need when the legal warfare finally ends.  Too bad that these "parents" are so selfish and narcisstic that they cannot see the incredible damage they are causing to their children by choosing to end their relationship in this manner.  Neither of them deserves custody of these children.

how many fathers in this fast paced world take the time to show their young boys how to fill out a police report. especially those of Mr. Sanders stature.

I have a feeling Deion's lawyer is going to be able to disprove Pilar's friend. In 15+ years in the NFL, millions of people(hell I could be called as a witness) know that Deion isn't a hitter. He's more likely to go for the knees or ankles.

Deion is part of the Its none of y-our business group at his house of worship. Deion is a man who should be prayed for in his hour of need.And I am sure a healthy dose of The Scriptures involving MIND YOUR /Our OWN BUSINESS would be in order . Where as you or I would not be allowed to show our faces again and be the subject of Gossip and shunning .

Although I do feel sorry for the children, I hope the narcissistic publicity-hungry money whores that pass themselves off as the "parents" in this situation both end up in prison.

You gotta listen to the TICKET to get it...just a quote of something Deon actually said covering the draft.

That's a direct quote from Deion's amazing draft "analysis" a few years ago.
