Pilar Sanders loses custody battle to Deion Sanders
After a lengthy court battle with her estranged husband, Deion Sanders, Pilar Sanders has lost custody of her children. A Texas jury ruled Tuesday in favor of Deion Sanders who will get primary custody of his three children with his ex. The couple will share custody of their only daughter, while the two sons will go to their father.
After the verdict was read, an obviously upset Pilar told reporters that she believed the decision was biased.
“So many pieces of evidence, solid facts, were not able to be admitted as evidence,” she said. “Now if that’s not prejudice… if that’s not one-sided… you have to be blind, dumb, crazy and stupid.” She later added the message below on Twitter.

Deion, who was previously granted temporary custody of the children in May, was much more upbeat in his message to the media.
“In any war there will be casualties, but I didn’t want my children to be casualties,” he told reporters. “I’m just happy this part is over. I moved on privately a long time ago.”
Pilar is currently being showered with words of encouragement from her supporters on Twitter like the person below.
@pilarsanders – saying a prayer for you. Keep your head held high. You’re a great mother.
