Deion Sanders and his wife Pilar Sanders have confirmed they are getting a divorce after 12 years of marriage.
In September news broke that Deion and Pilar called it quits, but while Deion admitted that he and Pilar did discuss the possibility they denied ever going through with the split.
Two months later, and a day after Kobe Bryant’s divorce announcement, the NFL hall of famer confirmed the marriage is over.
In a statement to TMZ, Deion stated,
“Pilar and I have decided to end our marriage and move on to the next phase of our individual lives with mutual respect. We are friends and our top priority has and will continue to be the well-being of our children.”
“We arrived at this decision prayerfully and carefully in order to be able to pursue what is in both of our best personal interests.”
With another 13 days left before in 2012, it’s no telling how many more celebrity divorces will pop up! Are you surprised by Deion and Pilar Sanders divorce news?
