I have to say I wasn’t shocked to find out that Deion Sanders and his wife Pilar are divorcing after 11 years of marriage. Most athlete marriages end in divorce and while the union appeared to be solid that’s not surprising. What was shocking, the fact that it’s Deion who filed for divorce.

A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced that Deion was cheating on Pilar with a 19-year old woman he met via Twitter. NFL player Adam “Pacman” Jones was his wing man.

Deion’s alleged reason for filing divorce:

“Enough is enough. I never signed up for all this. Enough is enough. If I wanted a model or a television star I would have married one a long time ago. All I wanted was a housewife.”

The confusing thing about that statement, Pilar IS an ex model/video vixen. Maybe he forgot

Then there’s the equally confusing fact that he and Pilar had a reality show, Prime Time Love

I guess he’s ignoring his contribution. This was Deion’s second marriage. Pilar released a statement to Hello Beautiful

It’s unfortunate that my husband decided to take this course of action…I’m surprised and hurt… As I said to my children, we must take a minute breath and Trust God.”

I guess we’re about to see single retired Deion in action.
