Deion and Pilar Sanders are over and things between the former couple couldn’t be nastier. Now that the vicious custody battle is done, Pilar is left without custody of the estranged couple’s sons, and it was ruled that she would still have joint custody of their daughter. However, the judge also ruled that Deion would have the final say so in where their daughter lived. According to reports, Deion has decided to move his daughter in his home and it has left Pilar in a state of anger and shock. In the midst of Twitter beefing with his current girlfriend Tracey Edmonds, Pilar has made it clear that she plans to appeal the custody decision. However, Deion not only wants the kids but he also wants his last name back.

In a statement he sent to Atlanta blogger Sandra Rose, Deion says he wants Pilar to give up his last name if he’s as terrible as she claims he is.

Deion writes:

“A lot of the things she alleged I did is really what she did. I met Tracey well after I even filed for divorce. I hate for her to try and throw Tracey… Tracey is a wonderful woman and a very good person. She has a brand and her name is good. Tracey was never a mistress.

“A lot of people don’t realize I’m the one who filed for divorce. She knows why. She’s got to live with it… Everybody in the city knows why… A man just doesn’t wake up, all of a sudden, and say ‘I want a divorce’.

“I took care of business 14 years ago before we walked down the aisle [reference to the prenup]. The truth of the matter is, when you have to take care of business before you walk down the aisle, you know something will go down eventually. That’s the truth of the matter. And then when a person asks for $100,000 before you get married, you gotta know what time it is. But you stupid enough, young and dumb and do it anyway.

“But I have 3 wonderful children. The only thing left is the actual divorce itself. If I’m such a horrific and horrible guy, please relinquish my name. Release my name.”


  1. I’m tired of both of them. They aren’t hurting each other nearly as much as they are hurting those kids. Fools. Both of them.

  2. Smh. Pilar wasn’t so bad when he married her though. And Deion wasn’t so bad when she married him. They both need to stop and act like grown ups who have kids. They are going to screw those kids up with all of this nastiness.

  3. Really Deion? Drop your last name? Tell Tracey to drop hers, you know, the one she got from Babyface. Douche bag.

    1. Thank you! Hell, Tracey is hanging on to Babyface’s last name for dear life! Her whole career he helped pop off. If he’s going to call Pilar out, he needs to look at his boo too. They are in the same damn league.

  4. I feel sorry for the kids. Their parents hate each other so bad they aren’t being smart about this. They will both regret putting their kids through this.

  5. He is acting like a straight b-tch. He is being very petty taking his last name back wont make people forget they were even married. So what’s the point?

  6. Typical Deion sh-t. He’s a selfish a-shole. He won’t do what’s best for the kids because his ego is more important.

  7. He need to stop before he end of up Snapped and Tracy Edmonds need to have several seats. Always the first on a divorced man.

  8. SMh! I dont like him but he is right. If he was so horrible leave his name alone not like its helping heer career !
