Pilar Sanders’ (pictured), the estranged wife of former gridiron great Deion, efforts to try to make ends meet are reportedly not cutting it. The fashionable ex-reality star has allegedly had her lights and gas turned off due to non-payment so she was forced to move out of her home, according to RumorFix.
Reportedly, Deion makes $161,565.25 a month and is worth about $250 million. Pilar was awarded $10,500 a month in child support, but her hubby’s lawyers contend that the amount is rather extreme and six times what the norm is for where they live in Texas. The legal eagles also claim that paying utilities is not a child support expense.
Since Deion and Pilar are locking horns over the monetary child support amount, not a dime has been doled out since April.
Before this latest battle, the actress and former model claimed that the monthly expenses for her list of dire “must-haves” came to $24,600 for necessities for the children, such as organic meals, cell phones, and special hair care products for their daughter.
Kali Bowyer, Pilar’s publicist who spoke to RumorFix, contends:
This is a horrific situation that Mr. Sanders has placed Pilar and the children in by completely disregarding his not only court ordered obligations, but as well as his obligations as a Father to provide support.
It clearly comes as a great shock to see that one of America’s beloved athletes would turn his back on a hungry child, especially his own. While Pilar has pleaded for the courts to take a stand and enforce the existing support order, she has yet to see any relief in the matter.
The Sanders have been embroiled in a nasty, knock-down, drag-out divorce that has been going on for what seems like an eternity. There have been episodes of horrific mud-slinging, restraining orders, lawsuits, house bans, Twitter wars, accusations of infidelity on both parts, and physical assaults that resulted in Pilar’s arrest for allegedly attacking Deion.
Meanwhile, Deion tweeted RumorFix, stating that their three children stay with him half the week. He also alleges that Pilar’s story is one big fabrication stating, “A lie don’t care who tells it.”
