*Even if you don’t like sports, chances are you’ve heard of Pilar Sanders and her bitter divorce battle with former NFL and MLB player Deion Sanders.

The couple married in 1999 after meeting on LL Cool J’s show, “In The House”. Last year, Deion filed for divorce after 13 years, three kids and a reality show, but they continued to live together in their multi-million-dollar Texas mansion. In April, Pilar was arrested for assaulting him and ordered to stay away. The very next month, the judge ordered him to pay $10,500 a month in child support. Their entire debacle was fodder for headlines and Deion Sanders openly talked about it via his Twitter account and news networks.

Here’s an excerpt from the Q&A:

It seems that when you do a search online about Pilar Sanders, nothing but negative news items appear, what can and/or are you willing to do to make people see you in a positive light?

Negative, only now because  of the divorce and everything surrounding it. Most divorces aren’t happy occasions. Neither is mine. My divorce just happens to be with an ex pro baller (football and baseball) and is filled with abuse, lies, and part-time parenting. All I can do is be me. I’ve been honest, tried to be private and always been a good mother (putting my children first). Anything negative about me came from lies and or from those who don’t know me. But I can’t worry about that, all I can do is live my life the best way I can. I cannot worry about things that I can’t change or have no control over. Everyone is going to have an opinion whether it’s based on truth or lies, regardless, that’s life. My truth is my life whether it is accepted or not.
