A Texas judge has granted former NFL great Deion Sanders temporary custody of his 3 youngest children -- 2 boys and a girl -- by estranged wife Pilar Sanders.
The judge also ordered psychological counseling for the 3 children, and he upheld a previous order for Pilar Sanders to stay 500 yards away from the mansion she once shared with Sanders.
Pilar showed up to court with her right arm in a sling. Her right wrist was immobilized in a black plastic cast.
Witnesses told the judge Pilar's injuries were the result of Sanders defending himself from her and her friend, who attacked him outside his bedroom. Pilar and Sanders were separated but lived in opposite ends of the $5.7 million mansion in suburban Prospect, Texas.
Both Pilar and Deion appear to have lost weight since the fracas on April 23rd.
From the NY Daily News:
The judge ruled that the injuries to Pilar Sanders, which she alleged her husband inflicted during an April 23 scuffle at their $5.7 million home in Prosper, were a result of Deion Sanders defending himself from her assault. Wheless said that since Deion Sanders experienced no pain, it was only simple assault, which is punishable by a fine.
Hearings in the Sanders' divorce case started last week at the Collin County Courthouse in McKinney, 30 miles north of Dallas.
