NFL legend Deion Sanders won a significant victory in the contentious child custody battle between the former Dallas Cowboy and his estranged wife Pilar Biggers.
After 2 weeks of scathing arguments on both sides, a 12-member jury in Dallas returned today with a verdict granting Sanders, 45, sole custody of his two boys, 11 and 13.
Sanders and Pilar, 43, will share custody of their 9-year-old daughter.
Sanders’ attorney argued that Pilar was more interested in modeling than raising the couple’s children. Pilar’s attorneys presented photos of guns and steroids in a bathroom of Sanders’ mansion.
Both sides were fighting for sole custody of the couple’s three children. In May Sanders was granted temporary custody of his children.
“I think the whole reason we’re here is not about kids, it’s about money. Let’s call it what it is,” said Sanders before the verdict was announced. “They refuted the pre-nuptual. We beat them in court regarding the children and we’re back. We’ll be back again [for] something else.”
Sanders has two grown children from his first marriage. He is currently dating Kenneth Babyface Edmonds’ ex-wife, Tracey.
