Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds

NFL legend Deion Sanders spoke with exclusively on Wednesday to clear the air on allegations that he abused his children and kept his ex-wife, Pilar Biggers-Sanders, from seeing them.

“Pilar hasn’t seen the children since August,” Sanders, 47, said via phone after leaving his lawyer’s office.

Sanders and his attorneys held a meeting to determine the best course of action to deal with Pilar’s latest violation of a court order.

Last week, Pilar took to her Twitter page to accuse Sanders of attempted murder, criminal activity, spousal and child abuse, and preventing her from picking up her children for a court-ordered visitation. She also uploaded audio to YouTube in which her son, Shedeur Sanders, can be heard accusing his father of whipping him.

But Sanders disputed the allegations, saying the audio she posted on YouTube was 3 years old and that it was edited by Pilar to make him look like a bad father. “That audio was played in court 3 years ago,” said Sanders, who added that Pilar, who is broke, told the judge she had no plans to work for a living.

The former Atlanta Falcons standout said police kicked in the door of Pilar’s residence when she refused to return the children to him after a visitation.

“My children are happy,” said Deion. He portrayed Pilar as a desperate women who hopes to derail his hit reality TV show on OWN Network, Deion’s Family Playbook, featuring his fiancée, producer Tracey Edmonds, and his extended family.

After my conversation with Mr. Sanders, his divorce attorney sent the following statement to

Dear Ms. Rose and Mr. Cartwright,

I represented Deion Sanders in his divorce from Pilar Sanders. I am aware of her latest tweet and wanted you to know our position.

“This is yet another sad attempt by a desperate woman and her actions are precisely why the court has awarded custody of the children to Deion Sanders. Deion’s kids remain happy and safe and given Pilar’s behavior he will take the appropriate legal action to address her continued violation of the custody order.”
