A Texas judge has granted Deion Sanders temporary custody of his children and ordered estranged wife Pilar Sanders to stay at least 500 yards away from the former NFL star’s suburban Dallas home in a ruling stemming from a scuffle between the pair last month.
According to ESPN:
The judge gave the Hall of Famer temporary custody of the former couple’s children pending a full custody hearing, and ordered that the children undergo psychological counseling.
State District Judge Ray Wheless ruled that the injuries to Pilar, which she claimed Deion inflicted during an April 23 scuffle at their Dallas-area mansion, were a result of Deion defending himself from her assault.
A message posted on Deion’s Twitter account late Monday read: “GOD IS SO GOOD! DON’T EVER DOUBT HIM NO MATTER HOW YOUR SITUATION LOOKS. TRUST HIM PLEASE. HE IS SO FAITHFUL.”
