Former NFL star Deion Sanders granted temporary custody of children in epic divorce battle with estranged wife
Football star Deion Sanders gets to stay in his sprawling Dallas-area mansion and his estranged wife must stay at least 500 feet away, a judge ruled on Monday.
Deion Sanders, 44, and Pilar Sanders, 38, were both charged with family assault in the April 23 domestic scuffle.
Pilar suffered minor injuries but was jailed for a night following the incident. Her arm was bandaged when she arrived for court each day.

State District Judge Ray Wheless also 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 counselling.
Wheless ruled that the injuries to Pilar Sanders, which she alleged her husband inflicted during an April 23 scuffle at their $5.7million home in Prospect, 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.
Following that altercation, Dion Sanders tweeted that she’d attacked him and he posted a photo of his children filling out police reports.
He later removed the photo.
