TMZ is reporting that Deion Sanders’ wife, Pilar Sanders, learned about her divorce checking the internet.

After 12 years of marriage he could at the very least pick up the phone and call her.

Larry Friedman, Pilar’s lawyer, told TMZ that his client was, “heartbroken and surprised when [she] read…that Deion announced his decision, on his own, to end their marriage.”

He went on to add, “Pilar’s sole focus and top priority for the last 12.5 years has been her marriage and children. Based on recent discoveries, [Pilar] now realizes that Deion did not view their family the same way.”

No news on what the “recent discoveries” may have been. Pilar has not yet negotiated a divorce settlement with Deion, but intends to protect herself and children.

However it sounds like Ms. Sanders is holding out hope for a reconciliation saying Deion’s behavior can be explained by a, “temporary lapse of judgement” and insists that she’s, “confident that he will come to his senses and return to his family as he has in the past.”

As for Deion, a spokesman told TMZ the athlete’s original statement “speaks for itself” … adding, “In the best interest of the children, he will not be discussing this matter any further in the media.”
