UPDATE: Though multiple sources were reporting that Deion Sanders had filed divorce papers with his wife of 11 years, Sanders has taken to Twitter to deny those claims.

Ladies and gentlemen I never address IGNORANCE but I must at this point. I've never filed 4 divorce and hadn't made a statement to ANY media

Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders has filed for divorce from his wife of 11 years, Pilar Sanders. According to one report, Sanders' decision was based on his wife's career as a reality television star, and her decision to pursue other entertainment ventures. Here's how he explained his reasons for filing for divorce:

"Enough is enough. I never signed up for all this. Enough is enough. If I wanted a model or a television star I would have married one a long time ago. All I wanted was a housewife."

If true, that would be an interesting reason to call off a long marriage — after all, Pilar was in music videos before she met Prime, and she was a big part of Deion's own reality show.

 

A website called "Hello Beautiful" reached out to Pilar for her reaction.

"It's unfortunate that my husband decided to take this course of action…I'm surprised and hurt… As I said to my children, we must take a minute breath and Trust God."

It seems as if there's room for just one TV star in that twosome. And it's the guy who's sprouted wings for DirectTV:

Is that backsass? Evidently, backsass is not on the marriage menu.
