Deion Sanders Claims Child Support Payments Are Too HighPublished by on Monday, September 24, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Deion Sanders has a gripe with the judge who’s ordered him to pay over $10,000 per month in child support to his estranged wife Pilar. He feels the decision isn’t fair.
In Texas Supreme Court, Sanders filed papers which challenged the support order that was established in a lower court back in May. In the documents, Sanders claims that $10,000 per month is six times more than what Texas law requires. As a result, he wants his child support obligation significantly reduced.
But Pilar, who claims Deion is worth about $250 million, doesn’t believe the Texas Supreme Court should take pity on him. In response, she filed her own legal papers which outline why she needs such a hefty amount of cash. Some of the needs include: $2,000 per month for a special diet for the kids; $900 per month on uniforms and shoes for the kids’ sports activities; and $500 per month on cell phones for the children.
This doesn’t include the $450 she says she spends on haircuts for her sons and treatments for her daughter’s “very thick curly hair.”
