Deion Sanders is pleading with a Texas judge to lower child support payments to his ex-wife Pilar.
Sanders filed documents challenging the $10,000 per month child support orders established in early May. He claims that according to Texas law, he is paying six times more than what is required.
Pilar, however, is sticking to her guns claiming the former football standout is worth over $250 million. She even laid out the reasons for the high monthly payments in the original child support order, which includes:
— $2,000/month for the kids' specialized diet
— $900/month on school uniforms and athletic gear for their sports activities
— $500/ month on the children’s cell phone bill
She also added that she spends $450 on her son’s haircuts and treating her daughter’s “very thick curly hair.”
Pilar’s lawyers believe that Sanders is just trying to cheat the system.
“Once again, Mr. Sanders has not followed the Court's direct orders and has attempted to make up his own rules. It is clear that he still thinks he is "above the law,” Pilar’s attorney said.
A judge has not issued a formal rule on the matter.
