Deion Sanders, Pilar Sanders Divorce: Child Support Ordered

Posted: Updated:

A judge has ordered football legend Deion Sanders to pay $10,550 in monthly child support to his estranged wife, Pilar, TMZ reported Tuesday.

Though Sanders doesn't have to pay spousal support, he will have to cough up $275,000 to cover his ex's legal fees, TMZ reports.

The child support order is just the latest chapter in the couple's contentious custody battle, which began with an April 23 domestic dispute at their Dallas-area mansion. After the altercation, both parties made allegations of assault. Pilar was arrested and held overnight in jail for misdemeanor family violence.

According to the Associated Press, the judge ruled Tuesday that neither party had committed domestic violence.

Sanders filed for divorce from Pilar in December, but the pair reportedly still shared their Dallas home until Pilar's arrest.
