Deion Sanders accused of 'mental, emotional and physical abandonment' in divorce documents

deion-sanders-pilar-getty.jpgAfter taking a few weeks off, the public break-up between Deion Sanders and his estranged wife Pilar has returned, and it's getting very ugly.

TMZ reports on Wednesday (Jan. 18) they've acquired court documents in which Pilar says the divorce should be granted on the grounds of "mental, emotional and physical abandonment." She is also requesting custody of the couple's three children and would like to see their prenuptial agreement thrown out, presumably in hopes of a more favorable settlement.

In the documents, Pilar says that, "[Deion] committed numerous acts of adultery...on numerous occasions throughout the marriage...[Deion] is a bully...[who] suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder [and] needs a full psychological evaluation."

But Deion quickly fired back through his attorney Jody Johnson.

Johnson tells TMZ, "The actions of Ms. Sanders and her attorney are nothing more than an attempt to avoid a legally binding contract [prenuptial agreement] that she no longer likes, by falsely assassinating the character of Mr. Sanders in an effort to extort additional money from Mr. Sanders."

Johnson adds, "Mr. Sanders will not be intimidated by these shady tactics and remains committed to resolve this matter in a court of law as quickly and amicably as possible."

The trouble started between the couple in mid-Dec. 2011 when Deion announced his plans for divorce on the Internet.

Our guess is this isn't the last you'll hear about this matter.
