During Deion Sanders’ divorce proceedings with Pilar Sanders, the former NFL player was ordered to pay his now ex-wife’s legal fees (more than $275,000) but refused. So a judge put a lien on Deion’s $21 million house, a 29,000-square-foot mansion in Prosper, Dallas, to encourage Sanders to pay the fees.
It’s been a tough year for Sanders, on the homefront and in the classroom. The Dallas charter school that Sanders co-founded is closing. The Texas Education Agency revoked the charters of five operators in July, including Sanders’ Prime Prep Academy. That means the school will lose its state funding. The revocation is being appealed. Appeals against Texas Education Agency decisions are rarely effective.
