Pilar Sanders is riding high right now. The ex-wife of NFL great Deion Sanders tells Bossip, “Never stop fighting for what you believe to be true…Don’t give up on what’s right and what’s true.”

Those are sobering words from the 43-year-old after a judge reversed a $2.2 million defamation judgment against her.

In 2015 Deion alleged that Pilar made statements on television and social media that the former Dallas Cowboys cornerback had abused her, their kids and threatened to murder her. Because he failed to provide proof of such accusations, a Texas Circuit Court judge dismissed the case.

Deion and Pilar were married for 15 years and have three children, Shilo, Shelomi and Shedeur.
