Personal Life

Sanders met her future husband, Deion Sanders, in the mid-1990s when she was involved in acting. They began dating and then married in May of 1999. They had their first son together, Shilo, in 2001. They had a second son, Sheduer, in 2003 followed by a daughter in 2004 named Shelomi.

In 2013, the couple were granted a divorce after 12 years of marriage. Deion had originally filed for divorce in 2011, citing infidelity. However, he did not inform Pilar that he was doing so and she famously found out from TMZ, the news outlet primarily reporting on celebrity news. After the divorce, the couple were embroiled in a dramatic custody battle, with Deion ultimately winning full custody rights and Pilar granted visitation. However, the battle continued over the years with Pilar later being granted custody of some of the children. The former couple were involved in other legal troubles as well, as Pilar had alleged domestic violence had occurred during the course of their marriage. Deion denied these claims and subsequently sued Pilar for defamation. What made the situation between the two all the more dramatic was the fact that both often posted updates on various social media platforms, making the dispute very public.

After splitting with Deion, she began dating James Prince, the CEO of Rap-a-Lot Records. She announced her relationship officially in 2019. In the years leading up to this announcement, she was also romantically connected to Odell Beckham Jr.
