Deion Sanders' wife is suing him for a reported $200 million, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Pilar Sanders is seeking damages for an alleged assault, and damages for “libelous and slanderous comments posted online.” The attorney for Pilar says that the recent lawsuit is unrelated to the pair's ongoing divorce case.

The recent court filings by Pilar charge her husband and others, including Sanders’ daughter, with emotional and physical abuse, as well as public humiliation and mental distress. According to the Dallas Morning News, one filing by Pilar specifically focuses on tweets from Deion Sanders and his daughter. Sanders’ daughter reportedly tweeted that Pilar was "the number one gold digger of the year."
