Pilar Sanders, the soon-to-be ex-wife of Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, has filed two separate suits against the former Dallas Cowboy and Atlanta Falcon totaling $200 million for assault and several libelous comments posted online within the two months after the football star filed for divorce in December, according to reports.

After the divorce was filed,  Pilar, filed court documents in January in Texas that states her husband is a bully who suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder, needs a full psychological evaluation. She added that her husband cheated on her multiple times, acts which are at the bottom of the depths of humanity and, as a result, should have Deion punished to protect everyone on the planet.

Pilar also claims emotional and physical abuse, mental distress, public humiliation and financial loss, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The assault suit against Deion alleges that he and Laura Jones, the woman accused of carrying out the attack, orchestrated an assault on Pilar in early February designed to physically force her out of their Prosper, Texas mansion.

The other suit describes a Twitter post from Deion referring to his wife's lies and foolishness regarding the alleged assault and another post from his daughter Deiondra, calling Pilar the number one gold digger of the year.

Pilar's attorney says the suits are unrelated to the couple's ongoing divorce case.
