Deion Sanders' wife learns of divorce plans on Internet

deion-sanders-pilar-getty.jpgThe Internet is good for a lot of things - learning about about the world in which we live, catching up with old friends on Facebook or just wasting time on YouTube watching cats play piano. But one thing it's probably not good for, finding out your husband is divorcing you.

Well, that's exactly what happened to Pilar Sanders, soon to be ex-wife of NFL great Deion Sanders. TMZ reports that Pilar found out about her husband's intention to split from the gossip site.

Her attorney Larry Friedman, tells TMZ she was "heartbroken and surprised when [she] read...that Deion announced his decision, on his own, to end their marriage...Pilar's sole focus and top priority for the last 12.5 years has been her marriage and children. Based on recent discoveries, [Pilar] now realizes that Deion did not view their family the same way."

Friedman chose not to explain what these "recent discoveries" were.

With all this having been said, Pilar Sanders is holding out hope that the Hall of Famer will change his mind and that "he will come to his senses and return to his family as he has in the past."

Deion recently announced he plans to buy Pilar a $10 million house as part of a divorce settlement.
