Pilar Sanders Opens Up about Abuse and Arrest

Pilar Sanders Opens Up About Abuse and Arrest

The road to divorce has been rocky for Deion and Pilar Sanders, and has yet to let up for either party. Just last month, Pilar was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence against her husband while attempting to visit their children.

In a three-part interview with Basketball Wives L.A. alum, Tonya Young Williams, Pilar Sanders opens up about the abuse she experienced with Primetime, the infidelity allegations, and gives her side of the April 23rd ordeal.

Check out a few highlights of the conversation below.

On the physical and verbal abuse during their show “Primetime Love”:

“During the shooting of it, I have a very light personality, with that, there were a lot of parts that were just naturally funny and it just kinda happened. So he called shooting down and he called a meeting with myself and two producers from Los Angeles and we went to our back room where the sitting area is – he said “there has to be a good cop and a bad cop and there is only one comedian here and the comedian is me.” I just started laughing and said, “Oh my God you are ridiculous” and I say, “I can’t help it if I’m funnier than you”. Then he leaped across the table and grabbed my neck and squeezed it to the point that I thought that he poked a hole in my trachea. The two producers didn’t know what to do. They couldn’t get him off of me. They couldn’t do anything so I started kicking him in his groin. That’s the only thing that got him off of me … There were other times when he grabbed me and ripped jewelry … When he was verbally abusive, I didn’t recognize it as abuse. I took his nasty behavior as his personality, I just thought he was a really mean jerk. He was just rude to people because he’s rude to a lot more people than me.”

On the April 23rd ordeal:

“After Deion closed the door so I couldn’t see or talk to my son, he then opened it and jumped towards me in a taunting, frightening manner. I said, ‘what are you going to do?’ And he closes the door and I see him pushing (my son) into the closet area and closes that door. I cant see my son anymore and then he shuts the door on me. I call him a bitch. Then the door opens and he charges me like he’s running out of a tunnel on the football field – straight to my throat – completely off guard – drives and slams me into the glass double door by my neck. I’m kicking and scratching any where that I can get him off of my throat. I put my hand under his fingertips and I’m able to wiggle out of his choke. He picks me back up by my neck and throws me around … I’m screaming at the top of my lungs and now he’s rushing me into the bedroom – off of my feet – solely by my neck. He pulled me around the sitting area, I can’t breathe anymore … I grab the elbow of the statue with one arm and try to grab the double doors while he still has me. It’s very heavy, and I’m tipping it. With whatever bit of breathe and strength I have, I’m giving it all I got because I don’t have many more ‘gots’ left. He grabs the statue. I look at him like ‘you gotta be kidding me’ and I just cover my head and close my eyes and boom, boom, boom. He’s just hitting me with the statue and with his hands. He wasn’t doing a Superfly Snuka (the famous wrestler) over my head with the statue, he was just tipping, tipping it on my head … He lies and says he didn’t hit me or choke me and this is why I’m sitting here with a broken arm and a smashed thumb with a pin in it.”

Tomi Lahren On Cardi B's 'Dog-Walking' Threat: 'I Would Never Get Away With That'

Tomi Lahren paid a visit to Fox & Friends, where she discussed her Twitter feud with Cardi B. Last week after the "I Like It" rapper posted a video discussing the partial government shutdown, the right-wing pundit took to Twitter to write out her views on Cardi's comments.

"Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020," she wrote, which prompted Cardi to write that she will "dog walk" her.

“I just like to point out the left’s hypocrisy because can you imagine if I would threaten to dog walk Cardi B — or anyone else for that matter — as a conservative, as a Trump supporter?” Lahren said during her appearance on the show. “I would never get away with that but they’re able to do it, and the left applauds it... you can see that there are leftists with verified accounts who are not only laughing at the fact of me being ‘dog walked’ — they’re tweeting out memes showing me in a leash and a collar with Cardi B walking me. Beyond that, they are actually saying, ‘Yeah, she would hurt you, she would beat you up — I wish we could start a GoFundMe page so we can watch your teeth get knocked out.’"

She also criticized U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't underestimate people from The Bronx (where she and Cardi hail from).

“Well, I’m not surprised at anything Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, but again, I’m also impressed the way the left does the mental gymnastics to justify it,” she said. “...these are elected representatives who are endorsing and saying the same thing. So, you know, it’s really puzzling and troubling.”

Friendly reminder: after over a month, the government is still shut down.

Cardi B Will Reportedly Have Her Own Las Vegas Residency

Cardi B is reportedly getting her first Las Vegas residency. According to The Associated Press, the “Money” rapper will have a residency at the Palms Casino Resort in anticipation of the debut of its newest complex, KAOS.

“Above and Beyond, G-EAZY, Kaskade and Skrillex are among the other artists who will have exclusive residencies at the complex,” the report reads. KAOS will reportedly open in April. “KAOS is part of the Palms’ $690 million renovation that features state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance performances including a rotating 360-degree DJ booth.”

This news comes just a week after the announcement of Drake’s reported residency at the XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas. The musical reportedly “inked a 12-show deal over the next two years."

Cardi B has shown no signs of slowing down. She is currently nominated for five Grammy awards, and she is set to perform at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. She also made headlines recently for her thoughts about the current partial government shutdown, clapping back at detractors like Tomi Lahren.

"You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much," she wrote on Twitter with a statement aimed at the political pundit.

Illinois Man Awarded $1.25 Million After Cops Tackled Him For Stealing His Own Car

A former Northwestern University doctoral student was awarded $1.25 million after police tackled the then 25-year old assuming he was trying to steal a car that was actually his own.

The Associated Press reports Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz confirmed the settlement amount had been reached Wednesday. (Jan. 23) Crosby was an engineering major in 2015 when the incident occurred.

Crosby’s attorney Timothy Touhy said his client was attempting to repair something with his car when a white woman watching called local police to report what she thought was a robbery.

The unidentified woman then followed Crosby in his car as he left his apartment and headed to a science building on Northwestern's campus, giving police his location.

Crosby reportedly exited his vehicle with his hands up but was immediately tackled by law enforcement when he didn't obey orders to get on the ground. Cops later determined Crosby was the owner of the vehicle but charged him with resisting arrest.

A spokesman for the Evanston police said the use of force was justified at the time because officers assumed a theft was in progress. Crosby was the victim of knee strikes and open-handed strikes.

A judge threw out the charges.

“It’s his hope that as a result of this case, that all of us begin a discussion on implicit bias and begin to recognize it and begin to discuss it between yourselves and your friends,” said Steven Yonover, who represented Crosby in the case.
