March 14, 2007.NFL great Deion Sanders may have done a lot of terrible things his life. But nothing could be as shameful as what his ex-wife is accusing him of now.
MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Deion's ex-wife Carolyn has filed a lawsuit accusing the former player of stealing $1.75M from his two children's (Deiondra and Deion Jr.) trust fund. The suit claims that the fund, which once had more than $2M in it - is now left with less than $300K.
One of Deion's family members spoke exclusively to MediaTakeOut.com about the case. According to the family member, Deion's scheme came to light when 17 year old Deiondra asked for money to buy a car. The insider explains, "She wanted to use her trust fund money to buy the car. But when we looked into the fund, there was hardly anything left - and Deion was the only person with access to the accounts."
And Deion's kin tells MediaTakeOut.com that he has no idea why the NFL great would pocket his children's cash. The insider told, "Deion might have [taken the money] just because he felt like it. He's the kind of guy that thinks he can do anything - and no one can stop him." Our source added, "Or maybe he did it because he's broke. You never know, he did just buy a brand new $10M house."
Damn. Stealing your kids money? Now, that's as low as it gets.
