He had signed up a prenup with her and thus, he did not pay her fees and got the custody of the kids. Pilar was having an extramarital affair with an 22 year old singer, Derrick Smith. She wanted to keep the relationship, secret and showed that she is managing his career. When Deion first filed the paper, she pleaded that she would make the relationship between them, work. However, when he filed again, he had all the required evidence to prove the sexual extramarital relationship.

A few sources say that this was his plan to avoid paying her a huge amount. Some rumors say that Pilar took the social media help to show people that her husband is falsely accusing her.

The court ruled for Deion and gave him the custody of his children. When the separation settlement was going on, she was provided with 5,500 dollars per month. However, she said that she needed to pay for Derrick’s studio and her lifestyle and demanded more. Deion was not ready to pay for his ex-wife’s boyfriend. Pilar later suggested that she has a marital property with Deion in Dallas and he was trying to hide his assets. Deion showed the documents for the property and her name was not on the deed.
