Deion Sanders (pictured left at court) is reportedly able to have a sigh of relief, after a Texas judge awarded custody of the kids he shares with soon-to-be-ex wife, Pilar (pictured right), to him in addition to granting him sole occupation of his home, according to Dallas Fort Worth Fox 4.

On Monday, Judge Jay Wheless listened to the final testimony from both parties in order to determine who would receive primary custody of the three children in addition to the Prosper, Texas, home the couple shared until a domestic scuffle that occurred late last month.
During the trial, Pilar alleged with her friend, Dee Boswell, who was present during the incident, that Deion hit her repeatedly with a large African statue.
According to MyFox:
[Boswell testified that] she “heard Pilar screaming. It was a gut-wrenching scream.” Then she said she ran down the hall and “I saw him standing over her with a statue in his hand and Pilar with her hands over her head. I saw him hit her with a statue.”
Pilar also allowed the court to hear a private audio recording of the incident. Unfortunately for Pilar, the audio appears to have painted her in a less-than-complimentary light. Pilar could reportedly be heard saying to Deion, “Shut up, b*tch!” along with a number of other expletives while the children cried for her to stop.
Pilar continued cursing and called Deion a punk and a little girl.
