The former NFL cornerback and MLB outfielder won more than $2.2 million after a judge ruled his ex-wife (Pilar) defamed her former husband’s character,after she claimed in online posts and in interviews that she was a victim of domestic abuse, TMZ.com reported.
The settlement, TMZ reported, will offset any money the Pro Football Hall of Famer would have paid Pilar in their divorce settlement, though her attorney told TMZ that she plans to appeal the decision.
Deion served Pilar with divorce papers in 2011 after 12 years of marriage. The couple has three children together.
