NFL Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders won more than $2 million in a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, according to media sources.

Online gossip website TMZ reported that Sanders won a $2.2 million judgement against his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders, for statements she made alleging that she was a victim of domestic violence.

The couple divorced in 2011 after 12 years of marriage and three children together, according to The Sporting News.

According to TMZ, the money Pilar Sanders owes under the judgment offsets the amount Deion Sanders owed under their divorce settlement. Her lawyers plan to appeal the judgment, the website reported.
