If there was a question as to whether Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds are dating or just friends, the couple made it plain and confirmed their romance.
“Every night is a date night,” Deion said when asked about Tracey accompanying him to T.D. Jakes’ recent anniversary celebration. “This isn’t a date night just because cameras are in here.”
Deion, who is in the middle of a messy divorce with estranged wife Pilar Sanders, didn’t specify exactly when he and Tracey became an “official” item.
“We’ll never kiss and tell that,” Deion told HipHollywood with a laugh.
Although there’s a personal relationship, that doesn’t mean there isn’t also a professional one. "The Insider" reports that Deion and Tracey are also working together on a new TV series.
"I’m producing Deion’s new reality show," Tracey said. "It’s going to be great. It’s gonna be really about the next chapter of his life."
Deion is no stranger to reality TV. He and Pilar allowed cameras to chronicle their lives for the series, “Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love.”
While some might wonder why Deion has entered a romance that could become even more high profile than his last, the Hall of Famer offered one reason he doubts this relationship will become tabloid fodder.
“Tracey has her own. That avoids a lot of drama right there,” he said.
The two didn’t mention Deion’s marriage troubles or ex-wife at all, but Deion may have indirectly fired a few shots Pilar’s way when he complimented Tracey.
“She’s grown. She’s intelligent. She’s sophisticated. She’s beautiful inside and out. There’s no façade. When she takes off the makeup, she’s still beautiful,” he said.
