*Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds have called it quits after 12 years together. 

On Sunday night, Edmonds confirmed on social media that she and Coach Prime will not live happily ever after together, saying the decision to pull the plug on their relationship was mutual.  

“To EVERYONE who has been there for us, supported us, and shown us love,” she wrote, Sports Illustrated reports. 

“We have mutually decided that it is best for us to move forward in life AS FRIENDS and have made this decision with love in our hearts, respect for each other, and appreciation for the time we’ve shared together,” Edmonds added. “Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this transition. Thank you for being there for us ALL THESE YEARS! We love you and appreciate you SO MUCH!”

In 2019, Edmonds announced she and Sanders were engaged after eight years of dating. In a throwback image of the couple, she added the caption: “Sending LOVE to MY LOVE/MY FIANCÉ @deionsanders! ??? God is SO GOOD! We’re 8 years in, made it through the storms TOGETHER, and will be spending the rest of our lives TOGETHER! To all the couples out there… stay REAL with each other, LISTEN to each other, and MOST of all.. keep LOVE and GOD in your heart. When you do, you can make it through ANY storm!”

Edmonds was previously married to singer/producer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds from 1992 to 2005. They share two children, Brandon and Dylan. She was also briefly married to Eddie Murphy in 2008 before calling it quits two weeks after their wedding.

“After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further,” Murphy and Edmonds said in a statement at the time. “While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends.

Sanders has been married twice before: to Carolyn Chambers (1989–1998), with whom he has two children, and Pilar Biggers-Sanders (1999–2013), with whom he shares three children.
