Tony Parker: Not Blindsided By Eva Longoria Divorce

by at . Comments

Tony Parker, whose marriage crumbled amid a relationship with Erin Barry, says he was not blindsided when wife Eva Longoria filed for divorce this week.

"Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately," Parker told People magazine. "I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles."

Parker also denied a report – since retracted – that he went to court first, only to have Eva convince him not to, at which point she filed out of revenge.

Tony and Eva split amid reports of him sexting Erin Barry.

"I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire attorneys in either California or Texas," Parker says. "We plan to continue to keep discussions of this private."

Good luck with that.

When you have an affair with a teammate's wife - although sources close to Tony say there was only sexting and no actual sex involved - stories spiral out of control.

Erin Barry, whose husband Brent played with Tony on the San Antonio Spurs from 2004-08, is in the process of divorcing him as well. What a bizarre, sad story.

From all indications, Eva loved, adored and trusted Tony to no end. Hopefully these two young people will be able to resolved their differences without divorce.

it doesn't matter if he never had sex with the chick. He was sexting which is a form of cheating. The only person he should be doing that with is his wife. But they lasted a lot longer than i though they would.
