Actress Eva Longoria filed for divorce from her husband, NBA star, Tony Parker yesterday at the Los Angeles Superior Court. The documents cite “irreconcilable differences” for the split, but rumors of infidelity are emerging.
Longoria, 35, reportedly told long-time friend Mario Lopez that Parker, 28, had been cheating on her. It is said that rumors of Parker cheating on her shortly after they married were true, but Eva stayed because she felt she owed the marriage a second shot. It is reported that Mario Lopez confirms that Eva found hundreds of text messages between Parker and another woman.
A source says that this other woman is Erin Barry, wife of Brent Barry, who played with Parker on the San Antonio Spurs from 2004 to 2008.
“They knew each other, sent each other messages,” the source claims. “It was flirtatious, but he never did anything with her.”
If the rumors of cheating are true, then Longoria is choosing to remain cool.
The Desperate Housewives star wrote via Twitter yesterday, “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness.”
Interestingly enough, on the Desperate Housewives episode that aired on October 24th of this year, Eva Longoria’s character, Gabrielle, is shown having a conversation with new cast mate Vanessa Williams’ character, Renee, regarding Renee’s cheating, athlete ex-husband. Gabrielle says, “Being married to a pro athlete…,” shakes her head, “…it must be a nightmare.”
