Tony Parker Says He Knew Eva Longoria Was Divorcing Him

Many people might have been surprised by Eva Longoria’s decision to divorce her husband, San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker—especially after the confusing back-and-forth that went on earlier this week—but Parker wasn’t one of them.

One day after the Desperate Housewives beauty filed divorce papers, signaling the end of her three-year marriage to Parker, the basketballer is opening up about the split, telling People magazine via a statement from his rep that it wasn’t a sudden decision:

“Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately. I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles.” 

Though rumors have been swirling that Parker had been unfaithful to Parker, in particular with Erin Barry, the wife of his ex-teammate Brent Barry, a source close to the athlete told Celebuzz yesterday that the two are merely good friends, and had been texting each other to express mutual support as they both experienced troubles in their respective marriage.

Parker goes on to note that he has not sought legal counsel in the matter, suggesting that the split will be amicable, and devoid of the typical ugly courtroom battles that mark many  divorces:

“I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California. We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private.”
