Tony Parker’s Divorce Lawyer Quits

Celebuzz / November 30, 2010

Tony Parker has just received a little bit more bad news.

TMZ reports that the NBA star—who’s currently in the process of divorcing his wife, Desperate Housewives beauty Eva Longoria—has been dropped by his Texas-based divorce lawyer, Richard Orsinger.

The reason? Well, as it turns out, Orsinger—who filed Parker’s divorce petition in Texas on November 19—also represents Parker’s former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry, who’s also getting a divorce. From Erin Barry, the woman Parker has been accused of sexting behind Longoria’s back. Awk-waaard

Orsinger reportedly wasn’t aware that Barry would play into Parker’s case when he took Parker on as a client, but has now dropped Parker due to conflict-of-interest concerns. 

According to sources, Parker is currently in the process of looking for another attorney. Longoria, meanwhile, has also filed divorce papers in Los Angeles.
