Eva Longoria Files For Divorce From Tony Parker
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eva Longoria has filed for divorce from Tony Parker, citing irreconcilable differences.
Longoria filed for divorce Wednesday morning in Los Angeles Superior Court. She and Parker, the All-Star point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, were married July 7, 2007. They have no children together.
In the filing, Longoria, who had taken Parker’s name, is requesting that her name be restored to Eva Jacqueline Longoria. The filing also states that the couple had a prenuptial agreement.
Just a day prior, Longoria’s representative told TMZ.com Parker had not filed for divorce and didn’t even have a divorce lawyer.
Parker made no hint as to what caused the split between him and the star of TV’s “Desperate Housewives” during a brief meeting with a throng of reporters outside his team’s locker room about an hour before a game.
“It’s a difficult time right now for me and Eva,” Parker said. “We got a joint statement and everything else is our private life.”
Asked about speculation that Parker might have been involved with the wife of a former Spurs teammate, Parker replied: “That’s my private life.”
Parker spoke to the media for less than a minute before a team official ended the interview.
Longoria and Parker were married in a civil ceremony in France on July 6, 2007. The next day, a priest married them in a church across from the Louvre Museum, followed by an exclusive bash at a storied French chateau.
As a member of the Spurs, Parker has won three NBA championships in recent years. Longoria often had a courtside seat at his games.
Each posted a statement on their Twitter accounts addressing the divorce.
“We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness,” it said.
