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.

    yep… I didn’t think that whole Corpus Christi hispanic chick thing with the French black dude thing was gonna be a very good mix.

    Good for Tony! Now he can focus on something important like basketball

  5. Guess she’s not a “Desperate Housewife” after all.

  6. Ernest Frank says:

    With the economy in such a mess,I hate to see people like Tony and Eva always looking for publicity. I’m sure the Marrage was a sham anyway.

  7. Rich says:

    Lamar Odom is next.

  8. Michael says:

    Wow, she is a sharp business woman. Tony just signed a $50 million extension last month with the Spurs and NOW she wants a divorce once she knew the terms of his new finances.

    Hey, Tony… try not to think about your ex with other guys and living it up on your dime when you give her millions of your hard earned cash.

    You should really use your head to research information before posting. Signing a new contract for work is future employment earnings. Ms. America want to be, Eva Longoria, will never see a dime from that as that is money to be made in the future. Property acquired during married is equally divided upon divorce. Unless they were doing a business and she was involved in the contract. As we already know,Tony Parker plays basketball and Eva runs around. SHE ISN’T ENTITLED TO S@#T!

    I couldn’t believe they are getting divorce. I thought they have a good marriage relationship. Fame is always divorce in short time. It is sad for them to split.

  11. Pepe says:

    Lets hope she hooks up with Tampa Bay Ray star Evan Longoria next

  13. jip says:

  14. boxboy says:

    Good now she can concentrate on helping the illegals.

  15. rjsmitty says:

    Another interracial relationship fails ??? Who would of thought

  16. leroybrown says:

    NBA players are stupid

  17. bigjim1 says:

    read the article dip shi*s they have a prenup so neither one will get the others money, which as an accomplished actress she has more of.

  18. Ida says:

    I never thought they were right for each other. He appeared to be a low-key star basketball player. His lifestyle didn’t resemble his earnings. She, on the other hand, was an attention-grabbing starlette wanna-be. She made a good/comfortable living, but wow, how much money and attention can you get from Desperate Housewives!!!!! And plus, her face had r-e-a-l-l-y start to fade. From just looking at her, I thought she was a lot older.
