Tony Parker Speaks Up About Divorce

Tony Parker has spoken up about his divorce from Eva Longoria. The San Antonio Spurs point guard said he was aware that the "Desperate Housewives" star would be filing for divorce.

Longoria filed for divorce Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences, amid rumors that she has discovered Parker had been exchanging text messages with another woman. Various reports have identified the third party as Erin Barry, wife of Parker's former teammate Brent Barry, whose marriage is also in the midst of divorce.

Longoria's friend, Mario Lopez, claims she believed the NBA star had cheated on her earlier in the marriage, and that he kept in touch with the woman on Facebook.

The actress, 35, already issued a statement on Twitter, saying that although they decided to divorce, they "love each other deeply."

Parker also said through his rep, "Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately. I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles," adding that reports that he filed for divorce in Texas were not true.

Meanwhile, TMZ has quoted sources connected with Parker, saying the divorce has been in the works for at least a week before Longoria filed for divorce.

According to the insiders, while Tony indeed had a "sexting relationship" with Erin, it ended months ago and that it never progressed to a physical relationship.

Longoria was also said to be aware that her seven years younger husband was planning on filing for divorce in Texas because it was more convenient, but she talked him out of it because she wanted to file in L.A.

And contrary to her rep's statement, the actress allegedly not only knew she was filing for divorce, but it was timed to coincide with the Us Weekly interview. As for why the two sides are telling different stories, a source close to Parker told TMZ that Longoria was "into the whole PR thing."
