Eva Longoria and her soon-to-be-ex husband, NBA star Tony Parker, agree on at least one thing: They’re both sad about filing for a divorce.
On Thursday afternoon, Parker posted the following on his official Facebook page: “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Eva and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness.” (It sounds familiar because it’s the same statement Longoria tweeted Wednesday.)
Parker posted the statement after providing an elusive interview before a Spurs basketball game against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. “This is a difficult time right now for me and Eva," he told reporters according to CNN affiliate KSAT in San Antonio. "Everything else is our private life.”
Even those infidelity rumors. Longoria reportedly told “Extra’s” Mario Lopez that she’d found “hundreds of text messages” on Parker’s phone from a woman married to a fellow Spurs player.
When asked to comment, Parker simply responded, “Everything else is our private life. That's my private life."
Yesterday, Longoria filed for divorce on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences" and is seeking spousal support, according to a petition filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The couple signed a prenuptial agreement prior to their wedding in July, 2007, and amended the document in June of 2009.
While it's been reported that Longoria plans to spend Thanksgiving with friends, it looks like Parker's turning to his San Antonio Spurs teammates for support.
"I'm [getting] great support from teammates and coaches," Parker said. "Right now, I just want to concentrate 100 percent on...winning basketball games."
