LOS ANGELES (September 29, 2006) — For nearly 2 years, Access Hollywood has been the third wheel in Eva Longoria and Tony Parker?s relationship.
And as stories begin to circulate that the couple has split, we separate the real story from the rumors.
Unfortunately, right now, it appears as if gossip about trouble in the couple?s relationship may in fact be true.
In a statement to Access, Eva?s publicist says ?Tony and Eva are going through a very difficult time right now just like any other couple with very demanding schedules.?
Just four nights ago, Eva appeared on The Tonight Show and spoke happily about Tony, even joking with Jay Leno that she makes him watch ?Dancing With The Stars?.
The couple met for the first time in the locker room after a San Antonio Spurs? game, after Eva told a local news reporter that Tony was her favorite player on the team The meeting was caught on tape and will air on ?NBA Access With Ahmad Rashad?.
One magazine, Life and Style, claims that the main issue between the couple is the 7-year age difference between Eva and her younger boyfriend.
In the past, Tony has told Access that age is not an issue, because he is ?more mature? than she is, and actually considers them to be ?the same age?.
