SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Tony Parker has filed his own paperwork for divorce from wife Eva Longoria Parker, Access Hollywood has learned.
According to a docket filed with the Bexar County Courthouse in Texas, the San Antonio Spurs star filed for divorce on Friday, under the initials W.P. (William Parker).
The request comes just two days after Eva Longoria Parker filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences,” and requesting spousal support.
According to TMZ, who first reported Tony’s filing, the athlete’s stated reason for divorce is as follows: “The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationships and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, according to an Access source, the NBA star has denied reports of an affair with Erin Barry (the wife of his former teammate, Brent Barry), but allegedly admitted to sending text messages to the woman.
Access called Erin Barry on Wednesday. A woman who answered the phone was audibly emotional and said she had no comment. She was not reachable for comment on Thursday. Access was not able to reach Brent Barry for comment.
When Eva filed for divorce this week after three years of marriage, it caught many fans by surprise – but it was apparently something Tony knew was coming.
In a statement to Access Hollywood on Thursday, Tony revealed he was aware of Eva’s intentions.
“Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately,” Tony said in a statement released through his rep to Access. “I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles.”
Eva, 35, and Tony, 28, tied the knot in France in July 2007 after getting engaged in November 2006.
The two first met in November 2004, when Eva – a big Spurs fan – paid a visit to the team’s locker room following a game.
