Tony to X17 -- Screw You, Sue You for $20 Mil

12/19/2007 9:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by Tony Parker -- Eva's hubby -- against X17, the photo agency that published reports and text messages alleging that he cheated on Eva Longoria shortly after the couple were married.
Tony and Eva
In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Parker alleges X17 defamed him, claiming, "X17 had to know that the story was false, or at the very least, it had to have entertained serious doubts about the credibility of its supposed source."

X17 published stories that French model Alexandra Paressant had "an affair with Mr. Eva Longoria and that the two carried on a secret relationship for about two months."

The San Antonio Spur seems particularly pissed that X17 never sought to "verify the information with Mr. Parker, Ms. Longoria, any of their representatives or....anyone else who might have knowledge of the truth or falsity of the allegations."

The suit states, "Tony Parker has never had sexual relations with a woman named Alexandra Paressant."

The suit seeks at least $20 million.

So what. It takes $350 to file a lawsuit. It will be settled for "an undisclosed amount". Which means Tony will get nothing and there will be a confidentiality agreement. If X17 is smart, they will depose Tony under oath. Ther is NO way he could state under oath that he has never cheated on eva (the shrew), unless he lies. All of this is allegedly of course.

Is thatone of those "technicalities" thingies? Wouldn't it just have been easier to just say that they never slept with ANYBODY rather than listing just that one girl's name. I'm just sayin'. Wow. I guess something's got to keep the earth spinning while the writers are on strike.

I believe Parker did cheat. Initially Parker did not deny this affair. Just some nonsense re" I love me wife, yada, yada etc.."
He can't prevail in the suit because it's true and he's a public figure. To prevail the newspaper would have to print it with reckless disregard for the truth. Number #1 that legal standard is almost impossible to prove and furhtermore if Parker had the affair he can't win the suit because the information was true. I.e..., Parker is going to lose the lawsuit and look like an idiot.
And the " fairytale" overblown love story will be over.
Not a moment too soon.

why exactly did X17 go ahead with this? did they just get lax and think nobody would do anything about it or what?

Sue them Tony.....they need to back up what they say or pay!

What's up with all you self righteous people that think Jamie Lynn needs to be kicked off of her show. If you think she is the only kid that has done something like that you are living in the stone ages, well even back then they did it too. Get a life. I personally wish her the best. If your kids are having to look at TV to get their role models that must mean there is no one at home that is their role model. Good luck Jamie Lynn.
