Eva/Tony Divorce -- He Wanted To File; Denies Sex

11/18/2010 2:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ ... the divorce between Eva Longoria and Tony Parker was in the works for at least a week before Eva filed, contrary to the story Eva's people are telling. And Tony denies he ever had sex with an ex-teammate's wife.

Erin Barry, Tony Parker Mistress
Sources connected with Tony tell TMZ ... Tony did indeed have a "sexting relationship" with Erin Barry, the estranged wife of former San Antonio Spur Brent Barry, but it ended months ago. The sources insist, "They never had a physical relationship."

And sources connected with Tony tell TMZ ... Tony and Eva were well aware that the divorce would be filed. We're told Tony was planning on filing for divorce in San Antonio, Texas because it was more convenient, but, "Eva talked him out of it because she wanted to file in Los Angeles." 

Sources also tell us -- contrary to the statement Eva's rep made to TMZ -- Eva not only knew she was filing for divorce, but it was timed to coincide with the Us Weekly interview.

As for why Tony and Eva are telling different stories about the divorce, a close friend of Tony's says it's simple:  "She was into the whole PR thing.  He wasn't."

Eva's people say Tony's story is untrue ... with one source telling TMZ, "Eva and Tony were still talking about working out the marriage up until the morning she filed."

Eva is a beautiful woman, and they were a good looking couple. but i dont understand why woman of all people blame eva. A marraige is sacred, at least its supposed to be, even if your a celebrity. and texting sexual references to another woman is a line that a married man isnt supposed to cross. if anyone is the bitch its his ex teammates wife, who knew he was married and still didnt care!! as well as tony. i definitly know that all men do not cheat, but these women need to really consider marraige to these athletes who have no self control with thier money or women!

1. Why do it?
2. Why do it with someone that is also friends with your wife?
3. Why do it with the wife of your teammate and/or friend?
4. Why did you leave the text messages to be found?
5. Are you crazy?


1. Just because I could.
2. Just because I could.
3. Just because I could.
4. Just because I could.
5. Yes.

When asked why he had an affair with Ms. Lewinsky, Bill Clinton answered, "Just because I could."

Eva, didn't you see the signs. What the hell were you doing to allow the other woman to steal your man. She had a own husband so why the hell does she want yours. Lady what goes around comes around.

Texting is a precursor to acting upon it in person. This stuff rarely stops with the text message. It usually graduates to the next level very fast.

The invention of cell phones is wonderful for cheaters. It's private and fun and most of all it's direct with the person you are interested in. It has fueled a feeling of being able to say and do whatever you wish with little to no consequences even when you are committed to somebody. It gives a false sense of safety.

Now comes the action that destroys it all. It's easy to pick up the cell phone when it's laying on the counter or dresser at night to look at just how loyal your partner, boyfriend or husband/wife are. Too tempting particularly if you notice just one tiny thing that leads you to believe there just might be more... and there it ALL is! Even if the text messages are all cleaned up, that suggests there is something to hide here.

All in all, what Tony is claiming is not likely. He's thinking he can claim that's all it was but this, in and of itself, is cheating. Sexting with a married person IS cheating. Married and/or committed people aren't talking sex with somebody else privately.

I'd bet good money Tony has had multiple affairs- as alleged.
