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."

I don't know any details of their break-up...but it always seemed that she was more in love with him than he with her. The feelings just didn't seem to be reciprocal. I observed from their interviews that she was always gushing over him and doing most of the talking.

Tony wanted to file in Texas because Texas courts have no community property laws and the wives usually always get screwed. California has community property laws and wives get a better share. I had friends where the husband left the wife in California and moved to Texas. 6 months later he begs her for another chance and asks her to move to Texas. She does. 30 days after she moves to Texas, he dumps her, files for divorce, and leaves her and their three kids penniless and homeless. She gave up her job for him and he dumps her, takes the house and doesn't have to pay child support. Texas is a patriarchal state and holds no benefit to wives being divorced.

Marriage is a sacred bond between two individuals. It really seams that Eva was just out for the money and publicity which is wrong and sad because that really lets everyone know what type of person she really is. If you truly love someone you would work hard on making it work not file for divorce so quickly when you hit a snag in the road. Longoria you truly disgust me and then to file for divorce in California, people like you put the hispanic race down!!!!!

Eva should get her revenge by releasing the text messsages.
Tony & Erin would then go find a rock to hide under. Shame on them for behaving like 16 year old teenagers. What goes around comes around. I feel really sorry for Brent & Eva and the 2 boys.

Youre an idiot, Tony. Love how people want to blame Eva for being a trusting wife... Does he not realize who the hell he was married to and who he was "sexting with"? Erin Barry is indeed a slut for sexting her friend and ex-husband's basketball teammate. Not understanding the need to cheat on someone like Eva with someone like Erin. Seriously Tony, keep it in your pants! Go back to France with that crap!

These healthy sport's males will suc***b to temptation. You know that before you foolishly marry them. They never have been true, and never will be. I remember a Cleveland Indian baseball player in the 60.s. a good player I won't mention his position. We all were downtown and it started snowing early that night in October. Within hours there was no way to get home that night. We all were straded. We had to spend the night downtown. The rest is history.Now he is playing baseball in heaven. Not a bad deal.

tony...get a damn good lawyer, stay out of the spotlight. next time find someone not in entertainment, hollywood types have thin skins and big egos...and zero knack for making a go at anything that takes longer than a sitcom to make. Take your time, and enjoy being single...the woman you're looking for is NOT in Hollywood, and leave the cougars alone. Get someone with something more that a nice butt and a smile...

I do not believe anything this witch says. He sat in LA bored to tears all summer until on tv she said that she can't wait until he goeshome. Besides, she has admitted to being a lesbian if you ever look up her porn lesbian film that was censored in accordance with the Federal Courts. AND she INSISTED sErina Brett were in the Grease nightmare flm last year. And she sat and talked to Erin whenever they were out together. My opinion is she wrote the tapes, set him up and had a lot off ehr chest. HE never admitted anything-he only DENIED PHYSICAL CONTACT-that is voice,film, etc.. That is not an admission of GUILT. This divorce will be lightning fast. He is siding with Brent.

If Erin Barry is 38 how is she a younger and hotter woman. Eva looks 10 times better.

Just one of those days     

You can't maintain a marriage when there are that many miles between you. The problem isn't the texting... the problem is that Erin was there and Eva wasn't. Gotta spend time with your man... or someone else will. Its about choices... they both chose their careers. What we are seeing now are the consequences of those choices. There are no children from this union; life will go on for these two.

I agree w/ #26 and #35---cheating is flirting, "sexting"--it doesn't have to be physical. Unfortunately, lots of men don't believe that. And the women who allow men to do this to their wives are skanks and deserve nothing but unhappiness in their sorry pathetic lives. I wish women would respect each other! There's a saying for guys "bros before hoes"--women should follow that for other women! Women should shoot down men who start texting them by saying "why are you being an ******* to your wife?" I hate stupid b$tches who let men do whatever they want....

ok I agree why do famous people get married? They never last, she wants her career, and there is nothing wrong with that, but why get married to get more air time or to hype your show. He will be seen as the bad guy because he had a relationship with another women, he went outside of the marriage to get what he wasn't getting at home. Both are equally to blame. Now both want to spin it to each other advantage. This is her 2nd mess, this is his first. DON"T GET MARRIED it's a waste of time and money. Just live togather.
