Tony Parker Files for Divorce In Texas

11/20/2010 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tony Parker has filed his own divorce petition against Eva Longoria in Texas, TMZ has learned, and it has all the markings of a legal battle.

Tony Parker Divorce

Tony's divorce petition was filed in Bexar County, Texas.  The stamp shows today's date.  Sources connected with Tony confirm a document was filed.

Eva filed for divorce earlier in the week in Los Angeles, CA., setting up a legal battle over where the case will be heard. Texas divorces can be handled quickly -- in as little as 60 days.

According to the petition, which was filed by initials -- W.P and E.P. -- Tony states the reason for the divorce:  "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."

Here's what's interesting ... As we first reported, the couple signed a prenup, but in Tony's petition he makes no mention of it.  To the contrary, he writes, "Petitioner believes Petitioner and Respondent will enter into an agreement for the division of their estate."  Since they've already signed a prenup, the word "will" is curious.

Tony's petition also states, "Petitioner owns certain separate property that is not part of the community estate of the parties ..."

Tony's lawyer did not return our call.  And no comment so far from Eva's camp. And how's this for a twist ...Tony is being represented by attorney Richard Orsinger, the same lawyer who is repping Brent Barry, whose wife was allegedly sexting Tony.

It seems as though Tony Parker wants to expedite their divorce by filing in Texas instead of California. If they already have a prenup in place, Why not?. There's no point in dragging out the inevitable especially since there aren't any children involved. Under the cir***stances, it may not be a bad idea just to go ahead and get it over with. The sooner they can move forward with their lives, the better!!!

Sorry, TMZ. You're trying to make the divorce petition into something scandalous or interesting when there isn't much there. Everything you quoted in the article is boilerplate language in Texas divorce petitions. You'd see the same paragraphs in just about every petition in the state.

You married an NBA star Eva - what did you really expect?? Don't know why 90% of celebs/athletes/musicians even get married..These two don't have any kids together do they?

So he cheats on her emotionally and/or physically, but is mad at her and files for divorce in order to initiate a pissing contest. What a DB.

"Fairytales don't come true it can happen to you." Marriage is an unnecessary prison to fatten the capitalistic system we have no choose but to live in at this time. It a lovely way to celebrate the honeymoon part of an relationship and have a huge party of free food, music and drinks with a bunch of family and friends and in her case the world.
Stay single stop looking. You must like being by yourself and you must be inlove with yourself and commit yourself not be incharge of other peoples feelings and everything if done positively will fall into place.
Anyway it is someonewhat enbarrasing. Mario did not want her now Tony.

This is what happens when men, who aren't ready to settle, are "forced" to marry and, I believe this guy was not ready. .. so. . .take your lumps and think next time you want to take the "leap". .

Tony, that is so BRILLIANT! Texas unlike California does not require Alimony, only child support. She is not getting a penny if he gets his way.
