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.

In your last TMZ live, the girl in the purple sweater could not have been more obvious in her desire to be on TV. This is my first comment, I regret if I am in error of the right area to post it.

Maybe if you are famous you get divorced in 60 days in Texas but the majority of us don't. It took me 2 1/2 years to divorce my ex-jackass in Harris County and I we didn't have near the assets that they have!

"Tony is being represented by attorney Richard Orsinger, the same lawyer who is repping Brent Barry, whose wife was allegedly sexting Tony." What? Isn't that a conflict of interests? How is this legal? Very strange.

This 'Ass' Is More '*****' Than Eva And She's The Woman! There's No Pity For Him, His Legal Team, Or Is Argument...He Should Have Stayed Single. Eva Is Definitely Wifey Material But Obviously He Wasn't Mature/Husband Material Yet.

She's 35, Let Her Find Someone In Her Caliber. He's 25 and Needs To Live It Up Before Crackin It Down.

The media has historically made a much bigger deal out of minor events, and even major catastrophes. As a lawyer, Harvey, you should understand that what you do is instigative, and not exactly conducive to a peaceful resolution for the litigants.
Maybe it makes life fun for some people to watch others experience misery and failure.
I am saddened by the number of divorce stories on your site right now. Those are very personal issues, and litigants deserve the chance to work through them productively and privately. A person's fame doesn't.make it right for you to hinder effective conflict resolution.
