Tony Parker's Lawyer Blindsides Eva Longoria

11/22/2010 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Eva Longoria and Tony Parker both want their divorce to go smoothly, but Tony's sudden move Friday to file his own divorce papers angered Eva and complicated the process.

TMZ broke the story ... Tony filed his own divorce papers in Texas, just days after Eva filed in California. Sources tell us Eva's side had absolutely no idea Tony's lawyer filed the docs -- and, we're told, Eva was "very upset" when she found out.

According to our sources, both Tony and Eva want their prenup enforced. But when Eva's lawyer filed the divorce papers, the attorney checked the box that reserved Eva's right to collect spousal support -- something we're told is inconsistent with their prenup.

Sources say ... since Tony's lawyer felt Eva's divorce papers left open the possibility she would challenge the prenup, he wanted to protect his client by filing in Texas, which several experts tell us could be beneficial to Tony in terms of enforcing the prenup.

In the end, sources connected with the couple tell us Eva and Tony are in sync -- all was calm on Sunday -- but right now there are two divorce petitions in two states, and someone's gotta give.

Stay tuned ..

It takes 2 to tango....both r stubborn, self centred. Yes, Who is Tony parker before he married Eva. Nobody knows him except for basketball fanatic and France. Hope for the best for both of them...They should really sit down to overcome their problems. Give love a chance rather than getting at each other throat.

Of course she's upset. She wants spousal support, right? Texas is not a community property state and has some of the most restrictive spousal support eligbility requirements.
~ Married more than 10 years or Spouse cannot obtain employment or Spouse has special-needs children preventing employment or Spouse has no assets or ... more than a dozen of them and she doesn't seem to meet any of them. It's also limited to a max of $2500/mth!

This is funny...She was clucking about how she got back at him by blindsiding him by filing in CA when he didn't expect it. The Karma train is coming back around skank...How do you like it?

See? THIS is the true side of marriage. Every divorced couple starts out saying they won't end up divorced and then a few years later they end up in court hurling obscenities and the kitchen sink at each other. If you don't sign a piece of paper, you're more likely to work things out amicably amongst yourself and just go your separate ways and possibly still remain friends. THIS is why marriage does not work, yet people still drink the marriage kool-aid thinking it won't happen to them. I just laugh at newlyweds who rub their marriages in my unmarried face, knowing that in a few years this is what they'll end up doing to each other!
