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 ..

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!

Don't pay her a thing. She makes $400,000 per episode of DH. That's $8,000,000 a year. How much more money does she really need for her hair dye jobs

Hmmmm, their or should I say his primary residence is Texas, where the divorce laws are a lot more fair. Isn't that where Sandra Bullock filed for divorce the process is faster, and it appears Eva could wait to run to the media to tell her story. So, I am sure Tony didn't want this to play out for the Cali 6 month divorce time limit.

She's trashy. Nobody knew her before DH. Nobody will know her after. And the person who said she looks like a rat is right. She does. A rat with a little-boy-body. Yuck. Maybe she can find solace in the arms of her dear friend Mario Lopez. What? She did that already? Ok.

"I'm filing!" "No, I'm filing." She blindsided him with how quickly she divorced him. Now he is exercising his right and divorcing her in the state they both legally resided in...

Do judges really (try to) decide divorce cases based upon who is at fault the marriage ends?

You can have residents in two states, but you can be only domeciled in one. Is it Texas or is it California? Where are they registered to vote? What state issued their driver licenses? Someone may have some legal issues beyond a divorce.

Go Tony Go!

I'm not on any team..unless they have an Anti-Eva team. I used to admire her but she turned out to be a b i t c h just like the rest of hollyweird women.

Do a search for Eva without makeup and then you can tell if she's beautiful or not.

Eva it's full of surprises, what people don't know it's she is a flirt (the way she does it with Mario Lopez it's to obvious and respectful) what is she talking about? she is not a saint, She is a manipulate, self center and selfish person. She tried to be smart and filed in California for the divorce as always she expected Tony to do nothing, what is she thinking? Let me tell you something, it takes 2 to tango in a relationship, their marriage was a total circus, she was always kissing, holding Tony, you can see that in all the pictures, she loves the attention and the spot light. In Europe since, Tony is a Hero and very famous thanks to him she became famous, nobody knew her before in France or Europe. I don't think he loved the publicity and paparazzi at all, he was just a player that one day, Eva and her father wanted to meet backstage in San Antonio all the players from the team since, she is a big fan of the Spurs.
