Though on Tuesday, Eva Longoria released a statement denying that she and basketball player Tony Parker were getting divorced, on Wednesday (November 17), the “Desperate Housewives” star did in fact file to dissolve their marriage.
TMZ posted the papers that the actress filed at L.A. County Superior Court, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Longoria is also asking for spousal support from Parker, who plays for the San Antonio Spurs. The legal docs also mention the prenup the couple signed in 2007 and amended last year.
The couple had been plagued with rumors of Parker’s infidelity, and a source told TMZ that the actress is “devastated.”
Just one day before filing, Longoria’s rep issued a denial regarding a TMZ report that Parker had filed for divorce at a Texas courthouse. The site claimed two clerks at the Bexar County Courthouse confirmed papers were filed and sealed by a family law judge. TMZ later took down its report.
Longoria, 35, and Parker, 28, met in November 2004 and were engaged in November 2006. They exchanged vows during a small civil service and again, a day later, on July 7, 2007, at Chateau of Vaux le Vicomte, a 17th-century castle on the outskirts of Paris.
