Eva Longoria has filed for a divorce from her husband, Tony Parker, after she discovered texts from another woman on his phone.
The Desperate Housewives star, 35, is said to have confided to her friend Mario Lopez, who hosts the US entertainment show Extra, that NBA star, Parker had cheated on her during their marriage and that she found “hundreds of text messages” on his phone from the wife of one of his teammates at the San Antonio Spurs, the Daily Mail reported.
Neither the woman’s name, nor Parker’s teammate’s name has been revealed.
Longoria confirmed the split today, tweeting: “It is with great sadness that after seven years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness”.
Her husband later tweeted the same message.
With her divorce papers filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on November 17, Eva is said to be represented by high profile celebrity divorce lawyer Lance Spiegel, who has previously worked for Sandra Bullock in her divorce from Jesse James and Russell Simmons in his divorce from Kimora Lee.
There is a prenuptial agreement between Parker and Longoria, according to US reports.
Longoria and Parker were married in July 2007 in a Roman Catholic ceremony in Paris, France after meeting at a San Antonio Spurs basketball game, when she and her father Enrique were invited back to the team’s press room to meet the players.
