Actress Eva Longoria has filed for divorce from husband, basketball player Tony Parker, just a few days after her publicist said they are not separating.
“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,” usmagazine.com quoted her as saying in a statement.
The “Desperate Housewives” star filed papers to end her three year marriage citing irreconcilable differences in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday. She has also requested that her maiden name Eva Jacqueline Longoria to be restored.
The divorce comes after reports that Tony has been exchanging personal texts with a mutual female friend for nearly a year.
