From “Desperate Housewife” to Former Housewife: Eva Wants Divorce

On Behalf of | Nov 17, 2010 | Divorce

According to sources, the three-year marriage between Eva Longoria and Tony Parker is nearing its end. Talk of the split began earlier this week when media suggested that Longoria filed papers in a Texas court house. But more credible sources have corrected that suggestion today, saying that the “Desperate Housewives” co-star did, in fact, file for divorce, but she filed in L.A., not Texas.

ABC News and other media reports indicate that Longoria has confirmed the buzz about her desired divorce. She shares, “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce.” Longoria’s documented reason for the split is irreconcilable differences, and reports suggest that those irreconcilable differences are connected to infidelity in the marriage.

Allegedly, Parker has not kept his promise to be faithful to Longoria, and the Texas-born pageant beauty turned actress no longer trusts her husband. She reportedly discovered scandalous text messages sent between Parker and a common friend. As a result of her husband’s alleged unfaithfulness, says a source, Longoria is “devastated.”

People magazine reports that the divorce papers Longoria filed yesterday indicate that the all-star couple has a prenuptial agreement to rely on now that their union has come to this point. Not many details about the document are available at this point, but sources state that Longoria has requested that she be paid spousal support after the impending split.

We will keep you posted with any new developments to this story.
