Eva Longoria and Tony Parker have not joined the list of high-profile celebrity breakups despite a story that the basketball player had filed for divorce on Monday, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The actress’ rep Liza Anderson was quoted as saying that the story was “100%” false.
On Tuesday afternoon, TMZ had posted that Parker filed for divorce in Texas. The website subsequently removed the story from their homepage as strong denials from Longoria’s camp made the rounds to various news organizations.
In a later post, the website was forced to backtrack on its claim saying, “A rep for Eva Longoria tells TMZ our story that Tony Parker filed for divorce is not true… Eva’s rep tells us Tony did not file and does not even have a divorce lawyer.”
As for their claim that two clerks at the Bexar County Courthouse said the case was filed and sealed, they admitted: “Another clerk at the courthouse now tells us she’s in charge of sealed cases and says no such case has crossed her desk.”
The couple, who married in 2007, first got together after they were introduced following a Spurs game in 2004. Parker invited Longoria’s dad out to dinner as a way to get to know the actress more.
They were seen looking happy together on October 23 in Los Angeles attending the kick-off of the 2nd Annual Kids with Cancer Rally which raised funds for children’s cancer research.
