Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker is reportedly on the verge of filing for divorce from her jock husband Tony Parker.
A source told US Wednesday that the celebrity marriage is crumbling under the weight of a relationship the San Antonio Spurs guard has been carrying on with a a mutual female friend of the couple’s, backed up by hundreds of text messages between the pair over the past year.
“Eva is heartbroken by the betrayal,” one source told the magazine, while another added, “Once the trust was lost, the marriage was over — Eva truly thought she was going to grow old with Tony and have children with him — she’s inconsolable.”
On Tuesday, People published a similar report, claiming that Eva – who a source said was “totally and completely blindsided” by Tony’s alleged cheating – could file divorce papers as early as Wednesday.
After one news outlet Tuesday claimed that it was Tony who was secretly filing for divorce, the actress’ rep Liza Anderson debunked the claim, telling X17 that the story was “100 percent false,” leading to the story being retracted.
The couple, who married in 2007, first got together after they were introduced following a Spurs game in 2004. They were seen looking happy together on October 23 in Los Angeles attending a benefit for children’s cancer research.
