Eva Longoria files for divorce from Tony Parker [Updated]

Tony Parker and Eva Longoria are getting divorced Eva Longoria has filed for divorce from pro hoops player Tony Parker — and yes, as of Wednesday they really mean it.

The "Desperate Housewives" actress, 35, did the deed in an L.A. court, People says. A report that Parker, 28, had filed for divorce in Texas was shot down by Longoria's rep, who told TMZ on Tuesday that the San Antonio Spurs point guard didn't even have a divorce  lawyer.

[Updated, 1:50 p.m.: Longoria confirmed the news on her Twitter account, saying, "It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other's happiness."

Meanwhile, amid rumors of Parker cheating, "Extra" reported that Longoria had found text messages to and from a teammate's wife on her husband's phone. Host Mario Lopez, a Longoria friend, said the actress is "heartbroken about their split. But she's strong."]

The two were married in 2007 in an elaborate wedding at a castle in France, where Belgian-born Parker was raised. The reason for the split wasn't clear, though Us Weekly cites "multiple sources" alleging nearly a year's worth of personal text messages between Parker and a mutual female friend. Longoria was "heartbroken by the betrayal," one source told Us.

In December 2007, Parker sued X17Online for defamation -- and $20 million -- after that website alleged he'd had an affair with a French model who'd met him at his wedding. In April 2008, the site publicly apologized, saying it had been misled by the model, and that the two had never met.

At any rate, no matter who does or does not have a lawyer, TMZ says the couple did sign a prenup.

I realize Brandi's attitude was a little over the top. It turned me off. That being said. They unfairly voted her off. She can dance circles around Bristol. This makes me doubt the legitmacy of this show. I'm so disapointed!

there are other dancers on the show why not address them instead of the obvious, i notice palin's name always showing up,brandy was great maybe she does'nt have a bigger popularity base as the others. after all seems to be a popularity show anyway.

What a surprise--he's a playa.

Hmm, wonder if she ever told her Sicilian grandmother the truth.

the whole show is an joke

How does Bristol Palin fit in this story about Eva Longoria's divorce????? Viewers just stop watching DWTS the next few weeks now and Eva dear there'll be other worthier men in your life soon. You're pretty and smart girl...so don't get mad, get everything darling!

Hey all -- Christie D'Zurilla here from the blog. Sorry about the weird direction of comments ... somehow comments related to another post (http://lat.ms/a1uqMp) are showing up here. Wish I could move them, but alas, I cannot.
