  • The ‘devastated’ Desperate Housewife has split from her husband, amid affair allegations

    After a week of frenzied split rumours, Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria has confirmed she’s filled for divorce from her husband of four years, US basketball star Tony Parker.


    The couple became the talk of the town just days ago after being hit by affair allegations, blasting rumours Tony had filed for divorce in a Texas court as ‘completely untrue’.

    But yesterday Eva confirmed the pair have split, with sources revealing a lawyer for the ‘devastated’ beauty has served the official papers.

    It’s thought the actress cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ on the legal documents, and is seeking spousal support.

    The star confirmed the sad split in a message to followers on Twitter, writing: ‘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.’

    And although no reason was given for the marriage break-up, rumours have already started circling.

    It’s thought Eva initiated the split after finding ‘hundreds of texts’ from another woman – reportedly Erin Barry the wife of one of Tony’s teammates, Brent Barry, and a friend of the couple – on his phone.

    The Desperate Housewives star also reportedly revealed Tony had cheated earlier on their marriage, and kept in touch with the woman on Facebook.

    Eva has pulled out of her appearance at the American Music Awards, and is said to be ‘devastated’ and ‘totally blindsided’ by the affair revelations.

    ‘She is devastated, she wants us all to know that,’ her friend and US TV host Mario Lopez reveald. ‘But she’s strong.’
