Eva Longoria's estranged husband Tony Parker has spoken out for the first time since news of their shock split hit headlines on Tuesday - insisting he was aware the actress had planned to file divorce papers.
The showbiz world was stunned following reports the basketball hunk had filed for divorce at a Texas court on Tuesday. A representative for the Desperate Housewives star insisted the rumors were "100 per cent false," leaving fans puzzled as to the state of their relationship.
However, after Longoria Parker gave her lawyers the go ahead to file papers the following day, she announced that the pair had decided to go its separate ways. And her husband, who is facing claims of alleged infidelity, has broken his silence - releasing a statement to set the record straight.
He says, "Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately. I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles. I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California. We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private."
