*TMZ is reporting that the Eva Longoria Parker divorce rumor from this morning is now fact.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Superior Court has confirmed that the “Desperate Housewives” star filed a petition for divorce from NBA husband Tony Parker, putting an end to speculation her marriage is in trouble, the website reports.
Internet buzz had suggested the athlete filed a divorce petition in Bexar County Courthouse in Texas. TMZ.com claimed the case had been filed and sealed by a family law judge, but Longoria Parker’s publicist immediately shot down the story, insisting the reports were “absolutely false.”
But now, Longoria Parker has moved to end the three-year marriage herself – as legal documents were filed in Los Angeles Superior Court early today (Nov 17), according to the website.
The actress cites “irreconcilable differences” for the dissolution of the union and is seeking spousal support from the San Antonio Spurs star. She’s also seeking to drop her married name and revert back to just Eva Longoria.
Longoria Parker’s publicist now says, “We are not commenting at this time.”
The estranged couple married in France in 2007.
