Eva Longoria Files Divorce Papers

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Eva Longoria filed court papers Wednesday to divorce basketball star Tony Parker, citing irreconcilable differences. Longoria, a star of TV's "Desperate Housewives," and Parker, an NBA All-Star with the San Antonio Spurs, were married July 7, 2007. They have no children together.

In the filing, Longoria requested that her name be restored to Eva Jacqueline Longoria. She had taken Parker's name when they married.

The filing also stated the couple had a prenuptial agreement but no details were provided.

Longoria asked the court to require each side pay its own attorney fees. She also wants to receive spousal support from Parker but not pay any to him.

Longoria's spokeswoman, Liza Anderson, said the actress had no comment. Parker wasn't immediately available for comment.

Longoria, 35, did not indicate in the court filings when the couple broke up.

Parker, 28, signed a multiyear extension with the Spurs two weeks ago. At the time, the point guard from France insisted he and Longoria wanted to remain in San Antonio.

The former couple each posted a statement on their Twitter accounts addressing the divorce. "We love each other deeply and pray for each other's happiness," the posting said.

    What does this have to do with sports? She is just another greedy woman. Maybe Tony Romo will be next since he is in Texas, has #9 (since she has #9 tattoed on her), and his name is Tony as well.
