Tony was not blindsided when Eva filed for divorce

Washington: NBA star Tony Parker has revealed that he was not blindsided when wife Eva Longoria filed for divorce.

"Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately," a magazine quoted him as saying in a statement issued by his rep.

"I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles," he added.

Parker, 28, also dismissed a report that he went to court first.

"I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California," he said.

"We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private," he added.
