French model Alexandra Paressant claims she met Tony Parker “at his wedding to Longoria earlier in the year, exchanged numbers, and embarked on a steamy two-month affair.”
Longoria’s representative Liza Anderson, refuted the claims in a statement: “These allegations are completely, 100 per cent false and untrue. All high-profile couples fall victim to these sorts of things in the course of their relationships.
“It appears this is not the first time this woman has used an athlete to gain public notoriety.”
But it seems the official comment from the actual people involved, Tony and Eva, was very vague and not as direct, falling short of actually denying the affair outright.
Parker said: “I love my wife. She’s the best thing in my life, and I have never been happier.”
Longoria added: “Tony has been nothing short of the perfect husband.”
I read this bit of gossip while waiting for the bus this morning. Strange coincidence: over dinner last night my wife and I were talking about NBA players of the past and their reported sexual indiscretions/exploits, eg James Worthy, Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain. (Honestly I can’t recall why this came up.)
Although neither of us had yet heard the rumors about Tony and Eva, she said: “If I were Eva Longoria, I would follow Tony around everywhere. After all, he is French.”
This isn’t the first time that Tony Parker was rumored to be cheating on Eva. You may recall when they broke up in October 2006, Tony supposedly hooked up with a former girlfriend in New York. Eva may have found comfort in the arms of Mario Lopez at that time.
All I know is, this better not interfere with Tony’s game. The Spurs desperately needed him in the lineup last night.
