Speaking for the first time since news emerged of his split from Eva Longoria, Tony Parker has revealed that the divorce came as no surprise.
In a statement the basketball player said: "Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately."
"I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles."
The 28-year-old also told US publication, People: "I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California."
He added: "We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private."
The couple were married in 2007 but 35-year-old Eva filed for divorce on Wednesday following reports that Tony was unfaithful with a fellow basketball player's estranged wife.
