It seems Eva was seeking revenge when she decided to file the divorce papers.
After Eva discovered that Tony had been exchanging sexual texts with Erin Barry, the wife of his former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry, she was devastated.
“But Eva was hurt and she wanted a little revenge,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “So she blindsided Tony with the divorce filing.
“They were working out the details about who was going to file and when. They didn’t want it to become a messy divorce. Then Eva got a little revenge and didn’t tell Tony she was filing and dropped the papers on him, catching him off balance for the media blitz.”
As for the messages, they were anything but “innocent”. The texts were flirtatious and sexual and “crossed the line,” a source close to the situation revealed.
“Look, any wife is going to be upset with what Tony did, but he swears the relationship with Erin stopped there and they never had sex,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“And Parker also says the text messages ended months ago.”
However, the couple was planning to divorce weeks ago. “They were discussing how to proceed for a while,” the source said. “Suddenly, Eva not only filed the papers but then went public with Tony’s relationship with Erin. He was surprised, to say the least.”
Tony initially wanted to file the papers in Texas, which explains why rumors about this appeared in the media on Monday. However, this plan changed.
“He held off,” the source said. “It had been discussed but then abandoned. Next thing he knew she surprised him by filing on Wednesday.
“Eva is furious that Tony started a relationship with a woman she knew, a woman they went out with as couple friends. She felt betrayed by Tony and this is how she got a small measure of revenge.”
