NBA Divorce Trifecta?
I’m a believer in the theory that all things happen in threes. You already know my obsession with the CDT (Celebrity Death Trifecta). Now, I am curious if there will be a NBADT (NBA Divorce Trifecta)!
- Steve & Alejandra Nash
- Tony & Eva Longoria Parker
While we’re familiar with the Steve Nash story, here’s the latest on the Parkers. And, before you ask, we cannot include the impending divorce of Brent & Erin Barry in this NBADT. He’s no longer playing in the NBA.

As news broke of Eva Longoria filing for divorce from her husband of three years, Tony Parker, rumors of the basketball player’s alleged infidelity began to surface.
According to multiple entertainment news outlets, Parker was reportedly cheating on Longoria with Erin Berry, the wife of his onetime NBA teammate Brent Barry. The Berrys are reportedly in the middle of their own divorce. Longoria found hundreds of text messages exchanged between her husband and Erin, according to USWeekly.com.
Brent Barry’s father, NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry, spoke to TMZ about the rumors, saying, “I feel horrible for my son. I’m in shock. I knew [Erin] was moving out of the house soon and she was the one that filed for divorce. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back. [Brent] is going to be devastated. I can’t even imagine him going through this … the divorce was hard enough news.”
Meanwhile, Longoria is getting all the support she needs from her friends. “Eva wants everyone to know she’s devastated by the rumors of Tony’s infidelity. She loved her husband and is heartbroken about their split,” Longoria’s longtime pal and “Extra” host Mario Lopez said. “But she’s strong.”
“Extra” confirmed that Longoria found the texts exchanged between Parker and Berry. The show also reported that Longoria will no longer appear at the American Music Awards this Sunday and will spend Thanksgiving with friends.
On Wednesday, Longoria and Parker released nearly identical statements confirming the split. The “Desperate Housewives” star tweeted, “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness.”
