Erin Barry was Tony Parker's sexting partner, but he denies sex with Spurs teammate's wife
The other woman in Tony Parker's life has been revealed as Erin Barry, the wife of Parker's former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry. That has to make team reunions a little awkward.
Multiple sources say Erin and Tony carried on a graphic textual relationship for about a year, but those are the only details anyone can agree upon. OK! says Brent, who was Parker's teammate from 2004 to 2008, filed for divorce in reaction to the news his wife had been less-than faithful, citing a local San Antonio TV station report, but TMZ says the couple have been estranged for awhile now.
"I feel horrible for my son. I'm in shock," Brent's dad Rick Barry told TMZ. "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."
The good news for Brent and Eva, we guess, is that Tony denies ever consummating the relationship with Erin: "They knew each other, sent each other messages," a source told People. "It was flirtatious, but he never did anything with her." It doesn't matter for Eva, who discussed divorce with Parker beforehand but surprised him with this week's filing.
"Eva was hurt and she wanted a little revenge," a source told RadarOnline. "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."
It's hard to say how this can be a surprise, since TMZ says the filing was designed to coincide with Eva's interview with Us Weekly. She must have some new movie coming out or something.
