Although Eva Longoria and Tony Parker parted ways 5 years ago, it appears the former couple is still pretty interesting to media worldwide. The NBA star has recently opened up about their high-profile divorce and stated that it was “a difficult and painful experience” in his life.
“The exposure, I could not control. This is the world we live in today; everything is on the Internet and on social network sites. I never paid attention to what people said. Hollywood is another world, on another level.”
A Fresh Start
However, the 33-year-old star has managed to overcome his love ordeal pretty nicely. After the divorce was finalized, Parker started dating a French journalist, Axelle Francine, and the two soon got married. They have a son named Josh.
“I’m a new man. I never imagined to feel so much love in this facet of my life. I never thought I’d be so happy.”
Eva and Parker parted ways back in 2010, only 3 years after tying the knot. Even though the petition cited “irreconcilable differences”, it was later revealed that the real reason for the split was Parker’s unfaithfulness.
Heads up, Axelle Francine.
