Eva Longoria’s friend Maria Lopez has spoken up about the alleged affair between Erin Barry and Longoria’s husband Tony Parker. Lopez, formerly of Saved by the Bell fame told the press that Longoria was filing for divorce after finding hundreds of texts between Parker and an unnamed woman – thought to be Erin Barry, wife of Brent Barry.
Tony Parker admits he sent text messages to Barry, stating they had a good relationship after meeting when he played for the San Antonio Spurs with her husband Brent Barry. He also stressed that it had never been anything more than platonic and no physical relationship ever developed.
Parker and Barry were team mates between 2004 and 2008.

According to people.com a source close to them said, “They knew each other, sent each other messages,” and added, “It was flirtatious, but he never did anything with her.”
