Erin Barry is denying that she ever had an affair with Tony Parker ... after weeks of being called the woman who came between the basketball star and his wife of three years, Eva Longoria.
Barry, the ex-wife of NBA player Brent Barry, wrote the following on her website:
- â€œI did not have an affair with Tony Parker, nor did I â€˜pursueâ€™ Tony Parker. Unfortunately, because our divorces are occurring at the same time, great speculation has been cast on our friendship. My friendship with Tony Parker had nothing to do with the end of my marriage (which is painful enough without this added drama), and to assume that we had an affair is naive, ridiculous, and completely misguided.
Every day I dedicate myself to being a good person and the best Mom that I can possibly be for my two beautiful children. I pride myself on being a Mom first, an advocate for abused children second, and a law student third. Those are the things that are of the utmost importance to me.â€
Soon after reports surfaced that Parker was allegedly sexting the wife of a teammate, Sports Illustrated writer Bryan Graham tweeted the following: "Have it on good authority from entertainment sources that 'former teammate' in Tony Parker-Eva Longoria affair is Brent Barry."
Not until now has Erin Barry addressed the rumors. As for Longoria and Parker, both have filed divorce papers.
