In his first interview since being the target of infidelity rumors, Tony Parker tells a French newspaper, he was “shocked” to find himself wrapped up in an Internet scandal. “It’s the most bizarre episode in my life,” the 25-year old San Antonio Spurs star told Le Parisien.
Speaking to French journalist Bertrand-Regis Louvet, Parker also knocked down rumors that wife Eva Longoria is pregnant. “Not for the moment. Eva and I talk about it but with our careers it isn’t the right moment,” he says. “Right now, we’re enjoying the young married life. Because of the writers’ strike, Eva has spent a lot of the last three months with me in San Antonio. When she’s working, we see each other less.”
For the most part, Parker says 2007 was a “fabulous” year but hit a nasty bump in December when allegations that he had an affair with a French model popped up on the Web.
At the time, Longoria stood up for Parker, calling him “nothing short of the perfect husband.”
Around the same time, Parker’s attorney released a statement, saying Parker “denies ever having laid eyes on this woman, let alone having had an affair with her.”
“I’ve never hired an attorney in my life, and then all of a sudden, in two weeks, there’s three totally false charges brought out,” he said, referring to the accusations posted on online.
“What shocked me the most was the wickedness of people,” he added. “Without doubt, I’m going to have to protect myself a little more.”
