A lawyer for NBA star Tony Parker has issued a strongly worded statement saying his client not only didn’t have an affair with French model Alexandra Paressant – but that he has never even met her.

“Tony adamantly and unconditionally denies ever having laid eyes on this woman, let alone having had an affair with her,” says the attorney, Stanton “Larry” Stein of the firm Dreier Stein & Kahan. “The allegations of the supposed affair are entirely false and fabricated.”

Stein went on to say he would “pursue all legal remedies against those making such false accusations.”

Parker, 25, who is married to Eva Longoria Parker, 32, has been dogged by rumors of infidelity that hit Internet gossip sites last week.

Both Parker and his wife earlier issued denials of an affair to PEOPLE. “I love my wife. She’s the best thing in my life, and I have never been happier,” Parker said. Longoria added: “Tony has been nothing short of the perfect husband.”
