"I was aware that she would be filing," he says in a statement issued to PEOPLE by his rep
“Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately,” he says in a statement issued by his rep. “I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles.”
Parker, 28, also denied a report – since retracted – that he went to court first.
“I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California,” he says. “We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private.”
