Tony Parker Speaks Out On Split With Eva Longoria: "I've Taken Refuge In Basketball"

At least he's keeping busy.

Two months after gorgeous wife Eva Longoria filed for divorce from Tony Parker, who allegedly cheated on the actress with a teammate’s wife, he’s opening up about the pending divorce … And how he's taken comfort in basketball.

Parker tells France's Le Parisien newspaper in his first interview since the split:

    "The most important thing is to stay strong mentally, even if these are very difficult times. I've take refuge in basketball because that's what I've done best since my youth. You have to know how to keep things in perspective. I am, first of all, a basketball player. I've done this for so very long … For me, it's been essential to be successful on the court."

Parker also reveals his San Antonio Spurs teammates are standing by him, along with his family, and are offering their support though this difficult time.

The NBA star reveals:

    "I appreciate the support of [my] teammates, coaches and San Antonio. My whole family has been around me through this."

Parker and Longoria were last photographed together at an amicable lunch in early December, but so far it looks like the divorce is still on. We're confident the Desperate Housewives star, who currently owns the title as the only woman to be ranked #1 on Maxim's Hot 100 list twice, won't be single for long.

A word of advice for Tony: Don't text with your teammate's wife next time!
