Tony Parker: "Sexting" but No Sex with Erin Barry

Tony Parker is denying that he had a sexual relationship with the wife of his San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry. However, he is not denying exchanging racy text messages with her.

TMZ is reporting that "sources connected with Tony" say Parker did indeed have a "sexting relationship" with Erin Barry, but that it ended months ago. The sources insist, "They never had a physical relationship."

Parker and his actress wife Eva Longoria filed for divorce on Wednesday.

There is also disagreement on the timing of the divorce filing. Parker's people tell TMZ the filing was planned for a while. They say Longoria not only knew well in advance that she was filing, it was timed to coincide with an interview and cover story for Us Weekly magazine.

However, Longoria's people say that's not true, telling TMZ, "Eva and Tony were still talking about working out the marriage up until the morning she filed."

As for the different stories, Parker's side said, "She was into the whole PR thing.  He wasn't."
