NEW YORK (CBS) Eva Longoria filed for divorce on Wednesday from husband Tony Parker, and friend Mario Lopez later confirmed that the actress found hundreds of text messages from another woman on her now-estranged husband's phone.

Now, reports are speculating that the woman in question is Erin Barry, wife of former San Antonio Spurs player Brent Barry.

"Have it on good authority from entertainment sources that 'former teammate' in Tony Parker-Eva Longoria affair is Brent Barry," Sports Illustrated writer Bryan Armen Graham tweeted on Wednesday. "Don't have much else on Parker/Longoria affair. Source did mention Barry and wife are going through a divorce."

He also wrote: "Longoria said she found text messages from wife of a former teammate on Parker's phone. Source says former teammate was Barry."

Graham did not reveal his source.

Barry's father, NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry, confirmed that his son and wife are divorcing.

"I feel horrible for my son. I'm in shock," he told TMZ. "I knew [Erin] was moving out of the house soon and she was the one that filed for divorce. This is the straw that broke the camel's back."

He added, "[Brent] is going to be devastated. I can't even imagine him going through this ... the divorce was hard enough news."

A source told People magazine that Parker did send text messages to his former teammate's wife, but that their relationship didn't become physical.

"They knew each other, sent each other messages," the source said. "It was flirtatious, but he never did anything with her."

Access Hollywood's Billy Bush contacted Erin Berry for comment.

"We spoke to erin barry...Brent Barry's wife from San Antonio Spurs...she cried and said 'No comment.' #ahcom. TP was texting her," he tweeted.

"Eva wants everyone to know, she's devastated by the rumors of Tony's infidelity. She loved her husband and is heartbroken about their split," Lopez said on "Extra." "But she's strong."

Longoria broke her silence on the matter Wednesday, but did not elaborate on the infidelity allegations.

"It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce," she wrote on her Twitter page. "We love each other deeply and pray for each other's happiness."
