Tony Parker recently set the record straight about his impending divorce from actress Eva Longoria, reports People.  The NBA star was aware that Eva Longoria would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles, and they are trying to deal with the situation in private.  He also denied rumors that he was the first to file for divorce.  “I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California,” said Parker.

How do you break the news of a divorce to friends and family?


Cupid’s Advice:

It’s hard enough to admit to yourself that your marriage is coming to an end, which makes it even harder to admit it to other people.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Be honest: Once the divorce papers have been filed, don’t try to act like everything is honky dory with the other people in your life.  Tell those close you what’s really going on.

2. Don’t trash talk: When a relationship ends, hard feelings are almost always inevitable.  Breaking the news to your friends and family isn’t an excuse to trash your ex.  Stick to the facts.

3. Keep the details private: It’s inappropriate to reveal the sensitive details about your current or desired divorce settlement, such as the amount of your alimony payments or custody battle.  Break the news, and move on.
