Tony Parker was not blindsided when Eva Longoria filed for divorce this week, the NBA star tells PEOPLE.

“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.
