The drama continues in the Eva Longoria-Tony Parker divorce.

UK tabloid The Sun reported Monday that 19-year-old British model Sophia Egeler received racy text messages from Parker, including a half-naked photo.

Parker has not made any public statements about the allegations.

He did speak publicly about the divorce situation just hours after the news of his impending divorce became public, before the Spurs' game against the Chicago Bulls.

"This is a difficult time right now for me and Eva. Everything else is our private life," the San Antonio Spurs guard said.
 
When asked about the other woman involved, Parker said: "Everything else is our private life. That's my private life."
 
He said one last thing before the Spurs' media representatives concluded the session:
 
"I'm getting great support from teammates and coaches," he said. "Right now, I just want to concentrate 100 percent on winning basketball games with the Spurs."
 
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich offered his support on behalf of the team.

"This is a difficult situation for everyone, obviously. Eva and Tony are somebody we love and care about," he said. "We wish them the best as they go through this."
