Tony Parker plays for the San Antonio Spurs. He is number nine for the team. Longoria got the tattoo in tribute to her ex husband’s jersey number.
A year ago, Longoria filed for divorce from Parker after she caught the basketball player having a sexting fling with the wife of fellow Spur player Brent Barry.
Barry and his wife also filed for divorce a month after Longoria.
Parker said he did have a sexting relationship with Barry’s wife, Erin, but said nothing physical ever happened.
TV Notas said that Longoria’s new man, Penélope Cruz’s kid brother Eduardo, went with her to get the tattoo removed. The publication adds that the two visited “Dr. Tattoff,” known as the go-to person for removal of tattoos among celebrities.
The two have been an item since February of last year.
In the publication, Longoria states how talking about the breakup from the San Antonio Spurs player makes her "want to cry" but she's trying to make the transition "as gracefully as possible" and "without any drama."
She added that now she has time to "find new patterns" in life because she no longer spends her spare time watching Parker play.
Longoria also credits the women in her life with getting her through difficult times. She says she "collects people" in her life, particularly "amazing, smart, interesting women."
