New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is doing awful on-and-off the field.
The football player, whose team is in a slump, is reportedly devastated that he just got the boot from “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria, the New York Post is reporting.
According to the tabloid, Longoria told Sanchez bye-bye last week right before last Sunday’s game. The two had been an item for four months.
“Mark says he is really upset about the breakup with Eva,” an anonymous source told the publication.
"He is telling friends he tried everything he could to make her happy, and to make things work between them, but they live in very different worlds.”
A few weeks back, Longoria told buddy Mario Lopez on his TV show “Extra” that she and Sanchez were “happy dating.” But she later told comedian Chelsea Handler that Sanchez was very “focused right now on football.”
“The problem was Mark is very focused on football, while Eva is a busy businesswoman,” a source told the New York Post. “She lives in Los Angeles, is doing a lot of philanthropic and political work, and is developing a number of TV shows, including the NBC dating series ‘Ready for Love.’ ”
The New York Daily News is reporting the breakup happened because the two moved in different social circles.
“She’s more ‘Hollywood’ than he is,” an insider told the Daily News. “Her people are always around, and (Mark) didn’t like that.”
Longoria has been linked to other celebrities and athletes. The star was previously dating Pénelope Cruz’s kid brother Eduardo Cruz and was also married to San Antonio Spurs basketball player Tony Parker.
Sanchez’s rep told the New York Post on Tuesday night that the main reason for the split was “more about scheduling.”
“They will remain close friends,” Sanchez’s rep added.
