Brace yourselves: Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez split up

Share via

The season just keeps getting worse for Mark Sanchez. Not only is the New York Jets quarterback feeling some heat for the team’s shaky start this season, he was dumped by actress Eva Longoria.

You have to hope for his sake that she doesn’t start going out with Tim Tebow now.

“Mark adores and respects Eva. It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends,” a representative for Sanchez said Tuesday.

But according to other sources, he is telling friends that she called it off before Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. The Jets lost that game, 29-26.


“Mark says he is really upset about the breakup with Eva. 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 person close to the situation told the New York Post.

“The problem was Mark is very focused on football, while Eva is a busy businesswoman. She lives in Los Angeles, is doing a lot of philanthropic and political work, and is developing a number of TV shows.”

The couple had been dating for about four months.
