Eva Longoria is taken, but she's not dating Lakers star Matt Barnes. Romance rumors went around about the actress and Lakers star after they had dinner with two other pals in NYC Thursday night and reports of a "spark" between them surfaced.
But, the buzz is incorrect, says the Desperate Housewives actress. She said (via Us magazine): "First Jessica Simpson, now this," she wrote on her WhoSay page. "Once again, press gets it wrong, Matt barnes and I are not dating!"
She added: "We are doing a charity event together for Padres and Athletes vs Cancer."
Barnes on the market now, though. He announed his split from fiancee Gloria Govan just a few days prior to the rumors about his relationship with Longoria surfaced. The NBA star's statement read (via New York Daily News): "I'd like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria's relationship. We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best."
