Did Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez break up because the Jets suck? Contrary to reports the couple split because of the age difference and hectic schedules, TMZ claims Longoria could no longer put up with Sanchez being “crabby” over the 3-5 Jets.
A source told the website, “It is hard to maintain a relationship when one person is upset all the time.” The Jets are last place in the AFC North.
Despite Sanchez attempts to reconcile, Page Six says Sanchez is “really upset about the breakup and “tried everything he could to make [Eva] happy…. the problem was Mark is very focused on football while Eva is a busy businesswoman.”
After being first linked together this summer, Longoria confirmed the relationship last month on Chelsea Handler, even suggesting she set up the comedian with Tim Tebow. The cause of the breakup is rumored to be because of the couple’s 12-year age difference and the actress’ Hollywood lifestyle.
But a rep for New York Jets QB said, “Mark adores and respects Eva. It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends.”
Despite the breakup, Sanchez is not focusing his extra time on improving the 3-4 Jets. After the team’s overtime loss to the New England Patriots, Sanchez was spotted flirting with blondes at NYC nightclub Darby Downstairs. In the six degrees of jersey chasing, Longoria had a public divorce from NBA star Tony Park and Sanchez has been previously linked to Kate Upton, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Hayden Panettiere.
Serial celebrity dater Mark Sanchez has been linked to veteran jersey chaser Eva Longoria. The New York Jets quarterback were spotted with the actress over the holiday weekend in and around New York City and neighboring Hoboken. In Touch Magazine reports Longoria even wore a blond wind to remain incognito.
