Brent filed for divorce from his wife on October 29, 2010, citing "irreconcilable differences." The divorce was finalized on January 5, 2011, with joint custody of the children.

Erin later denied the rumors through a statement. She wrote:

"Unfortunately, because our divorces are occurring at the same time, great speculation has been cast on our friendship. My friendship with Tony Parker had nothing to do with the end of my marriage (which is painful enough without this added drama), and to assume that we had an affair is naïve, ridiculous, and completely misguided. Every day I dedicate myself to being a good person and the best Mom that I can possibly be for my two beautiful children," she continued. A first-year law student and a longtime advocate for abused and disadvantaged children. I have spent my adult life fighting for children who have been victimized," she wrote, "so forgive me for not caring when someone tells me that my name is being dragged through the mud."

Barry is currently single after his divorce with Erin.
