The NFL’s biggest power couple seem to be no more, as People magazine reports that Cowboys QB Tony Romo and pop star Jessica Simpson have officially broken off their relationship. The breakup took place sadly enough on the night before Jessica’s 29th birthday.
“She is heartbroken,” said the source to the magazine. “She loves Tony. But it’s been difficult lately. He’s busy with his career and she’s getting ready to shoot her show (The Price of Beauty). They decided to part ways.”
There’s was plenty of controversy about Simpson in her relationship with Romo over the past two seasons. The countless shots of her in the suites wearing Romo’s pink #9 jersey gave fans around the nation even more reason to dislike the Cowboys.
Then who could ever forget the famous Cabo vacation fiasco that took place the week before the Cowboys lost to the Giants in the NFC Divisional playoffs in Dallas two seasons ago? Many felt that Simpson was a distraction to Romo, and now we shall see if the breakup remains, and if Romo plays better with the blonde bomber out of the picture.
“They were good together for along time,” says the source. “But I guess it wasn’t meant to be.”
