Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson were one of the biggest “it” couples more than a decade ago. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback and the pop star were a dream match for celebrity gossipers.
The relationship, which began in 2007, didn’t last. Romo broke up with Simpson in July of 2009.
Simpson has now revealed the details of the breakup in her biography, Open Book. She revealed that Romo dumped her with an email.
The breakup was reportedly caused by John Mayer, who was interested in Simpson. Romo reportedly found out about a meeting between Simpson and Mayer and broke up with her.
Simpson says that Romo eventually realized that she was telling the truth about Mayer, but there was no reconciling.
Romo went on to marry Candice Crawford, a former Miss USA contestant and TV journalist. The couple was married in 2011 and they now have three children together.
