People: Tony Romo dumped Jessica Simpson the day before her b-day

Oh, no. My girl’s in trouble, y’all! People Magazine is reporting that Tony Romo totally dumped Jessica Simpson – the night before her 29th birthday. What a tool. He couldn’t have waited until the day after birthday? No, he had to ruin my girl’s birthday. Poor Jessica. People also has Tony not mourning the death of a perfectly good relationship – Romo was spotted having a “fun time” with lots of girls on the night of Jessica’s birthday. I guess I was wrong – I thought Tony really loved Jessica. Turns out he’s just a douche who dumps girls before their birthdays. Jerk!

Tony Romo broke up with Jessica Simpson on Thursday, the night before her 29th birthday, a source close to the pop star tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“She is heartbroken,” says the source. “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.”

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback fueled breakup rumors when he showed up with about 14 friends at the Hollywood hotspot MyHouse on Friday night without the birthday girl, a source tells PEOPLE.

“He had quite a few girls stop by his dance floor table,” says an onlooker. “Romo was sipping Grey Goose and having a fun time with the boys.”

Simpson’s rep had no comment. Romo’s rep could not be reached for comment.

Simpson had planned to throw a Barbie and Ken-themed party for her birthday, but it fell through, according to a message she wrote on her Twitter page Saturday. “Barbie party didn’t happen, but I turned 29 and feel like I am on top of the world yelling I LOVE GETTING OLDER!” she wrote.

Although her heart might be broken, Simpson seems to remain hopeful about love. On Sunday, she Tweeted, “Everyone needs to know that hope floats … grab the strings and pull it back to you.” Three hours later, she wrote, “Falling asleep with my mom and the dogs. Please lord give all of my beautiful fans, friends, enemies, and family rest. Bring all of us peace.”

[From People]

They decided to split because their dual careers were so demanding? Seriously? He’s a football player who doesn’t work half the year, and she was last seen working at a chili cook-off. Let’s not make stuff up as we go along.

Why does this news upset me so much? Probably because I have sympathy for Jessica. She’s so harmless. Hurting her is like punching a kitten. Poor Jess.

    Can you blame Romo? What man doesnt dream of a woman who falls asleep with her dogs and her Mom?

  2. HEB says:

    Yeah I often feel bad for Jessica, she’s getting older and her life’s just getting worse and worse.

    Shoulda stayed with Nick, dummy!

  3. Katt says:

    How about Nick and Jessica rekindle their relationship and get lost into obscurity? Hah? Hah? Sounds like a plan. ;D

  4. ronnie says:

    She’s better off without that tool.

  5. Boom says:

    I think she’s better off going out with her dad, atleast he’ll be faithful. – just kidding, good luck Jess – maybe she’d be beter picking some regular guy, i hear there’s tons of ‘em at the chilli cook -off

  6. diddy says:

    he is a douche for dumping her on her birthday weekend

  7. ms truth says:

    she should have stayed married to nick. listening to family tell her she could do better has left her alone. now she wants to have kids and no man is willing to stay with her. she has no viable career and beauty fades (quickly). hindsight is 20/20

  8. OXA says:

    She is too needy and has been desperate to get engaged since they first started dating. Didn’t they break up before over her blabbing to the press about their relationship.

  9. sarcra says:

    Well, Nick’s single now, too. Maybe we will see a reunion?

  10. fizXgirl314 says:

    awwww really? that sucks… she seems sweet.. :(

  11. Cinderella says:

    I am sad for her. Sure she did Nick dirty, but it seems like she’s been trying to find a stable relationship since, and Tony was the closest thing to it. I thought they were a match.

    Guys suck when they break up with you before your birthday or Valentine’s Day. Those seem to be popular dumping days.

  12. fizXgirl314 says:

    well maybe if she stopped wearing stripper heels, men would take her more seriously :/

  13. Anastasia says:

    What comes round, goes round. I’ll say it too: shoulda stayed with Nick.

    It was such a BIG huge stinkin’ deal that she was a virgin when she got married, but then she quickly got divorced and has had several guys since then. I don’t get that at all.

  14. TinaWithPom says:

    First Vanessa Minnillo, now Jessica Simpson. Who’s next? Jennifer Love Hewitt?

    Unrelated to the story, since Romo didn’t say it, but there’s something about the sentence “We were good together for a long time” that makes me cringe every time I hear a guy say it about deciding to break up with a long-term girlfriend.

    Jessica’s 3 years with Romo is small potatoes compared to some other stories I’ve heard from coworkers, friends, and non-celebrities. Some of these women got broken up with after years of living with their boyfriends, some after having bought a house or apartment together. So, I guess, beware.

    My sympathies to Jessica, but I do think she was acting too needy and was talking too much to the press about things that should have been kept private.

    As for Romo, yep, he’s an @$$hole.

  15. Annie says:

    Meh. Jessica was a little too dumb for Nick.

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think of him as some kind of Einstein, but I think it’s safe to say that Ms. Simpson is as bright as a burntout bulb.

    That being said, she IS 100% harmless and seems to be a pretty nice person. Just not all that bright.

  16. Renee says:

    I love Jessica Simpson shoes! But Jessica’s shoes are too small for her…her toes are hanging off the edge.

    I feel bad for her. I want her to find a lasting relationship.

  17. BellaLuna says:

    I feel the same way. Everything tells me I shouldnt like her because she really has no talent, but for some reason I just do. I feel really bad for her now that her dreams of marrying Tony have been dashed. I was rooting for her.

  18. Iggles says:


    This is great news.

    I know it’s harsh, but truth is truth! She’s an airhead who drags the men she dates down. She should have stayed with Nick!

  19. fizXgirl314 says:

    a ken and barbie themed birthday? omfg… ok she’s sweet and all and i don’t wish ill upon her… except that i wanna punch her inthe stupid face… even my neice has outgrown barbie and she’s only 14…. what a friggin dumb shit…. *eyeroll*… i feel sorry for the guy for having to pu up with that for 3 years because if she’s having a barbie and ken themed 29th birthday what sorts of stupid shiznit is she putting people through on a daily basis? i shudder to think…

  20. KelBear says:

    Kaiser your so right…..Hurting Jessica is like punching a cat. She is harmless.

  21. Ally says:

    The day-before-birthday thing would be awful… unless you were planning to subject your man to a “Barbie and Ken” birthday party. Holy objectification!

    I don’t know what straight man, let alone a guy who has to face ribbing in the locker room and from sports reporters, wouldn’t run screaming!

    Maybe he just broke up with her to avoid the party, and they’ll get back together once the date is safely past.

  22. ms truth says:

    omg i totally forgot about the barbie and ken party. yes he might have broken up with her b/c he had enough of the childish ways. my goodness 29 means you can leave the lil girl theme parties to the kids. jess needed this reality check in the worst way.

  23. wow says:

    Nah, I don’t see her life and getting worse and worse. To me, its improving. She just got rid of 200-something punds (Romo). Now if she can get rid of her pervy-dad, she’d be good to go. ;-)

  24. Patrice says:

    “They decided to split because their dual careers were so demanding? Seriously? He’s a football player who doesn’t work half the year, and she was last seen working at a chili cook-off. Let’s not make stuff up as we go along.”

    Celebitchy, you’re on your A-game today! That is hilarious!!

  25. yadira says:

    He wasn’t that good looking anyway, get yourself a real man jess!

    I was thinking of a reunion too between her and Nick ;)

  26. Anna says:

    her dad is so proud of her double d’s – does he think that’s all a man is interested in – maybe him. She’s talentless, pretty, and dumb. Tired of her.

  27. Tazina says:

    She really blew it when she dumped Nick. He was faithful and devoted to her. So she thought Tony was an improvement? I don’t think Nick would be interested in hooking up with her again.

  28. NJMDPS says:

    I’m not a fan of Jessica..truly I have no opinion of the girl. However, he is a total JERK for doing this to her. I hope she gets over it fast and moves on. As for him, I hope he has a lousy season. Break a leg, Tony!

  29. xen says:

    IF this is true she has nothing to worry about, she was too cute for him anyway. she can always do better than that

  30. Meow Mix says:

    “Barbie party didn’t happen, but I turned 29 and feel like I am on top of the world yelling I LOVE GETTING OLDER!” she wrote.

    Ummmm. Except Barbie never gets older. I’m no psychologist but doesn’t take much to figure what is going on here.
    She sounds like she has serious issues with growing older and doesn’t want to grow up because of it.
    And her Dad seems like a real perv.

  31. Ned says:

    Jessica is one of the few really nice people in Hollywood.

    There are very few of those who are genuinely nice, so I am rooting for her.

    and after all that time together, I thought they were going to make it.

    Not to mention that it wouldn’t kill him to wait a couple of days.

    As for Nick- the guy treated her (and apparently other women as well) like crap.
    He was jealous of her success and at the same time milked every bit of it.

    The last thing she needs is a guy who dissed her and other ex girlfriends of his.

  32. mel says:

    Pretty low Romo to break up with your girl right before her birthday. But hey what time is a good time to kick someone to the curb.

    Stayy single Jessica.

  33. Kelly says:

    Who cares if he broke up with her b4 her birthday or after? If he’s an a hole, he’s not one just because he did it the day b4 her bday. He probably couldn’t wait much longer to get the needy girl off his back.

  34. Badkrma says:

    Too bad she can’t find her inner strength and move on, believe in herself and come back to movies… enough with the tabloid crap…pick yourself up pls…

  35. Ggirl says:

    It is better he ended things now if he wasn’t going to marry her. He has strung her along for too long anyway. she deserves better.

  36. lola says:

    Nick and jessica need to just get back together and have babies.

    Tony was probably too stressed with the birthday gift knowing she is wanting one thing only an engangement ring

  37. t says:

    Jessica doesn’t strike me as a harmless kitten. She seems like a parasite. I’m glad he didn’t wait until after her birthday. Maybe he’s not a jerk. Maybe he is just honest about wanting out.

    Or maybe he’s been trying to dump her for a long time and the Simpsons kept begging him to wait until the timing was more beneficial to them. “wait until fatgate dies down” or “wait until after a Valentine’s Day photo-op” or “wait until the Rascal Flatts tour ends-her stage banter is all about you”. They got him to take her to the sister’s wedding that way when he broke up with her last year.

    Maybe Romo saw this at popcrunch, “Jessica Simpson will launch her second fragrance, Fancy Love, in July….the new perfume was reportedly inspired by boyfriend Tony Romo” and decided he better get out right now before he got stuck helping her launch her perfume.

    Maybe Romo’s the harmless kitten who got tired of the Simpsons taking advantage of him to promote Jessica.

  38. Ana says:

    So he wouldn’t have to buy her a present!

  39. Lindsay says:

    Being mean to JSimp is really pretty bully-ish. I mean, really, it is.

    She never talks shit about anyone and just sort of goes along and tries to do her thing. She’s not at all like Lohan and on the twitter and drugs party train. I always think that picking on her really says more about the commenter than her. Some people have nothing but venom for every person posted about. It’s vicious most of the time.

  40. Nebraska says:

    In order to have a healthy relationship, Jess has to limit her relationship with her father who seems to meddle in her affairs. I can see Steve O being a great match!

  41. dirty martini says:

    ok People. Seriously. A 29th birthday party themed with Barbie & Ken.

    Of course he broke up with her before the party. How on god’s green earth could he NOT? SHe made him do it~! It’s like she put a gun to his head!

    Go back and re read this article. SHe was having a Barbie and Ken themed birthday party.

    Like he could possibly deal with that $h1T and then go to camp with Da-Boys with that sash and tiara.

    Jeez, people, she was cutting his cajones off.

    You cannot possibly blame him for breaking up with her before that went down.

    You cannot.

  42. j. ferber says:

    I hope Romo has nothing but back luck after his disgraceful treatment of Simpson. Someone needs to slap his face. Wishy-washy is one thing, but he is downright cruel. He just wasted three years of Simpson’s life with no intention of marrying her. And then out partying with other girls on her birthday night? Shameless, dumb jock. And he’s looking fat, too.

  43. Orangejulius says:

    Huh? You just got dumped and you’re on top of the world? Please.

  44. cd says:

    I feel for this girl. Not just because Tony’s seems like a d-bag for dumping her before her birthday (imo, don’t let the door hit you on the way out, buddy), but because she doesn’t seem to have her sh** together enough to avoid dating guys like this. And I mean, a Barbie-themed birthday? Really, Jessica? Being an infantile woman with a curvy body will usually only attract a certain kind of man if you don’t have the smarts and brains, and strong personality to complement it all. A man won’t dump you like that if there’s something worthwhile holding onto (eventually the sex and neediness and beauty isn’t enough). Men aren’t so hard to figure out. Don’t know many quality men that like doll-like, infantile women and she certainly won’t be taken seriously if she keeps up this cutesy routine. Oy, Jessica! Get it together, grow up and smarten up!! Focus on becoming an interesting person.

  45. Ned says:

    cd, there are enough divas in Hollywwod who are full of sh!t.

    Jessica doesn’t need to be anything but herself, nor does she need to play games with men in order to be more interesting.

    She is a bit innocent, and a “good girl” especially when compared to her stoned and trashy peers.

    She doesn’t need to “be interesting” to anyone.
    She seemed to have attracted enough attention without drugs, BS and destructive conduct.

    Let her be.

  46. Mary Jones says:

    Good for him. She is annoying as sh** he probably finally got sick of her. Now she can go back to sleeping with her father. The whole family is nasty, nasty, nasty.

  47. jaudicemachine says:

    I’m not a Jessica fan by any stretch of the imagination. . . but the day before her birthday?! Cold, man.

  48. c says:

    Maybe this is the time for life lessons, courtesy of Eleanor Roosevelt, since her books always seem to have a lot of common sense:
    “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
    Eleanor Roosevelt, ‘This Is My Story,’ 1937
    “People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.”

  49. MeowMeow says:

    Not the smoothest move by Romo. But as a Cowboys fan and Dallas native, I am glad he dumped that blonde idiot. He needs to find someone who’s not a celebrity and has a brain. I heart Tony. I think he’s a really decent guy, actually.

  50. Ursula says:

    Jessica is not the sharpest tool in the best. I always have a low opinion for any one who dates. She is too dumb. No bets about this relationship ending. She is harmless though. But too shallow for her own good. Imagine your mates teasing you about being Kenny. Tony must have balked at that.

  51. jen says:

    why is everyone getting all flustered about the barbie and ken themed party? since its her birthday, she can celebrate it however she wants
    there are weirder things out there – trailer trash weddings (heidi and seal), but if thats how they have fun, who are we to judge? life is too short to live by society’s norms ..

  52. maritza says:

    Well now that Nick is alone they should try again. They were such a nice couple.

  53. cd says:

    Ned, that’s what I meant. Be herself and be interesting and/or interested about things that are of interest to her, not a boyfriend. Didn’t mean play games at all. I mean just being yourself and self-confident enough without having to manipulate, or pretend to into things that she’s not, etc. And, innocent. Meh. Ok.

  54. Recondite says:

    She is not harmless. She and her handlers are responsible for the contribution to the intellectual dumbing-down of this country. Style over substance, appearance over intellect, etc.

    If you think this is “harmless” then the road ahead is longer than you think.

  55. Recondite says:

    Remember, this person got a TV deal for how she looked then proceeded to state how she thought Chicken of the Sea tuna was CHICKEN….

  56. CB Rawks says:

    I absolutely hate that godawful pursed-lip smirk he always has! It just twangs my last nerve and I want to slap it off his face. It’s not a smile, you stupid douche! Just stop it!
    Phew. Sorry guys. :D Anyways, Jessica probably wouldn’t want a bunch of kidlets strolling around with lemonsuckmouth, so she’s better off. ;)

  57. San says:

    t, I agree with you. I think Jessica and her handlers have been stringing Tony along for each new event and he just got tired of it.
    Why should Tony stay with her when he does not want to be with her any more. He didn’t need to fake through that relationship. He is done with her and should move on.

  58. lindsey says:

    karma is a b*t*h…jessica dumped nick a day before thanksgiving and now tony dumps her a day before her birthday, some of you are calling tony an a-hole for doing that but she did the same to nick!…thats pretty dam low and im glad she got a taste of her own medicine..serves her right…

    tony and nick are too good for her anyway move on guys, their is far way smarter, beautifull, talented, honest woman with minds of their own and who are independent and they dont let daddy run their lives out…jessica is the kind of girl who guys f–k and have a god time she isnt the kind you bring home to mom and dad and start a family with shes a cheater and a wh*ore.

  59. lindsey says:

    i misspelled some words but you get my point right?

  60. Eva says:

    Lindsay said jessica never talks bad about anybody..HAHA.
    She was feuding with lohan a while back, the simpson girls made fun of britney (i say their jealous of her career cause God knows they cant sell 83+million albums put together) and jessica talked bad about vanessa minnillo, and she also was nasty to carrie underwood. yea-yeah carrie said tony called her big f–ken deal they were friends jessica was insecure with that comment and knew it was true thats why she got defensive mocking carrie on live radio..its okay jessica we all know who the better blond is we dont blame you for being jealous and threatened by the beautiufull, talented, successfull, ex girlfriend and not to mention jess was entering carrie domain country music and we all know she dominates the country charts…boo-hoo jessica no wonder you hate carrie most jealous and insecure chicks hate the beautifull and talented especially if your boyfriend was calling that has to hurt when your threatened…hmm wonder what he wanted??
    FYI- jessica is not innocent and she is not nice she has a catty rude side to her and she f–ked nick over, shes nasty and if her career has failed and her lovelife has failed thats called karma and it can come back and bite you on the ass!!

  61. TonyRulez says:

    when i think of jessica i think = failure at everything, daddy’s little girl who will never make her own decisions without her daddy, desperate for the perfect relationship and will do anything for the man as long as he stays with her even if that means begging, no self respect, no dignity, no self esteem, caters to the man hand and foot, loses who she is without a man because men define her, sad without a baby, regrets leaving nick, dum as a rock, joke to the whole music/movie industry, looks are fading shes not as cute as she was in her early days back in her newlywed days, washed up, used and abused, whore, needy and clingy pathetic,spoiled,high maintenanced,catty, insecure, jealous,envious immature person…she is not a woman shes a 29 yr old girl fantasizing about staying young, “ken and barbie” themed party need i say more.

  62. Selvol says:

    Jessica, Give me a Call.


  63. Ne1a says:

    So glad Tony dumped her,
    What the heck Barbie and Ken party. That’s very embarrassing.
    Yeah I remember Jessica being mean to other performers. Karma right back at her.

  64. divakym says:

    C’mon guys who at age 29 throws a Barbie & Ken b-day party? She is the definition of “DUMB BLONDE”. What guy do you know is going to invite their friends to his girlfriends 29th Barbie Party do you know the abuse he would have had to go through????

    I say good riddens Tony go focus on this season and leave her no good karma having butt alone. Am I the only one who realized that everytime she was at a game he did not play well.


  65. Snoopchew says:

    Tony, give her back the speedboat.

  66. Kristen says:

    It’s pretty pathetic that 99.9% of the negative comments are from females. This is the reason I’m a female with mostly guy friends. You bitches need to get over yourselves and stop being catty towards women you think are more beautiful than you are, can you say JEALOUSY?

    Anyways, my heart and sympathy goes out to Jessica. Being dumped by douche bag men is never fun. :(
