What caused the brief split between Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo in May? Jessica’s meddling father!
Sources close to the couple say that Joe Simpson is extremely controlling of every move his star spawn make, and wanted to take over Romo’s sports career, too!
A source told Us Magazine that Joe asked Tony to drop his agent and let Joe manage his NFL career, despite the fact that Joe has no sports agent experience.
He also offered to broker a deal for engagement and wedding coverage for Jessica and Tony, despite the fact that they aren’t engaged yet.
The tension grew to be too much for Tony and he has given Jessica an ultimatum: Dad backs off, or Tony is gone, this time for good.
Nick Lachey, Jessica’s ex-husband, has hinted that Joe Simpson had a role in the end of their marriage.
Joe defended himself to Us magazine. “It’s unfair to criticize me for what every manager does for his or her clients,” he said.
“And in this business, where people can quickly turn on you, who better than a parent to be working for his children?”
