Simpson, who had said it last year that she had the same dreams as every normal person to make records, babies and hopefully get married soon, had been dumped by Romo the night before her 29th birthday.
“It was a long time coming, he hasn't really been into her and the relationship for a while, but stayed together because he didn't want to look like a jerk for not having a better reason to break it off," Fox News quoted a source as saying. “And she's trying to save face by saying that it's because of their busy schedules," the source said.
Another inside source said that the singer's manager/father Joe Simpson's meddling ways most likely took its toll on the relationship, which is the reason why they split the first time 14 months ago. It is said that Joe promised that he'd take a step back when the couple reunited, but he was still too involved in his daughter's private life.
“At one point Joe was even giving Tony football advice which doesn't go down well," the insider said. “Tony was a football superstar before he got mixed up in Hollywood, this move will be probably be good at least for his career," the insider added.
