Tony Will Take Back Jessica If Dad Will “Back Off”

Apparently rumors of cracks in the Tony Romo-Jessica Simpson foundation were true, but things have since been patched up. And Bill Zwecker of the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES seems to have located the source of the duo’s friction:

Joe Simpson Beer Helmet

Dear ol’ Dad - Joe Simpson.

Zwecker gets the story from an old college buddy of Romo’s, who says that meddling from Jessica’s pop was very perturbing to Tony:

”He did agree to go to [sister Ashlee’s] wedding — keeping his promise to Jessica,” Romo’s Eastern Illinois alum chum told me. ”But he made it super-clear that if they were to give it another go, her dad had to seriously back off.”

Why, whatever could Joe have done to almost cost his daughter her happy Romo-ance?

My source says Romo has told Jessica their renewed relationship is ”a trial thing,” dependent on Daddy Joe ”leaving them alone” and stifling his tendency to tell Romo how to run his life, career and endorsement deals.

It’s hard to believe Joe would be accused of such indecent behavior.

Yet, dealing with such annoyance is good for Tony - He’s now learned what he’ll be getting into if he ever decides to tie the knot with Jessica.

Ruin Romo Sign

In the meantime, does this Romo-rankling revelation mean that when the Cowboys come to town, we’ll be seeing a lot of Joe Simpson masks shared among the stadium spectators? Is it time for the NEW YORK POST to hold another Simpson casting session?
