He's even worse than we thought! Us Weekly reports that Jessica Simpson's pimp father, Joe Simpson, brought her relationship with Tony Romo to the brink.
That we pretty much knew going in. But according to the story, Joe's actions specifically were the main source behind their split in May.
Joe Simpson asked Tony Romo to drop his agent - so he could personally take over his NFL career and $67.5 million contract with Dallas.
He even offered to "sell" his engagement and wedding to a celebrity gossip magazine should Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson get engaged.
As tension grew, the Cowboys quarterback gave the alleged singer and actress an ultimatum: Tell dad to back the hell off!
When asked for comment, Joe Simpson defended himself, saying "It's unfair to criticize me for what every manager does for his or her clients."
"In this business, where people can quickly turn on you, who better than a parent to be working for his children?"
For now, Romo and Simpson are back on, in "a talking stage." Adds the source of their relationship, "it's in a middle-of-the-road state."
