Thanks to the surprisingly large number of Friends of Unfair Park who've forwarded along this People story concerning Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson's apparent break-up, which, the mag reports, happened on Thursday -- the night before Jess turned 29. So, who says they're busted up? "A source close to the pop star," who insists Simpson's "heartbroken" but that, look, they're busy and it's more or less mutual ... so there. And by busy, they mean this: "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."
Course, Alan Peppard had 'em busted up in May 2008. So there's that. But true or not, we'll always have that Metal Skool performance. And Mexico. And that Eminem video. But will you remember where you were when you heard about the end of Romessica? I think now's a good time to read way too much into Jessica's most recent tweet: "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." Sniff.
