Tabloid TV and newspapers were abuzz with any tidbit of news they could dig up on the couple. As it turned out, they dug up quite a bit and their faces adorned the covers of many tabloid magazines a few years back. People still talk about the couple and their messy breakup until this day. Very much like Brad and Jennifer, these two had controversy and rumours following them around for all their days together and afterward. Well, ending their relationship only caused the press to seek them out even more, and still today fans and millions of press junkies are still wondering about how their end actually came about.
The old rumour mill is indeed turning at full speed on this one, ladies and gents and we at The Sportster are on top of it. Here are 15 things you may not have known about their messy breakup.
Many close to the couple believe that this was one of the main reasons why the couple split, or rather what drove Romo to end the relationship. Joe Simpson is famous for being a control freak when it comes to his daughter Jessica. People can obsess over their bodies and most times it can even become a serious problem.
At the time of their relationship, many speculated if the weight gain was a problem for Tony, and some even wondered if that was the shallow reason he had left her. Yet, as it turns out, Simpson has gone on record as saying that Tony supported her immensely and was there for her, no matter what. As For Tony, he was a definitely driven football star with a colourful career to his name.
He was driven to succeed more if not equally to his partner. He still is very driven to this day, as he is an on-air analyst for CBS Sports. But rumours being what they are, many still believe that he did in fact cheat on Jessica at such times. It performed terribly on the charts and in the media and it marks the start of her bad musical publicity. It was also at this time that she tried her hand in film, but it was hard for her to find an appropriate audience in film form.
Well, in , Do You Know was released and flopped considerably and received terrible reviews. Her mad scramble to re-attain her earlier success only led further to her fall. It was only a little over a year later that her relationship with Romo ended. Many have wondered if the stress over her dimming celebrity star was having an effect on their relationship.
According to a source, his friends had taken him out for some fun before the start of training camp. Definitely not the spitting image of a united front; for her to spend her birthday without her partner was indeed telling and fans everywhere were pretty much made aware that there was definitely trouble in paradise.
It was only found out later that he had broken up with her the night before. The two were together from until and their relationship was definitely public … especially since they were the stars of their very own reality show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica on MTV. It was on that show that Simpson entered the homes of millions and was accepted into their hearts. Could it be that the star football player was actually threatened by a member of 98 Degrees?
