Mayer Pal Blasts Simpson Reports
JESSICA SIMPSON's split from TONY ROMO was not linked to her former lover JOHN MAYER, according to reports.
The couple broke up earlier this month (09Jul09), just a day before the pop star's 29th birthday, leaving Simpson devastated.
Reports suggested American football star Romo dumped the singer when he discovered she was still in touch with rocker Mayer, from whom she split in 2007.
A source told RadarOnline.com, "They (Simpson and Romo) were hanging out and he picked up her phone and she got defensive about it. Tony found messages from John and went ballistic. He dumped her right then. He walked out and that was it."
But friends of the Daughters hitmaker have hit back at the claims, insisting Romo had no reason to be jealous over any contact Mayer and Simpson had - because there is "no chance" of a reconciliation between the old flames.
A source tells Britain's OK! magazine, "Maybe they texted but there would be nothing romantic or threatening to Tony behind the message - if it happened. There is no chance of them getting back together."
