Jessica Simpson begged for ring
Tony Romo reportedly became fed up with Jessica Simpson wanting to get married, so ended their relationship earlier this month
Jessica Simpson was dumped by Tony Romo because she begged him for an engagement ring.
The singer-and-actress reportedly drove the American football star crazy by constantly talking about settling down.
Tony didn't feel ready to marry Jessica, so he decided to end their relationship on the eve of her 29th birthday earlier this month.
A source told Britain's Star magazine: "It got to the point where that's all she'd talk about. She would speak to him all the time about buying an engagement ring. Even in public.
"Jessica expected it last Christmas. Then she thought she would get one for New Year's Eve. And when by Valentine's Day it didn't happen, the tension between them became explosive.
"The night before her birthday, Tony warned her that he wasn't ready to buy a ring. They had a massive fight and Tony cut the cord for good."
Jessica is believed to have fled to her mother Tina Simpson's home in Los Angeles to mend her broken heart.
Since the break-up, Tony has been seen partying with friends at Los Angeles nightspots MyHouse and the Key Club.
It has been claimed Jessica's interfering father-and-manager Joe Simpson added to the increasing strain on their relationship.
Tony is also believed to be furious after finding text messages on Jessica's phone from her ex-boyfriend John Mayer.
