American football player TONY ROMO has slammed reports he's dating singer and actress Jessica Simpson. The rumours began when Romo confessed to having a crush on Simpson, but the Dallas Cowboys quarterback insists he's never been lucky enough to go on a date with the 26-year-old star. He says, "So I don't have to answer any more questions about this, I'm not dating Jessica Simpson, nor have I gone on a date with her." Simpson's father Joe is supporting Romo, insisting, "Jess has never met Tony. I am friends with him."
