Tony Romo's gated community posts a "red alert" sign.
Three weeks after the Dallas Cowboys quarterback famously dumped Simpson the day before her 29th birthday—causing her to cancel her Barbie-themed birthday party—this sign appeared at the entrance of Romo's gated community: Read: Tony Romo Dumps Jessica Simpson
"RED ALERT!!! TONY ROMO HAS MADE SOME CHANGES TO HIS LIST OF PEOPLE ALLOWED IN....JESSICA IS NO LONGER ON THE LIST AND NOT APPROVED FOR ACCESS."
Apparently, Romo had instructed security to keep Simpson out of his gated community. Whether or not he ordered the sign to be put up hasn't been determined, but either way, that's a pretty public slap-in-the-face move. "Red Alert"? It's not like Jessica is some biochemical plague or anything. A tactful internal memo would have done just fine. Read: Breakups To Make You Laugh and... Cringe
Romo shouldn't have any worries, however, the singer has made it clear she won't be hanging around any longer. According to an Us Weekly source, Simpson recently dished out $19,000 to ship 37 boxes of her stuff from Dallas to L.A. overnight.
While a friend of Romo's said this fallout in the relationship was "a long time coming." Others were caught off-guard. "I thought they would…tie the knot," said teammate Terrell Owens to Ryan Seacrest.
