USWeekly tells us that Tony Romo and his new lady were hanging out together a couple months before his breakup with Jessica Simpson. He even brought Natalie Smith (left) to one of Jess’ concerts (Feb. 6).
“Backstage that night, Romo would introduce her to Natalie Smith, a younger, skinnier look-alike of the singer, who, multiple sources tell Us Weekly, he had been sending “flirty texts” to for months while still dating Simpson. (Smith is the daughter of the associate athletic director at Romo’s alma mater, Eastern Illinois University.)
“We hung out for, like 10 to 15 minutes, backstage,” Smith tells Us Weekly. “She was cool and nice.”
Multiple sources tell Us that Romo was having an emotional affair with Smith months before dumping Simpson on July 9, the eve of her 29th birthday.
Romo, 29, and Smith, 22, “are are not officially dating, but they are having an intimate relationship,” a Smith source tells Us. Adds another pal of Smith, who typically dined with Romo when he’d visit his college town: “They’ve always flirted and texted each other. They had phone conversations one to two months before the breakup.”
DIRTY. Introducing the new woman to the current girlfirend. That is something even Jon Gosselin wouldn’t do. Wonder if that was the reason he left Jessica at an IHOP?
