Pop singer Jessica Simpson was so devastated by her break-up with American footballer Tony Romo, she cancelled her 29th birthday celebrations on Friday (10Jul09).
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback reportedly ended their 20 month relationship on Thursday (09Jul09), the eve of Simpson's big day.
Romo hit the town with pals in Hollywood on Friday night to get over the split - but Simpson's heartache resulted in her cancelling her planned birthday party.
A source tells the New York Daily News, "Jess was too heartbroken to have a big bash. She knows that she and Tony are broken up for good. They were heading in different directions."
And the publication claims it was Simpson's determination to settle down with the sports star which caused the couple to part ways.
Another insider adds, "Jessica was ready to settle down, and Tony was not. He travels a lot for his games, and having a full-time girlfriend is a big commitment."
But despite the split, Simpson is looking on the bright side - and is embracing being a year older.
She wrote on her personal Twitter.com page, "Barbie party didn't happen, but i turned 29 and feel like i am on top of the world yelling I LOVE GETTING OLDER."
