Kenny Chesney: I Didn't Break Up Jessica Simpson & Tony Romo

Choreographed belt-buckle boogies aren't in the cards for Jessica Simpson and Kenny Chesney. They never actually hooked up.

Three weeks after Tony Romo suddenly dumped the blond bombshell the day before her 29th birthday, the rumors are a-swirlin'.

Us Weekly is reporting that the 29-year-old footballer met 22-year-old Natalie Smith way back in February and has since been sending flirty texts back and forth. Star claims the rift started when Romo saw Jess chatting it up with Chesney earlier this month.

But according to the former Mr. Renee Zellweger, that's not how it went down, and for one very important reason…

Bros before hos.

"Tony's a friend, and I wouldn't flirt with a buddy's girlfriend," Chesney told People. "If a girl and her boyfriend can't go to someone's house for a Fourth of July party and talk to the other guests without it turning into a big nightmare...then I feel really sorry for Jessica and Tony, who're both really nice people."

He also promises that Daisy Duke wasn't being flirtatious—she was being sweet. (Is there a difference?)

Between the tales of infidelities, new romances and ring-wearing, this is beginning to sound all too familiar. Because this is a slippery slope, we now ask that you click your heels and repeat, "Please don't let Jessica and Tony be the new Gosselins" three times.
