Although Tony Romo has been linked to Natalie Smith shortly after his breakup with Jessica Simson, her father insists it is all speculation.
John Smith, the associate athletic director at Romo's alma mater, Eastern Illinois University, claims that Romo is a longtime family friend.
"His breakup brought all these rumors and stories and it is not true," says the coach. "Natalie feels so bad. Just being friends with Tony has disrupted everyone [from] talking about Tony and football and are instead talking about Tony and all of this."
Smith even has a theory about the media rumors. "What is funny about all of this is that if Tony hadn't broken up with Jessica, nothing would ever have been written about him having lunch with Natalie," he adds.
Only time will tell!!!
We think she's prime rebound material!
