An OK! magazine article claiming Tony Romo dumped Jessica Simpson after his team was eliminated from the NFL playoffs is "utterly false" and reflects a "smear campaign," her lawyers said.
Simpson's lawyers sent a letter to OK! Editor-in-Chief Sarah Ivens claiming the article is "utterly false" and "is based on nothing more than rumor, gossip and innuendo," FOXNews.com confirmed.
The attorneys also said the article reflects a "smear campaign" and has subjected Simpson to "public contempt, ridicule, aversion or disgrace," and they want OK! to "immediately publish a prominent and unambiguous" retraction.
The piece also claims Jessica's famous sister Ashlee Simpson has attempted to "distance herself" from her older sibling. The lawyers said that is also untrue.
The article — entitled "Jessica Dumped!" — appears in the Feb. 4 issue of the magazine.
