Carrie Underwood has slammed reports that she is dating Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
"I have read some of the most ridiculous things about that," the country singer told the newspaper.
"The first time I ever met him was on Christmas, right there on the field. Everybody was like, 'Ooh, they are together.' And then I was blamed for Dallas not winning that game. . . . He is a very nice guy and I've talked to him a few times, but we are very much not together."
An Illinois newspaper had originally reported that Tony admitted the two were dating and Carrie struck back saying, "That was one person from one local newspaper that said that, so whether or not . . ."
"I've read 'sources said' we met on Thanksgiving. I had no clue who he was at that time. He is probably getting a little tired of that one (the false rumor he was dating Jessica Simpson) and now he's probably tired of this one, as I am."
