Jessica Simpson, getting a jumpstart on her 28th birthday celebration (actual birthday: July 10) during a night at the Key Club in West Hollywood with beau Tony Romo and pal Vivica A. Fox. At the club, Simpson got a treat when the NFL star belted out Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" as his old friends, Steel Panther (formerly known as Metal Skool) backed him up. (The band, who has regular gigs at the club, tossed the mic to Romo, who sang from the crowd.) And while Romo may not be known for his pipes, he isn't shy about singing. "He sings that one all the time," the club's night manager, Mark "Skip" Buccola, told us. And Romo and Simpson joined the same band onstage in January. Also in the audience: Matt Leinart, who hung in VIP with his friends. Meanwhile, before their night out in L.A., Simpson and Romo spent their holiday weekend in Destin Beach, Fla., where they hung out on the beach at the WaterColor Inn & Resort.

Vivica A. Fox wants to set the record straight when it comes to a rumored sex tape – there isn't one.
"Vivica does not have a sex tape. If I did, I would be making my own money off of it," the Kill Bill actress told PEOPLE backstage Saturday night at the taping of the inaugural BET Honors in Washington, D.C.
Reports of the tape swept the Internet earlier this month, but Fox says, "As a 43-year-old woman, I would never allow a man to put me in that position. If you see me having a love scene, it's going to be choreographed in a movie, and be fabulous."
