This week’s latest name in celebrity break-ups is Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly. I know, I know, should we really be surprised yet another Hollywood relationship has ended?
After three years of dating, Minka’s rep has confirmed the break-up to People Magazine with the following statement;
“They care about each other and it was amicable. But they remain friends. They still really care for each other.” LA Times reported another statement reaffirming things ended on a good note, “The split was amicable.”
The sudden split wasn’t exactly predictable for the famously private couple given Minka’s supportive appearance on HBO’s recent special “Derek Jeter 3K”, documenting Jeter’s journey to achieving 3,000 hits.
Although Minka had more modest roots, previously dating actors such as Chris Evans and Donald Faison; Jeter however has been tabloid fodder since his first days as a Yankee in 1996 with romantic links to big names such as Mariah Carey, Vanessa Minnillo, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel.
Minka is currently away filming episodes for the Charlie’s Angel’s TV remake which premieres September 22nd on ABC while Jeter is well on his way to having another home run season with the Yankees.
The count down begins before Derek Jeter nabs yet another A-list celebrity.
Minka Kelly was named Esquire Magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2010 – something tells us she won’t have much trouble moving on either.
