After nearly three years with the lovely Minka Kelly, Derek Jeter has finally struck out. Sorry, but I’m contractually obligated to use bad baseball puns when referencing their relationship. My hands are tied here. The Daily Mail says:
The 31-year-old actress and 37-year-old baseball star began dating in May 2008 and were [rumored] to have become engaged.
But a representative for Minka has confirmed that the couple have split.
A source [said]: ‘They care about each other and it was amicable. They’re still friends.’
I bet she broke up with him because the last name “Jeter” is just awful. You don’t wanna be saddled with that for the rest of your life. It sounds like a word my stroke-riddled grandmother made up. Or maybe like a type of bug that would get in your hair or ears if you didn’t wash carefully enough.
