Actress Minka Kelly and her lover of three years, Derek Jeter, have called it quits. An insider told People magazine that the split was amicable and the two remained friends.
Many celebrity couples blame the distance when it comes to breaking-up. Charming star Minka Kelly and beau Derek Jeter made no exception. Despite the fact that she was present constantly in the family box where Jeter’s family was, at the Yankee Stadium, all summer long, her schedule made it impossible for the relationship to grow. After dodging all engagement rumors for the past year, the duo announced that they have split. A representative for the actress has confirmed the rumors. A person close to the couple told People magazine that “they care about each other and it was amicable. They’re still friends.”
Kelly will be busy shooting “Charlie’s Angels”, a new series which will debut this fall on ABC.
Jeter, who has previously dated some of the hottest music and movie stars – Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Jordana Brewster, Jessica Biel, Gabrielle Union, and so on – has recovered on the filed what he lost in the slow start. His batting average is up to .299.
Kelly and Jeter are not the only couple breaking up. Lately, split rumors have been surrounding the celebrity couples. And some of them have proven to be true. Just yesterday Sara Gilbert and Allison Adler announced their split and a few hours ago, it was reported that actress Melissa Gilbert has filed for a divorce from husband Bruce Boxleitner, after a marriage that lasted 16 years. On Monday, George Michael announced he and longtime partner Kevin Goss parted ways. During his concert in Prague, he told the fans that “my love life has been more turbulent than I’ve let on. This man has brought me a lot of joy and a lot of pain.”
