Derek Jeter, Minka Kelly have broken up, sadly




The first couple of Tampa Bay (winter edition), Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and actress Minka Kelly, have called it quits. Now who will he spend all his time with in that giant new mansion on Bahama Circle?

The 31-year-old Kelly's rep confirmed the news, but it's not a big blowout breakup, which would have helped The Juice* tremendously. "They care about each other and it was amicable," a source tells People. "They're still friends." It's always possible her utter ignorance of baseball may have contributed, but now we're just speculating.

Minka will be keeping herself busy in Miami shooting the rebooted Charlie's Angels on ABC, while Jeter, 37, will likely be busy through October in the playoffs after getting his 3,000th hit in July. They were a pretty private couple, and both are pretty likable folks, so we can't really say too much about this one. Tampa really could have used a big celebrity wedding, too. Looking at Jeter's house, imagine how much it would have contributed to the local economy!
