It was a tough breakup for New York Yankees Captain Derek Jeter and his girlfriend, actress Minka Kelly this past August. The two, who were an item for almost three years, had an amicable split, but remained friends.
So it was with great surprise and interest that they were spotted together this past weekend in Florida. Jeter reportedly flew down there to see Kelly. A source told The New York Post that they are "figuring things out."
Yet another source says that they are just friends.
The two found the strain on their relationship too much to take, with Jeter on the road with The Yankees and Kelly's active shooting schedule, so a split was mutual, but heartbreaking.
The source from The Post added, "They may eventually get back together. This was not some sort of final conversation and meeting between them."
The couple had dodged engagement rumors while they were dating and never spoke of their relationship to the press, although they were frequently together in public and at events for The Yankees. She was in attendance when Jeter had his 3,000 career hit and she also appeared in the documentary Derek Jeter 3K.
Jeter's relationship with Kelly was one of his most serious yet. Prior to Kelly, Jeter was a regular in the tabloids for his serial dating, being linked to stars such as Mariah Carey, Miss Universe Lara Dutta, singer Joy Enriquez, Jordana Brewster and Vanessa Minillo. He also dated Jessica Biel and has been linked to Scarlett Johansson, Tyra Banks and Jessica Alba.
Kelly, on the other hand is linked to far fewer celebrities. She has reportedly dated Chris Evans, Donald Faison and John Mayer.
