Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter Split

Minka Kelly has kept her personal life really, really private. So much that I totally forgot she was dating New York Yankee Derek Jeter.

After dating for three years, the couple has decided to call it quits. A source revealed,
"They care about each other and it was amicable. They're still friends."

Kelly's rep confirmed the split.

Kelly stars in the upcoming Charlie's Angels TV show and Jeter had his 3,000th hit in July. The couple often dodged engagement rumors and avoided talking about their relationship.

Last year, a rumor spread that Minka flipped out after her dog couldn’t fly first class on a plane, and she called Jeter for help.

"Do people think that somewhere in my brain I think Derek can save me from someone telling me my dog can't fly?" she says. "If that's the way I worked, he would have left me a long time ago."

Talk about first world problems.

So now that Derek and Minka have split, who knows who he'll move on to next? Jeter has dated a ton of Hollywood beauties, starting with Mariah Carey.

Back in 1996, when Jeter was only in the MLB a year, he dated Carey. They split two years later, claiming media interference was the main reason. Right, I'm sure they would've made the long haul if it weren't for the media. It was Jeter's first celebrity girlfriend, but many more were to come.

After dating a couple of other hotties, including a Miss Universe winner, Jeter moved on to girl-next-door Jordana Brewster in 2002. A little less than a year later, the couple split. He then moved on to Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima. Men everywhere hated him.

In 2003, Jeter began dating Vanessa Minnillo, and is it just me or did they totally look like brother and sister? The two had a longtime on/off relationship, until Nick Lachey finally locked that down.

A year later, Jeter was linked to Jessica Alba, with reports claiming he had a longtime thing for her. He and every other dude. At least before her Spy Kids days. I'm not a man, but I bet Jessica cooing, "Baby's first bad guuuuuy!" is a total boner kill.

Shortly after that, he dated Scarlett Johansson briefly in 2004. A few years later, he had a whirlwind relationship with Jessica Biel that seemed to end before it even sunk in that he had landed yet another hot Hollywood lady.

Can't wait to see who Jeter moves on to next. Olivia Wilde? Halle Berry? Another fling with Scarlett? Apparently, Derek Jeter has his pick.
