    I am so sorry to read this. They did make a cute couple. Maybe it is for better. I always thought he was stringing her along!

    I’m glad they split – for both of their sakes. Better now than 5 years down the road with kids.

    They were still together? That’s one couple who managed to stay pretty low key. Oh well. He wont have any trouble finding the next one, hell, there’s probably a line forming as we type. And I doubt she will be single too long either.

    I love how every break-up or divorce is consensual and amicable, and how they still remain friends and care about each other. Because no one’s feelings ever get hurt, right?

    @DANI: OMG…! I can’t believe this. This is insane…Totally, I hope she doesn’t go back to douche mayer.

    They seemed like the perfect couple. 56% people agree according to isHotr match rating.

    I will never see how people think she is beautiful.
    Decent looking yes but not hot or sexy or beautiful and a terrible actress

    @Fabulous: He’s probably not. But it doesn’t matter either way. Gay, Straight, Bi, Tri, whatever, Jeter’s a Golden God

    Look here, I’m still a Barry Bonds fan despite the alegations of steroid use. He’s still number one to me. Why because I’m a true fan and true fans will stick with the player en las buenas y en las mala. In good and bad times.

    Best thing Derek ever did! He needs a nice sweet girl who has no aspirations to be a movie star…he’s so nice & respectful…too good for someone like Minka…he should find a girl who is loving & not selfish…someone like my daughter!!

    How many hot chicks have been with Jeter?? He must be a first class, egotistical jerk. Maybe the girls get tired of having to call him “Mr. Jeter”.

    Minka should find herself a nice accountant or construction worker who will treat her much better.

    John Mayer is single. He’d be a good rebound for her.

    Baci Says:

    Although they made a nice looking couple, I never really thought it would work out. Her career has taken off, he just became a baseball God, they both have men and woman throwing themselves at them. Makes it hard to stay committed I would think. MInka is young and just starting, who wants to settle down already. Good luck to both and don’t let this affect your game Jeter!

    Minka's Stinka Says:

    I think minka’s snatch smelled. Every since he peaced out on her the guy had been on a hitting tear. His average is upwards at .300 and he’s spraying the ball all over the field.

    Very good news for a lot of men who can’t enough of MINKA. Now it’s time to wait to see how CHARLIE’S ANGELS will fare ’cause this reboot is going to be a huge hit.

    Minka is so gorgeous! I don’t have anything against Jeter but I think she could do better.

    I love DJ for the longgest and I wish one day I can meet him not just watching him on the Stadium. We should all respect their decissions. The best thing of all this is that they stay friends! Why breakup and be enemies, who knows maybe they just need to take some time apart. Jeter I love you for LIFE xoxo

    Girls, get real here! Says:

    No woman in her right mind would marry Jeter now. He’s already been with too many beautiful and famous women and he’s already ruined in a way, just like Leonardo DiCaprio. Girls need to wait until Jeter gets older and broken, looks like a geezer and can no longer hit home runs. That’s when Jeter might be ready and “able” to settle down. If you marry him now while he’s young, virile and still hanging out at clubs with the guys and gals, expect nothing but pain and suffering. He’s gonna play ball and play the field too. If you’re up for that, then have at it, but don’t say nobody warned you.

    Brock Says:

    He’s hitting much better since the split. I think she was becoming a distraction to him. Glad she’s gone. He can settle down if he wants after he retires. Until then I’m sure he can find several replacements for her to keep from being bored.

    Mom??? lol (Marianne, if you left the ‘e’ off your name, I would have thought it was my mother’s comment ;-) )

    …Derek IS so nice and respectful and his family seems like it, too and they do wonderful things for charity. I like how he keeps his personal life low key and as for the engagement rumor, that was from his sister’s wedding reservation, not his.
