Is derek jeter still dating vanessa minillo
A highly eligible bachelor in New York with matinee idol looks, his love life became a hot topic among the press, most notably his relationship in 1998 with pop star Mariah Carey.
Despite being fiercely protective of his privacy, Jeter's dating status has continued to receive intense coverage.
Minka is currently away filming episodes for the Charlie’s Angel’s TV remake which premieres September 22nd on ABC while Jeter is well on his way to having another home run season with the Yankees.
The count down begins before Derek Jeter nabs yet another A-list celebrity.
Jeter has been linked romantically to former Miss Universe Lara Dutta, actresses Jordana Brewster, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba, and MTV personality Vanessa Minnillo, among others.
During his rookie season the young shortstop gained instant fame and soon became a regular subject in the local newspapers' gossip columns.
He came very close to winning the MVP Award in 2006 when he finished a close second to Justin Morneau, getting 12 first-place votes compared to 15 for Morneau, whose team came from far behind to win the division.
A former Rookie of the Year and fourteen-time All-Star, Jeter is in good company since the similarity scores method shows the most similar players to Jeter (through 2014) include six Hall of Famers and several other players who are strong candidates for the Hall, although none of them is truly similar, which is the sign of an exceptionally good player.
The New York Post says the two have “gone their separate ways” and that part of the problem was Jeter didn’t like Davis’ fame growing as much as it has.
Davis appeared in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition last year and gained more recognition as Direc TV’s genie. In the past, when his girlfriends become famous and start doing sexy shoots, that’s when they break up.
