Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly Break Up

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly have broken up after three years together, People reports. They say that Minka’s rep confirmed the news and that the two are parting amicably. Just Jared, who first reported the news, adds that the two remain friends.

The news comes as somewhat of a surprise given the speculation last year the two might wed. Additionally, Kelly was in the Yankee Stadium luxury box with Jeter’s family to celebrate Derek’s 3,000 hits. That was only six weeks ago. Chances are they were already on shaky ground at that time and didn’t officially split until recently.

Now that we know Jeter is back on the market, the big question becomes whom will he chase after next? The Yankees captain has already dated or been linked to Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Mariah Carey, Jordana Brewster, Vanessa Minnillo, Lara Dutta, Joy Enriquez, Adriana Lima, and Vida Guerra. You know his next girl will likely be another dime.

Here’s a look at all the women to whom Jeter has been linked:

B.J. Staten Met Fiancee Alisha Reverman on 10th Tee of Pro-Am

This is not your typical love story. Golfer B.J. Staten and fiancee Alisha Reverman will marry on November 5th after meeting last year in Utah.

How did they meet, you ask? The better question is where did they meet.

How about the 10th tee of the Utah Championship pro-am.

Reverman was at the golf tournament to help a friend promote a Mesquite, Nev. casino and happened to be at the 10th tee when Staten and his group was hitting. Staten spotted Reverman and they began flirting. She followed him the rest of the round but it wasn’t until after the round that Staten realized he should give her his phone number.

She invited him to go out for drinks with her and her friends later that night, but he was the anti-Tiger and turned down the offer because he had an early tee time. They went out for dinner the next day following his first round, and she met him at his tournaments the next few weekends.

The relationship continued the next several months and earlier this month Staten proposed to her. They’re scheduled to wed in November.

True love. It’s a story as old as time.

And now we know that pro-ams are good for more than just Happy Gilmore punching Bob Barker’s lights out. Congrats to the couple on their great story and their upcoming wedding.

Pictures: Jonathan Toews’ Girlfriend Gabrielle Velasquez is Insanely Hot

I’m starting to get the feeling Jonathan Toews has the best everything. Two years ago, the Blackhawks captain had the best hockey team in the NHL.  This past season, he had by far the most intense “history will be made” commercial promoting the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  Now, it has come to the public’s attention that Toews could possibly have the hottest girlfriend in hockey.

More than half a year has passed since we added to Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends, but Gabrielle Velasquez has forced our hand.  If you believe in the higher powers shutting a door and opening a window, you can use Velasquez to fill the void left by Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend Holly Sweeney saying goodbye.  A Barstool Sports reader sent in some pictures of Velasquez after she and Toews were spotted enjoying a Cubs game over the weekend. We quickly decided they must be shared with the world.  Check out these pictures of Jonathan Toews girlfriend Gabrielle Velasquez, courtesy of Barstool:

Jay Cutler Reportedly Dumped Kristin Cavallari, Engagement Off

With all due respect to Kristin Cavallari, we really couldn’t understand how anyone could get married to Jay Cutler. He’s an off-putting guy who doesn’t seem like much fun to be around. We’ve even heard that most NFL players do not like him. So maybe the dissolution of their relationship is a good thing.

People Magazine reported Sunday that the engagement between the couple was off. “She got dumped,” a source told the magazine. “She’s absolutely devastated. She can’t believe this is happening.”

The couple got engaged in April and were planning a wedding for next spring. They even had an engagement party last week, according to Cavallari’s twitter.

People says Cavallari was spotted Saturday night Cavallari at a club in LA without her engagement ring. “She was hanging out at a table with Nicky Hilton and Alessandra Ambrosio,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She was telling friends how they called off the engagement.”

Cavallari seemed to come across as a supportive girlfriend, tweeting how pleased she was when the Bears drafted an offensive lineman to help protect Jay. While she’s probably disappointed, this is likely the best outcome for her in the long run.

J.J. Barea and Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera Having a Baby

One of the greatest tricks the devil ever pulled was setting J.J. Barea up with Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera. Barea is one of the most famous athletes from Puerto Rico, and Rivera is their other top natural resource. For Puerto Rico natives the couple makes sense. For everyone else, it’s about as normal as Freakshow and his wife.

Anyway, reports were published Wednesday saying Rivera is pregnant and the couple is having a baby. Rivera confirmed the news and even stopped taping a show because of it. The two have not made plans to marry and Barea has requested privacy on the matter. We’ll certainly leave the issue alone after this post but there is one key nugget that must be pointed out.

As Hoops Hype wrote on twitter and as El Diario reports, Rivera is seven weeks pregnant. Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals were played seven weeks ago. If that information is factual, the honorable thing for Barea to do is follow in this woman’s footsteps and name his child Dirk.

Dirk Barea, kinda catchy, no?

Phillies Prospect Jarred Cosart and Girlfriend Amber Hartman Have Public Break Up on Twitter

Twitter is a social media tool that can be quite useful for athletes. Many athletes get plenty of hate mail on there and sometimes have to close out their accounts to avoid the negativity, but it can be quite helpful for fan relations and building a brand. The UFC encourages all of its fighters to have a presence on there, and Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips uses it for community outreach. For all the positive uses twitter has, I’m pretty sure breaking up with your significant other is not one of the purposes for which it was designed.

That didn’t stop Amber Leigh Hartman and Jarred Cosart from doing just that.

On June 28th, Hartman, a writer and media personality in the Dallas-area, announced she and boyfriend Jarred Cosart, a Phillies pitching prospect, had broken up. Cosart replied on twitter saying “You shouldve written this correctly by saying the you and only you decided to go your separate way.”

At that point it appeared they had reconciled, but that wasn’t the end of the story. The Fightins kindly provides us with screen caps of what transpired next on twitter:

Tony Parker’s New Girlfriend is French Beauty Queen Barbara Morel

The French press says Spurs point guard Tony Parker has a new girlfriend, and it’s beauty queen Barbara Morel. The first reports about Parker’s new girl emerged three weeks ago, but I didn’t see it until Spurs Nation reported it (via IamaGM.com).

According to their information, Morel is a 20-year-old girl who won Miss Nationale in France. She is also a trade and commerce student in Saint-Lambesc, Bouches du Rhône. The youth of Morel should be a nice change from Parker’s previous wife, Eva Longoria.

If you recall, Parker and ex-wife Eva Longoria divorced in November. Eva was suspicious about Tony’s relationship with Brent Barry’s ex, and Tony was suspicious of Eva and Lance Armstrong.

Given that Tony’s play seemed to improve after he broke up with Longoria, we can only imagine what sort of wonders Morel can work on his game. Check out some pics of Morel to see what we mean.
