Report: Jeter, Kelly rekindle romance
Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly, who called it quits in August, have been spotted together again in Paris, this time hugging and flirting outside the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
The couple looked radiant in the City of Light as they were mugging for pictures outside the church, home to one of the largest mosaics in the world.
In one photo of the actress and the Yankees captain, Jeter, 37, embraces Kelly at the entrance as they look out happily onto a bustling crowd of tourists.
In the series of snaps, the 31-year-old Kelly lifts up her iPhone to take pictures of herself and Jeter on the entrance steps.
While she concentrates on taking a shot, the Yankees shortstop smiles and gazes doe-eyed down at her.
Esquire magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive then examines the pictures on her phone. In another shot, Kelly pokes Jeter in the chest flirtatiously.
The two were also spotted Thursday walking through the Musee d'Orsay art museum.
"They had a guide taking them around on the fifth floor, and they were looking at Monet and the works of other French impressionists," Pepperdine University student Jaime Olaez, who saw the couple at the art museum, told Life & Style magazine.
"They went to all the different floors; they looked at Van Gogh. Derek was very low-key and was wearing a black-and-gray sweater. Minka looked very pretty. She was wearing white jeans, a brown jacket and boots."
The baseball star and the "Friday Night Lights" actress were joined by two friends.
The two also did some shopping in the Montmartre area and had brunch at a Parisian hotel Friday.
Jeter and Kelly were widely expected to end up married. The normally private Jeter even let HBO crews interview Kelly for the special about his 3,000th hit.
It seems that love can be just as sweet the second time around.
This is not the first reunion for the couple after they ended their three-year relationship.
Around the time that Kelly's TV show, "Charlie's Angels," was canceled, Jeter reportedly flew to Miami in October to visit her.
It was rumored that Kelly's "Angels" role, which had her spending a large amount of time in Miami, contributed to the split.
Sources also said that they broke up because there was a "lull in their relationship."
The New York Post reported in early December that Jeter was bedding a bevy of beauties in his Trump World Tower bachelor pad — and then coldly sending them home alone with gift baskets of autographed memorabilia.
The Yankees captain's alleged kiss-offs came to light when he mistakenly pulled the stunt twice on the same woman, forgetting she had been an earlier conquest, a pal said.
