According to Amanda Sidman of the NY Daily News, there is no official engagement between Yankees star Derek Jeter and television actress Minka Kelly despite a published report to the contrary by the NY Post.
From the Daily News:
‘Minka says things are great between her and Derek – and they’re definitely serious – but there’s no talk of an engagement,’ the pal says, adding that ‘Minka has not been wearing a ring.’
The source continued that many of Kelly’s close friends have heard nothing of an engagement – besides the rumors that have been floating around since the weekend. Reps for Jeter and Kelly, meanwhile, didn’t return calls for comment by deadline.”
Apparently this rumor started when Jeter’s father, Dr. Charles Jeter, started it when he said that he is getting ready to watch one of his children walk down the aisle. What he was talking about was his daughter Sharlee Jeter who is engaged to marry rapper Skyzoo and getting married.
As further evidence against the marriage happening the Daily News points out that the Oheka Castle is extremely “hush-hush” about its famous clientele. There is also the problem with the supposed date of the wedding, November 5, being so close to the World Series. Derek would certainly not arrange his own wedding on a day when he might have to walk down the Canyon of Heroes should the Yankees repeat.
