The thought of clomping around the halls of his St. Petersburg mansion all alone this winter must have gotten to Derek Jeter so the New York Yankees star flew down to Miami to meet with his ex-girlfriend actress Minka Kelly and try to patch things up.
According to the New York Post, the Yankees shortstop met with the "Charlie's Angels" star at Morgan's South Beach on Sunday and were spotted "laughing and having a fun breakfast together."
For Jeter, the sight of his sexy ex-flame has to wipe out the final image of the Yankees disappointing season-- Alex Rodriguez striking out against Jose Valverde.
"They met up to try and figure it out," a source told the the Post. "They are trying to see what the future holds for them. They may eventually get back together. This was not some sort of final conversation and meeting between them."
Jeter and Kelly split up in August after three years as a couple. She was last seen in Yankee Stadium, hanging with his family in a luxury suite, when Jeter got his historic 3,000th hit.
It had been reported that Kelly was getting cozy with her "Charlie's Angels" co-star Ramon Rodriguez-- but that talk has been dismissed by both parties.
"They are simply just friends," the Post reported. "There's nothing beyond that."
Last week, Rodriquez (R-Rod) hastily left before a television interview after a promo on the show mentioned the rumored romance with Kelly. The show claims, " He didn't want to talk about his co-star and left before his segment was scheduled to air."
Sources told the Post that Jeter and Kelly split because she was spending more time in Miami filming the show while Jeter was battling through a slump and in the middle of the AL East division race. They insist no other parties played a part in the breakup.
Jeter now has the whole winter to woo back his former-love and might have to hang around south Florida a lot more.
"Charlies Angels" isn't exactly a ratings blockbuster, but it's got better legs than Jorge Posada.
