Derek Jeter dated a number of celebrity women over the years since entering Major League Baseball in 1996. Early in his career, Jeter dated singer Mariah Carey, though the romance ended in 1998. As of 2015, his latest celebrity girlfriend was model Hannah Davis.
Derek Jeter dated actress Vanessa Minillo for around three years beginning in 2003. Other famous women he dated briefly include various Hollywood television and movie actresses and models, such as the actresses Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Jordana Brewster and Jessica Alba, who later went on to marry Justin Timberlake. Models he dated include Tyra Banks, Vida Guerra and Adriana Lima. He also dated Lara Dutta, former Miss Universe.
Jeter entered into a long-term relationship with actress Minka Kelly but the couple broke up in 2012, despite earlier rumors of marriage. Jeter’s breakup with American model Hannah Davis led many to speculate that he prefers quiet relationships, which are difficult to achieve when his girlfriends achieve greater fame.
Derek Jeter retired from professional baseball after the 2014 MLB season. He played for the New York Yankees for 20 years. During that time, he achieved great fame as the team’s shortstop and for his role in five World Series championship wins.
