Jeter has done an amazing job of avoided the New York paparazzi over the years. Still, it’s been widely speculated that Jeter likes to spend the occasional night with a random young lady at his Trump Tower pad.

Derek has girls stay with him at his apartment in New York, and then he gets them a car to take them home the next day. Waiting in his car is a gift basket containing signed Jeter memorabilia, usually a signed baseball.

That’s what a “friend” of Derek told to the NY Post. He added, “The girls go through the back-door entrance in the Trump World Tower to avoid the paparazzi. He broke up with Minka in the summer and is definitely over her. He is playing the field.”

The job the Jeter does to stay private in his extracurricular dealings must be exhausting. He has done a good job to this point. In the wake of Tiger-gate we all know how quickly that can come crashing down, though.

He can’t complain about the media attention. No way. Any time you are sending girls out the backdoor of your multimillion dollar condo — things are going just fine. It’s a double edge sword. The way Jeter is getting these girls is because he is famous and thus he has to sneak around to avoid the media, while the reason he must sneak around is because he is famous. You don’t get the attention of the girls nor the attention of the media without the fame.

So, if your girlfriend suddenly comes up with a signed Jeter baseball, don’t get too excited New Yorkers. You don’t know exactly what she might have had to do to get said baseball.

This should be the new break-up gift. If a girl wants to ditch her guy — just give him a Jeter ball. He’ll get the hint.
