Jake Gyllenhaal and Minka Kelly hooked up – who knew?
The actor had pursued Minka shortly after she split from Derek Jeter last fall, but the actress turned him down the first time around. “Minka wasn’t into Jake when he first pursued her,” a mutual friend tells US Weekly.
Instead, Kelly spent the winter romancing serial dater Wilmer Valderrama. But when the affair fizzled in late April, says the friend, Kelly “decided to give Jake another chance.”
Alas, the spark never quite caught fire, says a second source. “It was never serious, and it’s over now.”
Kelly’s last serious relationship was with Derek Jeter from May 2008 to August 2011. Gyllenhaal dated country singer Taylor Swift from October 2010 until January 2011 when he broke up with her “out of the blue.” A source confirmed to Us that Swift will feature a song about her brief relationship with Gyllenhaal on her upcoming album.
Can’t wait to hear Taylor’s song!
