It came as quite a shock when the news of their breakup went public, and now one report claims that Minka Kelly's skyrocketing career is to blame for the rift between her and ex Derek Jeter.

According to E! Online, a source close to the "Charlie's Angels" actress cites Minka's recent success for putting too much of the spotlight on the pair, as the insider explained, "They kept their relationship very, very quiet—there are no rumors of cheating, nothing. And Minka is handling this the way she handles everything, she's a down-to-earth, real person, a sweetheart, and this took her by surprise."

The source added, "This is Derek's doing for the most part. If you look back at his relationships, as some of the girls started to rise in fame, that's when they broke up. Vanessa Minnillo, Lara Dutta, they all start out with sexy photo shoots and then all of a sudden they blow up and it starts going awry. He has a history of it, and he's just repeating it with Minka."

Looking to have been the final straw, the pitfalls of stardom seemed to lay too heavy of a burden on the twosome, as the insider told, "There's a lot of pressure on both of them right now. He's the Yankees captain, everything lies on his shoulders. Minka's feeling a lot of pressure with Charlie's Angels. As both started to feel the pressure of their jobs, the relationship just came second."
