Minka Kelly’s split from New York Yankees star Derek Jeter was confirmed Friday, but it sounds like he may have struck out several weeks prior.

At the TCAs Aug. 7 – where Kelly, 31, was promoting her upcoming Charlie’s Angels TV reboot – the actress seemed to foreshadow her split from Jeter, 37.

When asked to complete this sentence: “I don’t need a man to ,” Kelly was quick with her response.

“I don’t need a man to validate me,” she told PEOPLE.

She and Jeter dated for three years before their amicable split. “They care about each other,” says another source. “They’re still friends.”
