E! News is reporting that the identity of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps's girlfriend is 25-year-old model Megan Rossee, from Los Angeles. E! cites an unnamed source as confirming the news, but there's been no official word from Phelps or Rossee, who recently tweeted a photo of the pair together in support of the superstar swimmer. And last week, she tweeted this:
"@MichaelPhelps this probably will get lost in your tweets but since i cant text i miss you and cant wait to spend time with you for real xo."
With a record 22 Olympic medals under his belt, including 18 gold medals, Phelps should have some time to relax after the games since he retired from competitive swimming on Saturday ... so maybe, just maybe, we'll see a Phelps-Rossee public romance heat up some time soon. Time will tell.
So what do you think? Are you surprised by this match? Or have you been suspect all along?
