USA Swimming suspended the 18-time Olympic champion, dealing a blow to his comeback and forcing him to withdraw from the 2015 world championships.

After Phelps' DUI arrest, the 29-year-old is banned from USA Swimming-sanctioned meets through April 6 for violating the official Code of Conduct.

Its executive committee approved the sanctions, which take effect immediately.

"Michael's conduct was serious and required significant consequences," said Chuck Wielgus, executive director of USA Swimming, in confirming the ban.

"We endorse and are here to fully support his personal development actions."

Michael is headed to a rehab program to better understand himself, the superstar athlete announced in the wake of his arrest, whatever that means.

Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse for the NFL and Adrian Peterson, a new scandal has gone public today, as the Minnesota Star-Tribune is reporting that Peterson used funds from his Peterson's All Day charity to purchase alcohol and rent a hotel room for an all-night orgy that erupted in violence.

The alleged incident took place in 2011, when Peterson, two of his relatives, and four unidentified women checked into a room at the Eden Prairie Hotel.

One woman at the party became upset when she saw Peterson having sex with another woman. A loud altercation ensued, during which Peterson reminded the woman that she should not get "emotionally attached" to him as he was engaged to someone else.

Police responded to a noise complaint shortly thereafter. The party was broken up and no charges were filed, but one of the attendees informed police that Peterson had paid for the evening using a credit card attached to the Peterson's All Day bank account.

On Sunday in Australia, the South Sydney Rabbitohs won the National Rugby League championship, prompting Channel 9 to report live from the scene of one major victory party.

Sounds like a rollicking good time, doesn't it? You have no idea.

In the following video, an unidentified fan drops his pants in the background of reporter Tom Steinfort’s live segment, dangling his penis for all to see. For multiple seconds.

Steinfort was unaware of the X-rated incident as he reported, but later learned what went down and Tweeted an apology.

“Soooooo, the perils of live TV…..apologies for that nudity in my live cross just then,” he wrote, later joking:

“total balls up, bloke made a cock of himself, really dropped the ball… wonder if that Bunnies fan has copped a call from his mum yet?”

Michael Phelps may be off to rehab trying to find himself, but before his latest brush with the law, he allegedly could often be found with Taylor Lianne Chandler.

Taylor Lianne Chandler, Michael Phelps Text?
Taylor Lianne Chandler is Michael Phelps' alleged cougar girlfriend. This was sent to THG directly from a source claiming it's from her. Decide for yourself in this gallery!

Late last week, a tipster contacted The Hollywood Gossip to reveal that Phelps had been with Taylor Lianne Chandler the night of his DUI arrest.

Are they an item? We can't say for certain, but some online sleuthing and a second anonymous email to THG reveal the above photos to be Chandler.

Phelps was reportedly boozing and gambling in a casino for several hours before getting behind the wheel at around double the legal BAC last week.

Our tipster in the Canton area of Batlimore, where Michael lives, claims he is involved with Chandler, a Washington, D.C. resident, on the down-low.

"We saw a blonde model type leaving Michael Phelps' place," our source says, recalling a recent incident in which the two were spotted together.

Following Michael Phelps' DUI arrest last week, says that he is taking a break from swimming to "attend a program" that will help him better understand himself.

The 29-year-old, who was reportedly boozing and gambling at a casino (possibly with purported girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler) is at his low point now.

According to his official Twitter account, the athletic legend writes:

Mike Phelps
  • "The past few days have been extremely difficult."
  • "I recognize that this is not my first lapse in judgment, and I am extremely disappointed with myself."
  • "I’m going to take some time away to attend a program that will provide the help I need to better understand myself."
  • "Swimming is a major part of my life, but right now I need to focus my attention on me as an individual, and do the necessary work to learn from this experience and make better decisions in the future."

The 22-time Olympic medalist was charged last week with DUI, excessive speed and crossing double lines on I-95 in Baltimore, where he lives.

Katy Perry was the celebrity guest on ESPN College GameDay Saturday, and rarely will you see a pop singer contribute so much to a college football show.

At one point, she threw a series of corn dogs toward the camera to rile up LSU fans, whose smell she likened to the greasy food product ... obviously:

Wearing a pink and black rug-type sweater-jersey that she may or may not have gotten from the University of Oregon, Perry wasn't close to done.

The 29-year-old openly hit on handsome Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight when asked to pick a winner for the Sooners' game against TCU.

"Trevor Knight, call me!" Perry shouted, while holding up a custom-made, heart-shaped sign with Knight's picture on it. He has a girlfriend, sadly.

The Oklahoma football program indoctrinated Katy into the fan club on Twitter, but given that TCU ended up winning, they may want to rescind that ...

Early on Tuesday morning Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI. The following day Phelps apologized for the incident, but offered no new details with regard to the arrest.

Well, we've received some information that may shed some light on it ...

Several days later, very little has been confirmed, other than the fact that Phelps was boozing and gambling in a casino for several hours before getting behind the wheel.

Though neither Phelps nor local law enforcement have been forthcoming with regard to new details, we may now know the identity of the new lady in Phelps' life.

One who was reportedly with him on the night of his arrest.

An anonymous tipster informs THG that locals in the Canton area of Batlimore in which Michael lives have determined that Phelps is romantically involved with Washington, D.C. resident Taylor Lianne Chandler.

And from the sound of things, their relationship is a dramatic one:

A lottery challenge took place on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 4, while the constants struggled to keep up with their plans over at the ranch.

To win "The Lottery" was to leave the ranch and go home for a week, with trainer in tow. The catch? That one person would represent the whole team.

The rest of which? Left trainer-less, and very possibly directionless.

That's the irony of the reward on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 4. They call came to get away from the real world. Are they ready to go back?

Add in the pressure of being the one person representin' ... tough.

Damien Woody, from the blue team, was the one selected, and trainer Jessie accompanied the two-time Super Bowl winner back to New Jersey.

His eye has been on the prize from the start. Can he keep it there?

Damien's wife and seven (!) kids are all proud of him, so that's got to help, while Jessie and he talk more about what led him to this epic journey.

Feeling a little uninspired today? Can't believe it's still not the weekend? Well on days like this, you just gotta keep livin', man, L-I-V-I-N, and we've got just the video clip to help you do exactly that:

Yes, Matthew McConaughey's visit to a University of Texas at Austin football practice will help you surf the perfect wave of serenity all the way to the Island of Eternal Truth. Or maybe it's just really funny. You be the judge:

Following what must be the most zen-like pep talk in history (We've titled the speech "A Time to Chill."), McConaughey leads the team in a round of Wolf of Wall Sreet-style chest thumping - a practice that we imagine will now become a staple in locker rooms across the country.

Sadly, at no point does he spark a doob and ask, "Did you score a touchdown last week? It'd be a lot cooler if you did?"
