Michael Phelps' girlfriend Megan Rossee gives him even more reasons to smile than 22 Olympic medals. Well, close to it anyway, if they're actually dating.
Following his record-setting run at the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games, Michael Phelps was spotted out celebrating with a “mystery blonde.”
Thanks to Hollyscoop, we know that lady's name, and what she looks like!
Here's Phelps with Megan Rossee, a 25-year-old model and L.A. resident:
"She and Phelps began dating in January (of this year) and things started to heat up just prior to the Olympics in London," says the source.
Hilariously, Megan was in a love triangle with Phelps and Lauren Conrad's ex!
"At the time when they began dating, [The Hills'] Doug Reinhardt was crushing on her too, but she chose to be with Michael instead."
According to the celebrity gossip site, Phelps was smitten from the start:
"Michael knew that he had to leave for the Olympics and not wanting to give up on their relationship, he flew Megan out to the trials in Omaha, then to London for The Games."
A candid photo of Michael Phelps, girlfriend and medals in hand, shows him celebrating in London and beaming for the camera. Aww.
“Yay Michael” Megan’s caption reads.Indeed. Currently, Megan and Michael are in London and will be doing some more private celebrating once the games conclude next week:
"They'll remain in London for three weeks after the Olympics wrap up this weekend to check out the sights and do some traveling together."
Like the swimming legend, Rossee is athletic. She used to be an avid soccer player; she’s now an aspiring model and works at Hollywood's Blok nightclub.
Her Model Mayhem profile lists her at 5'9" with blue-green eyes; a go-getter with an All-American girl flavor ... whatever that means.
According to the Hollyscoop source, Ryan Lochte's chief rival has been urging her for some time to quit her job as a cocktail waitress.
"He wants her to travel the world with him but she hasn't made her decision yet to quit. She's heavily considering it," the source says.
From the looks of the photo above, she might be leaning towards "yes."
Nice looking couple. You know, if they're really a couple. Phelps is falsely linked to around 10 women per week, so it's hard to be sure.
