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:
"We saw a blonde model type leaving Michael Phelps’ place," our source says. "She went to the bar across the street, Plug Ugly’s, where she was on her phone… calling and texting and crying at times."
"The name on her phone she was texting was Michael… She said she was in town from DC for business in crisis management, but she did not seem like she was there on business."
"She paid with a credit card, Taylor Lianne Chandler. Later she was back and came out of his place crying hysterically as he put her into an Uber.
"People at the bar say they have seen her many times going into his place over the past few months…She was supposedly with him the night he was arrested for DUI."
The source describes Chandler as a "tall, swimsuit model type."
The last time we received an update on his love life, Phelps was dating Win McMurry, a sportscaster best known for her work on the Golf Channel.
It is not known if Phelps and McMurry are still romantically involved.
