Phelps Keeps Relationship Private To Focus On Olympics
Entertainment

He is the man who captured the nation’s heart after winning a record-breaking 18 gold medals at the London games and becoming the greatest Olympian of all time. But it seems that Michael Phelps’ heart was already taken.

The 27-year-old has quietly been dating a Los Angeles-based aspiring model and actress for the past six months, which might come as a shock to his legion of female fans. Following their first appearance together as they left a London nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning, the couple made it truly official on Monday night when they walked the red carpet together at a Speed-sponsored event.

Phelps allegedly decided to keep his relationship with Megan Rossee under wraps so he could concentrate on succeeding at the Olympics. But it seems the pretty blonde has not been as guarded about her blossoming romance with the swimming star.Rossee has frequently broadcast her relationship with Phelps on Twitter, posting a number of intimate photographs of him.

The 25-year-old has also called him pet names in a number of public Tweets. ‘Good luck tonight bear,’ she posted on August 2, the day of the men’s 200m individual medley final.

Five days earlier, Rossee Tweeted a personal message to the most-decorated Olympian of all time, saying:

‘@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.’

Her supportive messages began in June, when she Tweeted: ‘idk how to direct msg u and don’t wanna wake u up but just watched your swim :) good job today and can’t wait to be there @MichaelPhelps.’ But her willingness to publicise their relationship has led some to speculate that she is only in it for the fame.

‘Michael is like a puppy dog around Megan – he’s completely in love with her,’

‘Forrest Gump’ As Directed By Wes Anderson Is Perfect (Video)

Wes Anderson, he’s so hot right now. It seems the new wave of parodies for the time being is everything Wes Anderson (don’t worry, “Frozen” parodies aren’t going anywhere). We saw the “Zoolander” scene a few days ago inspired by Anderson, and a few weeks before that we saw a beautiful compilation of his symmetry. Now, […]

Singularity At The Cinema: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Her’ And Fighting Against The Future

“Transcendence” isn’t a very good movie. It has the setup to be a thought-provoking, sci-fi, action flick, without any real action or thought of which to speak. It’s essentially the last 20 minutes of “Her,” spread glacially over a two-hour-and-twenty-minute run time. The biggest problem with “Transcendence,” however, is that it foregrounds and obsesses over its technology at the […]
