Playing the Field: Michael Phelps is single again

Michael Phelps and Megan Rossee, in happier times, during the London Olympics.

Anybody looking to play gold digger? Literally.

Because, ladies, I know someone on the market who has a lot of gold. Medals, that is.

Michael Phelps, the winningest Olympian of all-time, is back on the market after reportedly breaking up with girlfriend Megan Rossee. The two had been dating for quite awhile — in the world of celebrity dating anyway. The model and swimmer had been a couple since before the London Olympics in late July.

We first learned of the couple when Rossee tweeted pictures during the Olympics, where Phelps added four golds and two silvers to his list of 22 medals (18 gold).

Since it’s important we keep you apprised of who is dating whom, and only in the interest of that, we will provide visual evidence of Rossee.

Yep, that’s a model all right.

Wait, let me go back and read that TMZ story …

HE broke up with HER!!

Dear Lord, I suddenly wish I had pursued a career as an Olympic swimmer. Why, oh why, did I not stick with swimming lessons as a kid?

Phelps tweeted a cryptic message on Monday, apparently alluding to the end of he and Rossee’s relationship. (Though it sounds like he’s blaming her for the breakup.)




Or then again, maybe he was just talking about dropping his Subway sandwich or something.
