What started out as a summer romance for Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and model Megan Rossee has apparently run its course and ended in a split.
It was during the 2012 London Games in late July that the world first learned about Phelps’ new love interest.
Rossee posted a Twitter photo that showed her leaning affectionately on his shoulder with her arm entwined in his as he clutched a slew of Olympic swimming medals.
Though they have not publicly acknowledged the split, they each tweeted messages that strongly suggest they have gone their separate ways.
The 27-year-old uber-athlete wrote, “Things happen for a reason #notme.”
She tweeted an image of a quote by an unidentified source, “A woman’s loyalty is tested when her man has nothing. A man’s loyalty is tested when he has everything.”
Along with the sage words of wisdom she tweeted, “Yep.”
Phelps didn’t reveal on Twitter how he rang in 2013 but its no secret that he loves Sin City. The breakup didn’t spoil his ex-girlfriend’s New Year’s Eve celebration.
She posted what appeared to be a Girls Night Out photo that she captioned, “The love of my life is the love between friends. Happy New Year! #truelove #bffs.”
