Michael Phelps is dating aspiring model Megan Rossee, her father, Wayne, has confirmed to Celebuzz. “Yes, it’s true. I haven’t met him yet. I will soon,” Wayne said of the record-breaking Olympian. The confirmation comes after rumors began circulating that the swimmer was dating the 25-year-old Los Angeles model.
The rumors surfaced when Megan posted a Twitter photo of herself with Phelps on August 5 in London. She accompanied him to both the Omaha trials and the Olympics.
Wayne said his daughter and Phelps, who began dating in January, will continue their relationship after the Olympics are over. They plan on traveling before returning to the U.S.
In addition to posting the picture of the two together on Twitter, Megan also posted some tweets about him. She posted on August 2 “@MichaelPhelps: Last prelim swim complete…2 big ones tonight…Nap time now…”
Previously, on July 28, Megan tweeted “@MichaelPhelps this will get lost in your tweets but since I can’t text you I miss you and can’t wait to spend time with you for real xo.”
Hints of the romance began on June 28, when Megan 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.”
