Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps is facing yet another controversy following his entry into rehab back in September.
Although the Olympic gold medalist has been plagued by accusations of drug abuse, hard partying and other bad behavior in the past, this is perhaps the most shocking. His current girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler has revealed that she was actually born a man.
Before he checked into rehab in September, Michael Phelps was having a steamy affair with much older blonde, Taylor Lianne Chandler.
But the most shocking aspect of their relationship wasn’t the 12-year age difference. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that Chandler, 41, was actually born a man!
Chandler, born David Roy Fitch, tells Radar in an exclusive interview that she was an intersex baby.
“I was born with male genitalia with no testicles, but I also have a uterus and no ovaries,” she explains.
As a teen, Chandler decided to change her name to Paige Victoria Whitney, and later underwent surgery to become the woman she always dreamed of being.
However, the busty stunner admits to Radar that she never told her gold-medal Olympian lover, 29, about her gender-bending past— even after their hot hookup sessions.
Wow! Scandalous much? But that’s not all.
Chandler says the couple met on Tinder in August, and later met up at ladies man Phelps’ Baltimore home to watch the Ravens football game on September 21.
“One thing led to the next, and we made love during halftime,” she says. “Later, we had sex again. The intimacy with him was amazing! It was the first time in my life that someone has made me feel like a true woman.”
Chandler also says that she later revealed her true identity to Phelps via email but the athlete never responded.
“I never lied to him,” Chandler insists. “We were together for such a short period of time, I never had a chance to tell him about my life.”
Phelps’ rehab stint was prompted following an arrest for drunk driving. He is set to complete his rehab stint this week.
Chandler adds, “Michael is a brand, and dating someone like me may not be the best thing,” she says. “I just hope he follows his heart and not what his people tell him.”
