Why Michael Phelps Broke Up With His Model Girlfriend

Michael Phelps & Megan Rossee

Michael Phelps is a single man!

Michael Phelps appears to be swimming solo.

The 27-year-old Olympic champion broke up with his girlfriend, model Megan Rossee, 25 after a relationship of less than a year. They had been dating since last March and Phelps reportedly decided to move on to "pursue other options.” Sounds like a business transaction.

But does this mean Phelps is looking for a serious relationship — maybe even marriage — or does he just want to play the field and this was a gentler way to put it? Maybe it was a distance/time issue.

"Things happen for a reason. #notme," Phelps wrote on Twitter on Monday. Rossee later on tweeted a photo of this quote: "A woman's loyalty is tested when her man has nothing. A man's loyalty is tested when he has everything."
