Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star K. Michelle are rumored to be dating.
Lochte, who recently won the 400-meter individual medley at the Olympics, and K. Michelle allegedly dated in the past and may rekindle their romance, FreddyO reports. But any possible love connection has been put on hold since Lochte has been in London for the last few weeks training and competing in the Olympics.
A source told FreddyO,”K. Michelle is so happy with life right now, she’s focussed on her music and yes she does have someone special she thinks about, but nothing serious just yet.”
K. Michelle shared her support for Lochte via Twitter. She tweeted,”OK ITS GOING DOWN THE 2012 OLYMPICS JUST STARTED AND MY POOH @ryanlochte IS ABOUT TO KICK ASS. SO PROUD OF U. LUV YA”
Lochte’s mother has tried to shut down rumors of any romance for her son. She told UsWeekly:
“He’s too busy!” Lochte mother told Us Weekly. “He’s so warmhearted that I don’t think he’d want to have a relationship with somebody. I don’t think he wants to get into a relationship. It just wouldn’t be fair to the girl.”
It wouldn’t be suprising if the 27-year old was dating K. Michelle. He has a thing for hip hop culture. The swimmer has a ritual after he wins races where he pops in one of his many diamond encrusted grills and takes a picture with his medal.
Lochte wore a black and white diamond grill after winning the 400 IM last Saturday.
K. Michelle revealed she was dating ‘a white guy who is a gold medalist swimmer’ during a panel discussion last year. Check out her admission around the 1:05 mark below.
