Michael Phelps ditches intersex fling

2014-11-30 17:32
Los Angeles - Michael Phelps is back with his girlfriend after a fling with an intersex woman.

Earlier this month, Taylor Lianne Chandler - who was born with parts of female and male genitalia - claimed to have had an affair with the Olympic swimmer, but the 29-year-old sportsman has now reconnected with his ex-girlfriend following the short-lived romance.

Instagram images posted to former Miss America, Nicole Johnson's account, now suggests the couple have rekindled their love and have been spending lots of time together.

In the caption of a selfie featuring the 22-medal Olympian taken earlier this week, she wrote: ''Out with my grizzlyman @m_phelps00 #datenight #nerds #movietime. (sic)''

On Thursday, she returned to show another snap of the pair, this time with friends and members of Michael's family, with whom she spent Thanksgiving.

She wrote: ''So #thankful for each of the people in this photo@hilary_phelps, whit, @m_phelps00, @dougeldridgemissing the parents @mamaphelpsh20@annettejohnsoncoss @douginla & dougs mama #family #eastcoastlove #happiness (sic).''

News that the couple have reignited their love comes just days after his short-term fling admitted they are no longer an item, and spoke about how she had originally connected with the stud through the dating app Tinder.

She told The Daily Beast: ''He pursued me [on Tinder]. He was actually outside the age range for what my account was set-up for. But what I've learned is when someone looks at whatever and likes you, even if they're younger it shows up in your feed.''
