Taylor Lianne Chandler: Michael Phelps' Alleged 'Girlfriend' Born a Man

By    |   Thursday, 20 Nov 2014 01:48 PM

Taylor Lianne Chandler, the self-proclaimed girlfriend of decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, revealed last week in a lengthy Facebook post that she was born "intersex" and had her male genitalia removed when she was in her 20s.

Chandler's Nov. 13 Facebook note, which was followed up by multiple posts linking to press coverage about her, claimed that she met Phelps through the mobile dating app Tinder. The 41-year-old also says she was with the 29-year-old when he was arrested for a DUI earlier this year in Baltimore.

 


"Spending time with him was like a teenage love affair," Chandler wrote on Facebook. "I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him. I didn't tell him about my past until threat of the media exposing me forced me too. Yes, I was with Michael the night of the DUI, the story of the Uber and crying and me wanting to stay with him that night are true. A lot of the other things printed are lies."

Chandler wrote that her relationship with Phelps will likely end now that information about her past has been made public. The swimmer announced in early October that he would be taking some time away from the spotlight to "attend a program that will provide the held I need to better understand myself."

"He is the first man I ever had intimacy with and felt comfortable and all woman," Chandler wrote. "When he went to rehab I had to go through all this scrutiny and tabloid mess by myself. His team at Octagon abandoned me, whether he knows that or not I do not know . . . I am telling my story to take the power away from the media and tabloids that want to hurt Michael and I."

According to the Intersex Society of North America, intersex is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn't seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.

Phelps has not commented publicly on Chandler or her claims that the two are in a relationship. He is currently serving a six-month suspension from U.S. Swimming and his DUI trial is set for Dec. 19 in Baltimore, The Washington Post reported.
