Earlier this week, Michael Phelps’ self-proclaimed girlfriend — Taylor Lianne Chandler — revealed she was born a man.
Though the decorated Olympian is currently in rehab and unable to comment on the situation, an insider has revealed Michael found out the same time as everyone else!
“He is completely horrified and embarrassed,” the insider told Hollywood Life. “He is cutting her off cold turkey and doesn’t want to talk about it to anyone at all. He wants it to go away as fast as possible.”
The 41-year-old opened up on Facebook about being born intersex.
According to the Intersex Society of 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.”
Chandler alleges they met this past August on the dating app Tinder.
“Spending time with him was like a teenage love affair,” she wrote on Facebook. “I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him.”
