Megan Rossee dating Phelps since January

Michael Phelps has been sporting a sexy blonde on his arm in London: Aspiring model and actress Megan Rossee. Let's find out more about her.

Hear that? It's the sound of hearts breaking, thanks to the revelation that Michael Phelps does have a girlfriend and she's hot. Megan Rossee, a cocktail waitress and model living in Los Angeles, reportedly started dating the Olympic champion in January.

Rossee was pretty much unknown before she stepped out with Phelps in London over the weekend, but we managed to figure out a few things about her.

Will work for hair and makeup

The aspiring model and actress has a profile on ModemMayhem.com with several modeling shots and info about her work. Rossee writes that she's "super easy going and pretty much down for any type of project (that doesn't involve nudity)."

Want to hire her? You don't have to pay her if "hair/makeup or wardrobe are provided." Something tells us that's going to change now.

She loves Twitter

Rossee loves to message her beloved "bear" on Twitter.

"idk how to direct msg u and don't wanna wake u up but just watched your swim :) good job today and can't wait to be there," she tweeted on June 26 while Phelps competed in the swimming trials in Omaha.

"@MichaelPhelps this probably will get lost in your tweets but since i cant text i miss you and cant wait to spend time with you for real xo," she added last week.

Cute, or does she just want everyone to know she's with "Phelpsie?"

Michael Phelps vs. Ryan Lochte: Who's the hotter swimmer? >>

She's 115 years old

Her ModelMayhem profile says she's 115 years old — a clever ploy, we think, since younger models are more valued over us in our twenties and thirties. In reality, she's 25 years old and measures in at 5-foot-10, 125 pounds, according to The Hollywood Gossip.

She's not a "fame seeker"

Many Phelps fans — including us — feel like she's with Phelps to up her profile in the entertainment world. Not so, says her father.

"She had a career in her own right before she ever met Michael," Wayne Rossee told RumorFix.com of his daughter. "In fact, she put things on hold to support him and go to London like he asked her to. She is not with him to be famous, she doesn’t need that from him."

At least Ryan Lochte is still single... we think.
