Michael Phelps is single – report

The couple began dating at the beginning of last year (12), and the U.S. athlete’s relationship with Rossee heated up just before he jetted off to the London Summer Olympic Games in July (12), when the pretty blonde was spotted cheering him on.

But both stars are now set for a fresh start in the New Year after deciding to part ways, according to TMZ.com.

Phelps appeared to confirm the news in a cryptic post on Twitter.com, which reads, “Things happen for a reason.”

The 27 year old has previously been linked to American reality star Brittny Gastineau and model Nicole Johnson.
