Michael Phelps’ Girlfriend Admits to Being Intersex

In a weird turn of events, Michael Phelps’ girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler, 41, says she was born with male genitalia but no testes along with a uterus but no ovaries. Taylor was originally known as David Roy Fitch before changing her name and birth certificate as a teenager and taking testosterone blockers and estrogen enhancers.

In a long Facebook post, Taylor says Phelps, who she met on Tinder, had no idea and that she is telling the world now because she wants to get in front of the media and tabloids.

The problem is I have made friends that I never told and dated and married people that knew nothing of my past. If you don’t understand what intersex is, Google it. I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man. There are people that remember me as an androgynous child at times because of what was forced upon me. I have dated many celebrities before, none of which knew my past. Michael Phelps and I met on Tinder and clicked. Spending time with him was like a teenage love affair. 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.

I am telling my story to take the power away from the media and tabloids that want to hurt Michael and I. I will probably lose him, which hurts like hell. I might lose some of you as friends and I will have to accept that. To the men in my past, what you saw, whom you loved, is who I am regardless of labels that the media tries to throw on my back. I am sorry for not trusting and loving you enough to tell you upfront myself at the time.

Taylor talked to Radar and said she and Phelps first had sex at halftime during a Baltimore Ravens game. I’m not sure what that has to do with this story but it sounded interesting.

”I am probably going to lose him?” Then why even take the risk? Why even bother posting the intimacies of ones’ romantic dalliances for the public to see? Why expose a purported partner who one presumably cares about to scrutiny, vilification or the suggestion he is into he/she sexual turns on (as if we are suppose to judge that as bad)? Unless of course Chandler already lost Phelps and she sought hit pay dirt with the tabloids…?
