Michael Phelps Girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler, Was Born Intersexual and Raised a Boy

In a new interview with Radar Online, Michael Phelps girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler says she was born intersexual.

Back in October, various gossip blogs reported that Phelps, the most-decorated Olympian of all time, was dating the 41-year-old and that she was with him when he was arrested for his second DUI in late September. Now, with Phelps currently in rehab while serving a six-month suspension from USA Swimming, Chandler has decided to just go ahead and tell the world her little secret.

“I was born with male genitalia with no testicles, but I also have a uterus and no ovaries,” she explained. Her parents raised her as a boy named David Fitch. However, when David was a teenager, she realized she would be more comfortable as a girl, so she starting calling herself Paige Whitney. Then, somewhere along the line, Paige had sex reassignment (or I guess maybe just assignment) surgery and changed her name to Taylor.

Taylor says she and Phelps met on Tinder, got together to watch a Ravens game, and “made love during halftime.” And while Phelps never knew about her sexual origins, she insists she did not lie to him per se.

“We were together for such a short period of time, I never had a chance to tell him about my life.”

Of course, Michael Phelps knows now. But he didn’t have to read about it on the internet. Chandler says she emailed the bombshell news while he was in rehab. (Classy move, Taylor. Are you sure you’re not a dude?)

Taylor did not explain why she felt the need to share this private information with the world, But she really didn’t have to, did she? We all know she’s looking for her 15 minutes of fame.
