Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean is dating Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps, we’ve just learned.
Her grandmother confirmed the news to RadarOnline that the two are seeing each other whenever he’s in town.
Her grandmother, Jeanette Coppolla says, “Carrie and Michael have been out to baseball games and lunch. He always calls her when he is in town and they go out.”
Prejean is aware of Phelps’ womanizing ways, too. Coppolla adds, “Carrie knows that he has dated a lot of girls but she enjoys going out with him and isn’t serious about being in a relationship with him. He’s a nice guy and she likes him.”
I guess that might take the pressure of all of the anti gay commentary that’s been flowing her way recently.
Earlier this week, she was asked of her relationship with Phelps by Billy Bush, to which she replied, “That’s not appropriate to answer right now. He’s a great man…You can call me on a later day and we can talk about that.”
I wonder if Perez Hilton tweeted Phelps to ask him his views on gay marriage yet?
