Gabby Douglas, Michael Phelps Reveal Their Personal Side
As various Olympic competitions begin to wind down, some athletes are revealing more details about their personal lives. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.
Gymnastic sensation Gabby Douglas is the golden girl of the Olympics, but she's heaping tarnish on her father's reputation.
In a stunning interview, Gabby claims her father, Air Force sergeant and Afghanistan veteran Timothy Douglas, is a deadbeat dad who's partly responsible for her mom's money troubles.
"My mom had to front all these bills," Gabby said. "My dad didn't really pay the child support. It was definitely hard on her."
Gabby's mom, Natalie Hawkins, has reportedly filed for bankruptcy twice. Gabby says her dad walked out on his family years ago.
"It was really hard for us growing up," 16-year-old Gabby told the New York Post. "My dad had left us so he wasn't really in the picture anymore."
According to one report, Gabby's dad is at the Olympics but has yet to see her compete because she didn't give him tickets to her events.
Meanwhile, Michael Phelps makes his first public appearance with his secret girlfriend. She's an aspiring model.
We're learning more about 25-year-old cocktail waitress Megan Rossee, who was at Phelps' side on the red carpet at a Speedo event in London. She apparently has a thing for athletes. Before dating Phelps, Rossee was reportedly involved with former Major League baseball player Doug Reinhardt, who appeared on the reality show The Hills.
Rossee stands 5-foot 9-inches to Phelps' 6-foot 4-inches. He reportedly flew her to the Olympic trials in Omaha, and then to London for the games.
Rossee waited to tweet a photo of herself with Phelps until he was done competing, and get this—she apparently calls the swimming legend "Bear."
And Ryan Lochte is revealing the identity of that mystery woman at his side as he left a party. Brace yourself for a shock...it was his sister.
