Somebody’s got some explaining to do! Hot off the news that Michael Phelps just told his girlfriend Megan Rossee to quit her job and hang out with him all the time, we’re hearing that he’s going on a full-out bro trip to the Maldives and is leaving his girl at home?
TMZ has learned that Phelp’s first post-Olympic vacation is a trip to the most expensive island in the world! The Maldives!
The Maldives are a tropical getaway where people go to propose or have their honeymoon, but for Phelps, he’s treating it like a fancy Vegas trip because he’s going with all his bros! I wonder if Ryan Lochte is invited?
Apparently Michael really wanted to do a boys' trip after his record-setting Olympic performance but it’s not like he was anticipating being single because he’s been with his girlfriend since January. So he must have been planning this trip for a while.
Still, it’s weird that he and a bunch of dudes are going to lay out on white sand beaches and get couple's massages. It’s just bizarre.
Apparently Michael is making it up to Megan by taking her on a separate trip for just the two of them to go anywhere in the world. Michael asked Megan to quit her job and is supporting her so they can travel together.
Michael has been talking about his retirement plans a lot, which includes a ton of traveling. He can’t wait to do something other than diving right into a pool after hoping off the plane.
“I want to travel a bunch, that's something I've always wanted to do. I've been able to see so many places in the world but I've never been able to experience them,” Michael announced in a recent interview, “I've seen pools and hotels pretty much ever since I've been on the national team. I’d like to experience some things, whether it's traveling through Europe or going back to Australia and being able to go around."
Wow, retirement at 27. Must be nice.
