Michael Phelps and his girlfriend Megan Rossee have apparently broken up.
The Olympic swimming sensation, who has a record 22 medals and retired after the Summer 2012 Olympic Games, ended his relationship with Rossee, a model, because it wasn't going anywhere and he wanted to pursue other options, according to TMZ.com.
The couple had dated less than a year and charted their relationship on Twitter. While they have not publicly confirmed their split, recent Tweets suggest they're no longer a couple.

Glimpses into their rumored relationship have been sprinkled throughout their Twitter postings in the months leading up to the 2012 Summer Olympics, where they took an even more public approach to their romance: Ditching his pool attire for an Olympic celebration, Phelps suited up for the red carpet with a glammed-up Rossee on his side.
But Phelps, 27, and the aspiring model, 25, who reportedly began dating in January, have already had their P.D.A moments on the social media site – namely when celebrating a certain special holiday.
