Could there be anything but marijuana in there????
We're sure Michael Phelps is not having a Chico's kind of Super Bowl day!
The UK's News of the World scored a picture of Olympics poster child Michael Phelps taking a big bong hit of what is assumed to be marijuana.
The tabloid always get their hands on crazy, juicy stuff!
The photo of Phelps supposedly getting high was snapped at a University of South Carolina party back in early November.
He was apparently visiting a university girl he was 'secretly' seeing.
We thought he was with that Vegas cocktail ho in November!
Play on, player!
One of the partygoers told the tabloid:
"You could tell Michael had smoked before. He grabbed the bong and a lighter and knew exactly what to do. He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits. Michael ended up getting a little paranoid, though, because before too long he looked like he was nervous and ran out of the place.”
What an idiot!
The Golden Boys' corporate sponsors sure won't be pleased!
When Phelps' agents caught wind that the NOTW was going to run the pic, they supposedly got down on their hands and knees for mercy. The gold medal winner's money men offered the paper,
1. Phelps as a NOTW columnist for three years
2. Host for NOTW events
3. Advertising money from Phelps' corporate sponsors
We're glad the NOTW said no and ran with it!
More importantly, Golden Boy might be out of the London 2012 Olympics because of this eff up.
A law that bans athletes for four-years for taking drugs has just hit the Olympic rule book.
The US Olympics Committee, USA Swimming and Phelps’ coach Bob Bowman have refused to comment.
We wanna hear what Momma Debbie Phelps has to say!
