He was unharmed, thankfully, but Ileana Lochte told reporters that the star American athlete was on his way to a party with a group of people — including at least one of his US teammates — when they were mugged.
She said to USA Today (below):
"I think they're all shaken up. There were a few of them. No, they were just, they just took their wallets and basically that was it."
Scary!!! …but also, maybe not true!
Lochte's personal coach, David Marsh, disputed Ileana's claim about the mugging, saying his swimmer "was not held up." Furthermore, IOC spokesman Mark Adams said the story of the swimmer getting robbed at gunpoint was "absolutely not true."
Allegedly, things went down early Sunday morning when Lochte and a teammate grabbed a cab to go hang out with Brazilian swimmer Thiago Pereira.
According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
