no title

Ryan Lochte is drowning in his own regret in light of his recent actions.

The Olympic swimmer has lost all of his sponsorships following the Rio robbery scandal, and is starting to no longer feel like the gold-medal winning American hero he was last week.

An inside source told E! News that Lochte is "not doing well" amid the international controversy that painted him as a partying, vandalizing, entitled liar — and forced him to endure a rather intense scolding from Matt Lauer (and no one wants to deal with that).

The insider explained:

Ryan Lochte (Kind Of) Owns Up To His 'Immature Behavior' In Interview With Matt Lauer — Watch!

Oh, Ryan Lochte

The American swimmer opened up to NBC's Matt Lauer last night in an exclusive interview, and it sure seemed like the Olympic star was sad… but not completely apologetic?!

Called out on his lies, Lochte backtracked, but never full on groveled — despite Lauer staying right on him with some tough questions.

Ch-ch-check out a snippet of last night's interview (above), in which Lochte discusses his self-proclaimed "immature" behavior in Rio when he reported an armed robbery despite never actually being robbed.

Lauer also called out Lochte about straight up lying to Billy Bush and to Lauer himself, and the TV host sounds none too pleased about that.

Watch Today's Al Roker GO OFF On Ryan Lochte Over His Rio Robbery Lie!

Filed under: TV NewsBusted!TwitterRyan LochteOlympicsMatt Lauer

no title

Al Roker may be the weatherman of the Today show, but he is bringing down the HEAT on Ryan Lochte for lying about getting robbed in Rio!

On Friday's broadcast, the NBC anchor went off on the Olympic swimmer after it was revealed his claims of being robbed at gunpoint with teammates Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, at a gas station in Brazil were false!

After Lochte insisted he was telling the truth, surveillance footage from the gas station showed that the swimmers were not robbed, but had a confrontation with security guards after causing damage to the bathroom — clearly exposing the Olympian's lie!

Not only did Roker slam the athlete for repeatedly lying about his story (nobody lies to Matt Lauer and gets away with it!), but for leaving his teammates detained in Brazil — where Bentz and Conger eventually admitted that their story was "fabricated" — while he jetted back to the US.

After his on air spout, Roker took to Twitter to retweet Lochte's apology, advising others to "accept it and move on":

U.S. Olympic Committee Confirms Ryan Lochte Was NOT Robbed & Apologizes To Brazil For Swimmers' 'Unacceptable' Behavior! Read The Statement!

no title

It looks like the case is officially closed on #LochteGate!

Ever since Ryan Lochte claimed he and three Olympic swimmers were held up at gunpoint at a gas station bathroom in Rio early Sunday morning, there's been doubt whether the athletes were actually the victims of crime.

On Thursday, United States Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun confirmed what Brazilian police have been saying all week, that Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen were the committers of crime that night — and had been involved in vandalizing a gas station bathroom.

Throughout the week, Lochte insisted he was telling the truth — that he and his teammates were robbed by men dressed as police officers — but raised some eyebrows when parts of his story didn't add up and was inconsistent when retold in an interview with Matt Lauer.

However, during a Thursday press conference, Civil Police Chief Fernando Veloso said there "was no robbery," and that Brazilian authorities believe the Olympians lied to cover up

Ryan Lochte Takes To Social Media During #LochteGate Scandal — To Make A Silly Birthday Video For A Fellow Olympian!

no title

What in the WORLD is he thinking?!

If for some reason you're unaware of #LochteGate, US Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has come under A TON of heat after claiming he was robbed at gunpoint in Rio — and now we know his story isn't EXACTLY true!

After confirming the tale to Matt Lauer on Wednesday night, Lochte's case took a huge turn when security footage dropped of the "robbery" after Lochte's teammates reportedly threw him under the bus and confirmed they embellished the tale.

While Ryan has his own theory about the security footage AND we learned there's a chance that those teammates DID NOT say the robbery was a lie, the gold medalist — safely in the U.S. — is busy having some fun on social media!

On Thursday, the buff athlete posted a now deleted video in which he wishes fellow USA teammate Elizabeth Beisel a happy birthday!

Though the video is deleted, Bradd Jaffy, a senior news editor and writer for NBC Nightly News, took to Twitter to share the news as well as a screenshot of the video (below):

Ryan Lochte Responds To Claims He Lied About Rio Olympics Robbery As The Two Athletes Detained Are Released — Get The Scoop!

no title

Before the Olympics even began, there was a lot of controversy surrounding the health and safety conditions in Rio, and last weekend's story of Ryan Lochte getting held up at gunpoint might be the worst we've heard — if it's true!

Over the weekend, the famed swimmer claimed that he and other Olympic athletes Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen were robbed by men pretending to be cops. Well as you may know, the Brazilian police haven't exactly been overly willing to trust the US swimmer's story.

While the Government wanted to question the 32-year-old, he had already left the country and was back home in the states. However, Brazil was able to detain Bentz and Conger — who have now been released — and questioned them about what went down. A rep for the United States Olympic Committee released a statement in response to the release, saying:

Melania Trump Plagiarizes Michelle Obama's Speech From 2008 — See The Comparison For Yourself!

no title

Really Melania, copying a classmates' homework?!

On Monday night, the GOP held the Republican National Convention and as you may know, there was some drama right out of the gate with some delegates involving Donald Trump, but it doesn't even compare to Melania Trump!

Every year, the candidates' wives generally make a speech at the political conventions and despite saying she does her own work, Melania apparently couldn't help but steal borrow some inspiration from a speech Michelle Obama gave back in 2008!

Though there were several similarities, it was one section of her speech that gained A LOT of attention as Trump's words were so incredibly similar to Michelle's that there's almost no way she didn't rip the First Lady off! Oh, and if you're trying to defend the former model by saying most people have speech writers, you should know the 46-year-old told Matt Lauer earlier in the day:

"I read once over it, that's all, because I wrote it … with (as) little help as possible."

*cough*cough*BULLSH*T*cough*

Ch-ch-check out a side-by-side comparison (below) to see how RIDICULOUSLY obvious it is that Melania plagiarized Miz Obama!
