Taylor Lianne Chandler, the self-proclaimed girlfriend of Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has revealed on her Facebook account that she was born intersex and raised male. Being intersex, Chandler had a penis but not testicles, and a uterus but no ovaries. The now 41 year old spent the first 29 years of her life as David Roy Fitch before taking hormones and having corrective surgery to remove her male genitalia.

“I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man,” Chandler said in her Facebook post.

According to Chandler, she and Phelps through Tinder, a mobile app dating service that allows people to communicate with each other after exchanging pictures. A passionate relationship allegedly began shortly thereafter.

“Spending time with him was like a teenage love affair,” Chandler said in an interview with The Daily Mail. “I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him.”

Chandler detailed the pair’s first date to The National Enquirer. The two went to a Baltimore Ravens game before getting hot and heavy.

“One thing led to the next, and we made love during halftime,” Chandler said. “Later, we had sex again. The intimacy with him was amazing! It was the first time in my life that someone has made me feel like a true woman.”

Phelps is currently in rehab after a DUI arrest in September. Although he is expected to be released from the facility within the next week, neither Phelps nor anyone from his management team has addressed Chandler or her story.

“I am probably going to lose him because he is a brand that his team wants to protect and things since he went to rehab came to my attention that didn’t put him or our relationship in the best light,” Chandler told The Daily Mail. “He is the first man I ever had intimacy with and felt comfortable and all woman. When he went to rehab I had to go through all this scrutiny and tabloid mess by myself. His team at Octagon abandoned me, whether he knows that or not I do not know.”

It is unknown right now if anything about their relationship is true. While it has been confirmed that Phelps does indeed have a Tinder, there are no pictures of him and Chandler together, and though she has posted pictures of Phelps and his dog on her Instagram, there is no evidence of the two of them being together at the same place at the same time.
