New York, August 8 (ANI): Megan Rossee, who propelled to stardom after being pictured on the arm of Michael Phelps, declined to wear sponsored outfits during the Olympics out of respect for the swimmer, it has been revealed.
The 25-year-old model looked in fine form during a swimsuit shoot in Southern California last December, the New York Daily News reported.
Their relationship reportedly became more serious leading up to the London Games - and the couple attracted serious attention during a red-carpet event for Speedo on Monday.
Rossee, an avid Twitter and Instagram user, has been commenting on her Olympic experience, including cheering on her 27-year-old beau, who won four gold and two silver medals in London.
According to gossip website Hollyscoop on Tuesday, Rossee turned down sponsorships from unspecified fashion lines wanting her to wear their clothes during the Games - convinced she would be identified cheering for Phelps from the stands.
When Megan asked Michael if he thought it was a good idea he said he didn't care but that his mom wouldn't be very happy if she did, the New York Daily News quoted a source as saying. (ANI)
