Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Earlier this week, we introduced you to Megan Rossee, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps' L.A.-based girlfriend.

But no sooner has Rossee made her introduction to the world then she immediately gets left behind; not permanently, but Phelps did decide to go celebrate his Olympic victory sans his lady friend. According to TMZ, he's headed to the Maldives with a bunch of his (male) homies.

Oh well, she still wins for the tweet heard round the world.
