Retired Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is making some weird life decisions lately. First, there was the whole bong thing. Then, he decided to start playing professional poker (and his friends and family are apparently worried that he’s going to gamble away his fortune). After that, he grew a ridiculous moustache and started dressing like a dumb hipster.
And, throughout his transformation from superathlete to superdouche, Phelps gained an affinity for dating gold-digging wannabe models. Never a good idea.
Now, various media outlets are reporting that Phelps has ditched girlfriend Megan Rossee, a waitress in Las Vegas, and started dating one of Hollywood’s most deplorable fameballs, Jasmine Waltz.
Waltz is a fame-seeker of the worst kind. She’s reportedly hooked up with a slew of D-list celebrities, including David Arquette, Jesse McCartney and Vinny Guadagnino (of Jersey Shore “fame”) in her quest to raise her profile in Hollywood. She’s also said to have bagged a few A-listers along the way, including Chris Pine and Ryan Seacrest.
Waltz’s dating exploits failed to make her a household name, though, so she decided to take things to the next level by utilizing the time-honored tradition of the leaked sex tape.
Actually, calling it a sex tape is being way too kind. Waltz straight-up worked out a deal with porn company Vivid to release a porn movie that was intended to look a bit like an amateur sex tape.
The deal with Vivid reportedly went sour, but Waltz decided that the world needed to see her banging some random dude, so she released the tape on her own website, RealJasmine.com.
Then, she pretended that the tape leaked without her full knowledge of it happening: “I’m absolutely shocked that the public is now going to see what I made with my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day.”
Anyhow, we’ll let you be the judge of whether Phelps made the right decision. There’s no denying that Waltz is ultra-hot — she definitely has a Megan Fox thing going on — but it seems pretty likely that she’s going to suck every ounce of publicity she can get out of him and then move on to the next guy.
