A New Year. Another celebrity couple that’s dunzo. This time around it’s Olympic champion Michael Phelps, who reportedly split from his beauty queen girlfriend, Nicole Johnson. They went their separate ways a few weeks ago, I’m only guessing that it happened before Christmas. Why wait till after and have to give an obligatory gift, right?
So the details are scant regarding the split between the Olympic champ and former Miss California. No mention of a third party possibly involved, blah blah blah. Meanwhile, why don’t you check out some of my favorite sports news going on right now…

…Okay, and back to our story of Michael Phelps and his girlfriend Nicole Johnson. According to the NY Post, the on again/off again couple have decided to end their romance after several years together. Who knows who did the dumping. Did their relationship just run its course? Maybe it’s time to just focus on the Summer Olympics. Just sayin’.
