Insiders have confirmed that Michael Phelps and co-founder of The Mamas and the Papas Michelle Phillips were seen locking lips last week at a tapas bar near Washington D.C.
Ms. Phillips, who has been passing herself as the fictitious 'Nicole Johnson', admitted that she has not had this much fun since she was married to Dennis Hopper for a week in 1970. Incidentally, that same year the Olympics were held in Baltimore, Maryland (which is Phelps' hometown).
Phillips and Phelps were first introduced in 2004 at a Mothers Against Drunk Driving meeting through mutual friend Philip Michael Thomas, who starred in the 1980's hit TV-series Miami Vice.
When asked to comment, Phelps' mother, Debbie, described the pair as a couple of "lovesick puppies".
