Pic Reveals Michael Phelps As Bong Smoking Pot Head

|

Shocking news! Michael Phelps, the super human swimming machine and Olympic gold medalist, likes to hang out and get stoned. At least that explains his ridiculous, high calorie diet – he just had the munchies. The photo – which caught the jock mid bong hit – was snapped in November, when Phelps was visiting a lady friend named Jordan at the University of South Carolina. But instead of cuddling with his sweetheart over Friends reruns and pizza, he spent his time in the south getting hammered, and eagerly accepted the bong when passed to him at a party one night. Numerous spies provided details of his stoned gallivanting, but our favorite is below:

“He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits. Michael ended up getting a little paranoid, though, because before too long he looked like he was nervous and ran out of the place.”

Today Michael released an apologetic statement: “I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment,” he said. “I’m 23 years old, and despite the successes I have had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner that people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public — it will not happen again.”  [Photo: FilmMagic]
