When it comes to the stars of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” surprising unions aren’t anything out of the ordinary. But fans of the show were shocked to discover this weekend that K. Michelle is apparently good friends with new Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte.
During the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics on July 27, K. Michelle took to Twitter to show her support for the professional swimmer.
K. Michelle had even greater words of praise for Lochte when he took home the gold medal in the 400m individual medley.
“And the whip [email protected]$ begin @ryanlochte wins his first gold medal. I’m so f*ckin proud of u,” tweeted K. Michelle.
K. Michelle and Lochte were spotted sitting together last year at the 2011 NBA All-Star game, and now that K. Michelle has made their friendship public, fans are wondering if her affectionate nickname for Lochte “pooh,” is an indication that the two have become more than just friends.
However, Lochte’s mother recently told Us Weekly that her son has not had time for a romantic life.
“He’s too busy!” Ryan’s mom told Us Weekly. “He’s so warmhearted that I don’t think he’d want to have a relationship with somebody. I don’t think he wants to get into a relationship. It just wouldn’t be fair to the girl.”
Well, if Lochte and K. Michelle are more than friends, the reality star will surely spill the beans at some point. Until then, check out some other famous odd pairs below. – nicholas robinson
