Looks like there may be a new celebrity couple! Michael Phelps was spotted out and about in Los Angeles with socialite Brittny Gastineau. In case you have no clue who Brittny Gastineau is, she is best known for appearing on a short-lived reality series called The Gastineau Girls, being the daughter of former New York Jets player Mark Gastineau, spelling her name weirdly and presumably now for dating Michael Phelps.
Read on for the scoop…
Olympic medalist Michael Phelps was first seen with Brittny Gastineau at the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles and then again out shopping the next at The Grove shopping center. Although the romance hasn’t been officially confirmed by anyone’s camp, it looks promising.
But then again, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria looked promising…Anyway, a source told People that Brittny Gastineau “thinks [Michael] is a really sweet guy. She understands his athletic background since her dad was an athlete.” Uh, not true. Her now defunct reality show hyped up the fact she was Mark Gastineau’s daughter, but Brittny hasn’t been in contact with her dad for over 17 years. The source went on to say that “Brittny has been in long-term relationships her whole life. She’s young and she’s just having fun.”
Hopefully that’s all Michael Phelps wants too. So is Brittny Gastineau just trying to get back in the spotlight with Michael Phelps or do they actually like each other? Only time will tell.
