Chandler, 41, comes off as an obsessed superfan more than anything.
If something did happen between her and Phelps, it appears Johnson has gotten over it.
Last week, Phelps’ self-proclaimed girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler — who has a Facebook page that is basically a shrine to the 29-year-old swimmer — revealed that she was born a man.
Radar Online later released text messages that seem to indicate Phelps and Chandler had some sort of fling.
“I love being onstage and competing in pageants,” Johnson told Thousand Oaks Acorn in 2010.
“It’s an empowering position to be in, where you’re comfortable in your own skin.” Johnson has also tried to shut down all the negative stereotypes that come with people who are in the pageant industry.
Nicole, on the other hand, was an usher and guided athletes to their seats.
She was assigned to usher Phelps to his seat but wasn’t so thrilled about it.“I really wanted to escort Travis Pastrana,” she said, referring to the motorsports and action sports star. “Michael and I just completely hit it off,” she said. Well, she wasn’t kidding when she said they hit it off. Before she became Michael Phelps wife, the couple had an on and off relationship for eight years.They started dating in 2007 but reportedly broke it off in 2011 and remained friends. We’ve been able to grow as a couple through everything we’ve been through, the positive changes I’ve made in my life.” The couple rekindled their romance in 2014 and were engaged a year later.For more photos of Nicole Johnson, head over to Page 2.Michael Phelps is one of the most well-known Olympians in the world.She originally signed on to do pageants to try to win a scholarship and ended up winning first runner up.
