Michael Phelps


Bro Out on Tropical Island

8/8/2012 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Phelps
told Bob Costas he wanted to travel the world after retiring from swimming ... and now TMZ has learned that Stop #1 is gonna be AWESOME ... a boys trip to one of the most expensive tropical islands in the world!!

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Phelps is planning to visit the Maldives with several close male friends in the near future -- a notoriously expensive island destination for the rich and famous ... so obviously, it's amazing.

But here's the rub -- we're told one person was NOT invited ... Michael's hot GF Megan Rossee.

According to sources, Michael wanted to do a boys' trip after his record-setting Olympic Games in London -- so he's going without the ol' ball and chain.

(FYI -- the Maldives is an archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, and is Asia's SMALLEST country. Sitting at just 4'11" above sea level, it's also the world's LOWEST country. The more you know.)

But Phelps hasn't completely forgotten about his one and only -- we're told Michael promised to make it up to Megan by taking her on a separate trip ... just the two of 'em ... anywhere in the world.

Not a bad consolation prize.

Not if hell froze over. But to each his own.

To me it looks like, a douche invited another douche to a trip. And other douches think its grand. Move on...life's too short.

You know that privately Megan Rossee is kind of upset for not getting invited. I'm sure she'd love to go to an exclusive, expensive tropical island like Maldives and sip margaritas and watch the sunset and so forth with him. Maybe they haven't really figured out if they are exclusive boyfriend-girlfriend enough to go on vacation with him yet. He's been super busy getting ready for the Olympics. Maybe they've only gone on about 5 or 10 real dates so far.

If he is straight, he's a total mama's boy anyway. The worst kind of man to be in a relationship with.

I don't know why everyone says she's ugly, probably a LOT better looking than the people calling her ugly

Michael Phelps must be gay? Give me a break. He seems like your typical macho NBA player who has a different girl in every city.

Some of these guys that play volleyball and surf at the beach get PLENTY of hot looking women. Same thing goes for swimmers and tennis players and golfers. They tend to hang out at the same vacation spots and country clubs, etc.

Megan Rossee is a former college soccer player so maybe Michael can hang out with the soccer crowd a little now. Plenty of good looking girls play soccer. They look good running around out there. They certainly aren't fat like a lot of girls their age seem to be. Some of these soccer girls are pretty tough. They collide with each other all the time and kick, trip and elbow each other plenty.

Check out some pictures of the hero of women's soccer game the other night. Her name is Alex Morgan. Alex is hot like Megan is.



Alex is going to be playing for the gold medal for women's soccer tomorrow. I bet a lot of people will be watching that game. Soccer is THE biggest sport in the world you know, not so much in the U.S. though where football and basketball are king.

Like all the ugly rock stars with hot GFs. He is ugly and goofy looking. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

She's nothing but a gold digger... tweeting his name for attention. Haha, can't direct message, huh? Funny, you just tweeted about someone DMing you 2 days ago. And he dad is giving interviews to the press? I give it less than a year....

If Megan Rossee turns out to be a big celebrity chasing gold digger I'm sure Michael will find out about it soon enough. A bunch of jealous females might know a few naughty things that Megan did in the past and they might call her a prostitute or escort or whatever on the internet and all that. Some of these "mean girls" are super vicious. Way more that most guys are.

May as well see it now. Global warming is causing a sea level rise that will literally sink the entire country underwater.

Weird place to go with your buds. It's a honeymoon and couples destination spot.
It's kind of isolated.
