Taylor’s Facebook profile says: “Taylor Lianne Chandler’s life changed on September 30 when her relationship with Michael Phelps, was made public.”
Something to make note of, there are no pics of Taylor and Michael ever together.
But she explains to Radar Online: “I was born with male genitalia with no testicles, but I also have a uterus and no ovaries. I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man.”
She claims that they hooked up at a Baltimore Ravens Game on Sept. 21.
“One thing led to the next, and we made love during halftime,” she tells Radar Online. “Later, we had sex again. The intimacy with him was amazing! It was the first time in my life that someone has made me feel like a true woman.”
