You knew that Lindsay Lohan would drop DJ Samantha Ronson and her fedora for a man as sooner or later. You also knew that man-shark hybrid and 14-time Olympic gold medal-er Michael Phelps would dump America for one or many Hollywood starlets as soon as he got the hell out of China. But no one ever thought he'd run out on us for Lindsay freaking Lohan! But he will! She has magical powers!

The former child star has been barraging the swim machine with text after text in a campaign to wear down his better judgement. How long can he possibly hold out?

In between exchanging words with her dad this week, Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been exchanging communiques with another Michael - Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.

A source close to Phelps, who won eight gold medals at the games earlier this month, told the Mirror: "At first he thought it was a joke when she got in touch.

"But she's since been phoning and texting constantly. It's become a running joke in his camp.

"Lindsay has been trying to meet up with him. They're both going to the MTV Video Music Awards next month so they'll be sure to see each other properly then.

"Phelps is certainly flattered by all the attention but it's not clear how seriously he's taking it all."

Young fools. They never take anything seriously until it's all much too late. [Fametastic]
