Gateway drug alcohol leads Michael Phelps to try demon weed!


What A Dope

THIS is the astonishing

picture which could destroy

the career of the greatest

competitor in Olympic history.

In our exclusive photo

Michael Phelps, who won

a record EIGHT gold medals

for swimming at the Beijing

games last summer,

draws from a bong.

The glass pipes are generally

used to smoke cannabis.

And after sporting chiefs announced

laws which mean four-year bans

for drug-taking,

Phelps’ dreams of adding to his

overall 14 gold medal tally at the

2012 games in London could

already be OVER.

Those dreams seemed the

last thing on his mind when he

puffed from the bong during

two days of partying with students

last November,

a quiet time in the swimming

calendar when athletes would

not expect to get tested for drugs.

One party-goer who witnessed

the star’s behaviour told the

News of the World:

“He was out of control

from the moment he got there.

“If he continues to party like

that I’d be amazed if he ever

won any more medals again.”

Phelps’ aides went into a panic

over our story and offered us a

raft of extraordinary incentives

not to run the bong picture.

It was on November 6,

weeks after his Beijing triumph,

that 23-year-old Phelps surprised

students at the University Of

South Carolina in Columbia by

showing up unannounced

at a house party.

He was visiting Jordan Matthews,

a girl he was secretly seeing

who was a student there.

Our source revealed:

“Michael came to visit

Jordan but ended up

just getting wasted

every night.

“He arrived with a group

of girls hanging all over him.

Jaws hit the floor

when he walked in.

You don’t get many

celebrities in Columbia,

so when Phelps comes

to your party

it’s a very big deal.

“He didn’t know many people

so you’d think he’d be

a little shy.

But he was loud,

obnoxious and slamming

beers from the get-go.

“Every girl wanted a piece

of him and every guy wanted

to be his best buddy.

He couldn’t get enough

of all the attention.”



As he basked in his hero status,

Phelps knocked back beers and

shots of spirits.

And when a student offered him

the glass bong engraved with

red writing,

he did not hesitate,

says our source.

The 6ft 4ins athlete,

in a white T-shirt and navy cap

worn back to front,

clasped the device in his

huge hands and inhaled deeply.

Our source said:

“You could tell Michael

had smoked before.

He grabbed the bong and

a lighter and knew exactly

what to do.

“He looked just as natural

with a bong in his hands

as he does swimming in

the pool.

He was the gold medal

winner of bong hits.

Michael ended up getting

a little paranoid, though,

because before too long

he looked like he was

nervous and ran out

of the place.”

But the next night,

Phelps was out partying again.

The source added:

“He was right back

at it at Pavlov’s bar.

“Like the night before

he was holding court,

throwing back shots two

at a time and pouring

drinks to every cute girl.”

Drink has got Phelps into

trouble before. In 2004,

aged 19, he got 18 months

probation for driving while

under the influence.

His wild behaviour is in stark

contrast to the grim regime

which took him to the top

of his sport.



He once described his life,


“All you do is eat, sleep,

swim; eat, sleep, swim;

eat, sleep, swim.”

Last night Phelps’ management

team and the sporting world

closed ranks over the scandal.

The US Olympics Committee,

who have pledged to clamp

down on drug use,

refused to comment,

as did USA Swimming and

Phelps’ coach Bob Bowman.

More surprising still was the

World Anti-Doping Agency’s

refusal to comment,

given that they introduced

the four-year ban on sport’s

drug users.

Phelps, who earned £4million

last year in endorsements,

has resumed training for

the 2012 games.

But there were fears about

his commitment when, weeks

after the bong incident,

he began dating former

stripper Caroline Pal.

Phelps is represented by

marketing giant Octagon,

which works with huge brands

such as Mastercard and HSBC.

They admitted proven cannabis

use would be “a major taint”

on Phelps’ character.

Spokesman Clifford Bloxham

offered us an extraordinary deal

not to publish our story,

saying Phelps would become

our columnist for three years,

host events and get his

sponsors to advertise with us.

In return,

he asked that we kill Phelps’

bong picture. Bloxham said:

“It’s seeing if something

potentially very negative

for Michael could turn into

something very positive

for the News of the World.”

He stressed that the swimmer

had taken 1,500 drug tests

and never failed one.

Until now?



(At least he can endorse beer for millions

because alcohol is not a drug…um…)
