The ladies can’t get enough of Ryan Lochte, not even Tyra Banks. The supermodel has been sitting front row at a few New York Fashion Week shows and when she dropped into Jeremy Scott’s show, she got some hang time with the Olympic Gold Medal winner, and they have the pictures to prove it.
Tyra schooled Lochte on posing for the camera, and he ate it up according to tweets that now seem to be deleted? “@tyrabanks and I photo opp at @itsjeremyscott,” Lochte wrote, including a photo of them hanging front row. She was equally into it, writing, “I got another fun shot of us @ryanlochte Fierce pout!” adding another photo to their collection.
“Love & Hip Hop Altanta” star K. Michelle recently professed her love and admiration for Lochte, telling RapFix that he’s even better than people can imagine. “He’s gorgeous, he’s fun, but he’s been focused on the Olympics, and I’ve been focused on music,” K. Michelle said, when questioned about the status of her relationship with Lochte. “He doesn’t have a girlfriend, he’s just the homie,” she added. “He really is.”
K. Michelle says that Lochte’s passion for hip-hop runs deep, and he works harder than anyone she knows. “His favorite rapper is Lil Wayne,” she told RapFix. “Before he swims he listens to Wayne; he loves Lil Wayne.”
And what’s the best advice you can get from an Olympic gold medalist? “[“He’s] someone that I can honestly say I look up to a lot,” the R&B singer explained. “I remember talking to him, kinda crying about my music, and the greatest thing that was said was that he trains for years for one moment–you can always put out another single. And when I thought about it and I saw his dedication and to saw him win medals like it’s nothing…that’s my homie. I’m proud.”
