Remember that insane twitpic sent out back in June? The one that had Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice in a tiny white bikini. Well that same Stephanie Rice is now being linked to Kobe Bryant and the two just may be dating! According to a photo Rice tweeted in late July, the two met then and have been in contact since then. Fast-forward a few weeks and the two have been spotted multiple times since the games began in London.
On July 20, Rice tweeted out the above photo with the following message:
First off, curious as to why she put star in quotations. It’s pretty clear Kobe is a star, but either way she seems smitten to be in his presence. According to CelebBuzz, the two have been seen together multiple times in London and even took in a cycling event together.
Rice also made news this week, telling Aussie media that she used a stripper pole to train for her swimming events.
“I did do some classes and I made one of my family members buy me the pole because I was, like, well this can be cross-training exercise,” Rice told the radio station.
