Michael Phelps may have two DUI arrests under his belt, but the Olympic gold-medalist’s new girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler, has quite the criminal record of her own.

Chandler—who told in an exclusive interview that she was born with both male and female genitals and lived as a man until her late teens— was arrested for her involvement in a sinister extortion plot back in 1992, can reveal.

According to Maine court documents, the blond stunner, who then lived as a man named David Roy Fitch, plead guilty to theft by extortion, a felony, and was sentenced in June 1992 to two years in prison. However, with credit for time served, she only was forced to spend 33 days behind bars. Chandler was also fined $1,000 and given two years of probation.


A Maine newspaper dated January 15, 1992 reveals that the then-19-year-old was caught by police accepting $10,000 from a local businessman in a Biddeford bar.

Chandler also told she was also arrested for writing bad checks and driving while intoxicated.

The Washington, D.C. based sign language interpreter took to Facebook to explain the extortion charges.

“At 19, I thought it would be smart to blackmail someone into giving me the money for my surgery,” she wrote in a November 13 post. (She completed her gender transformation by going under the knife.)

As exclusively reported, Chandler says she and the much younger Phelps, 29, engaged in a sex-fueled fling before he checked into rehab on October 5.

“The intimacy with him was amazing!” she told “It was the first time in my life that someone has made me feel like a true woman.”
