Following his whirlwind week, Ryan Lochte returned home to Charlotte, NC, with his rumored new girlfriend, Kayla Rae Reid, on Saturday. The Olympic swimmer kept his head down as he made his way inside his home and steered cleared of showing any PDA with the Playboy model. Ryan was in the news recently after claiming he and three other teammates were robbed at gunpoint during the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While the Brazilian government denied any truth to his story, Ryan continued to defend it and even appeared on the Today Show earlier in the week, telling Matt Lauer, "The guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and said 'get down.' I was like (puts hands up) I put my hands up. I was like 'whatever.' He took our money, he took my wallet."
Things then took a turn for the worse when video footage from the morning in question surfaced and proved that Ryan was, in fact, lying. On Thursday, the athlete issued an official statement, apologizing and blaming the incident on a language barrier.
