In a video posted on the website, K.Michelle is sitting on a panel and says "I dated a white boy, he's a swimmer."
"A swimmer?" asks rapper Yung Berg.
"Yeah, he got eight gold medals," she replied.
Globalgrind.com scored an exclusive interview with the VH1 reality star where they discussed her relationship with Lochte and the video.
"That was really old...that video was so old. Like I had blond hair, daisy dukes...that was really old. Probably like almost two years ago," she said.
"Um my friendship with Ryan Lochte...that's my friend. Like um we met a year ago through his attorney who's a great person...well his manager and we're just cool," said K. Michelle.
When asked what they have in common, she said: "We have a lot in common. He loves Lil' Wayne, he loves hip-hop...Ryan will go out and have a blast! He's a fun person. He makes me laugh."
"Of course he's gorgeous," she added. "So much fun like he really is like a really inspirational person to me because I just remember him saying 'you know (bout my music) you'll be ok you know?' He trained for years for one moment," she said referring to the Olympics.
A source told Media Takeout that Lochte's friends do not think the reality star has the right image for him.
"K. Michelle is real hood," said the source. "That's not the image he wants to portray. Besides it's never good for a handsome man to tell people that he has a girlfriend."
The rumors started last week when K. Michelle sent this tweet to Lochte:
"OK ITS GOING DOWN THE 2012 OLYMPICS JUST STARTED AND MY POOH @ryanlochte IS ABOUT TO KICK A--. SO PROUD OF U. LUV YA," she tweeted.
When the 27-year-old won a gold medal in the men's 400-meter individual on Saturday, she sent another tweet that caused further speculation:
"And let the whip a-- begin @ryanlochte wins his first gold medal . I'm so f----- proud of u!!!!!"
"He goes out on one-night stands," Ike said of the 27-year-old Olympian. "He's not able to give fully to a relationship because he's always on the go."
