Friends:  ‘All Michael Phelps Thinks About is Gambling’

Friends of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps claim the record gold medal winner “only thinks about gambling” these days, more specifically about playing poker. 

Gambling911.com just the other day featured a report on Phelps desire to become a poker pro

"I love to play, it's fun, it's exciting. It was more something so that I could have time to myself. I could relax, I could be myself, and I could have fun," Phelps said in a conversation with Card Player. "It's a place where I can be me. I've met some of my best friends at a poker table. Some of the kids I'm always with, who I talk to every day."

His friends claim the Olympic swimmer gambles away close to $25,000 a week.

"All Michael thinks about is gambling," a poker-playing friend told The National Enquirer, according to the Daily Mail. "Michael has a 'don't quit until you win' attitude which was great while he was swimming but could be costly playing poker."

A National Inquirer report indicated that it was poker player Zachary ‘Carter’ King who provided Phelps with that infamous bong he got photographed with back in 2008. 
'This is not a good element for Michael to be hanging out with,' a source said. 'It's just going to get him in trouble - big trouble.'
