In essence: Ryan Lochte’s girlfriend, Kayla Rae Reid, is still his #1 fan.
The playboy model is staying by his side amid the athlete’s ongoing Rio controversy, landing together at LAX in L.A. on Monday and approached about the scandal while loading their suitcases into a car. “I will always support him no matter what,” Reid told a cameraperson, which was posted in a Daily Mail video.
Hours earlier, the Olympian gave an emotional interview to the Today show’s Matt Lauer in NYC. He apologized for fabricating the story that he was allegedly robbed at gunpoint while in Rio de Janeiro, and was pulled from numerous sponsorships.
But hey, at least he has a loyal gal pal.
