Another day, another scandalous story about Ryan Lochte’s dating life... that ends up turning out to be not-so-scandalous after all.

Last week, the Internet was abuzz with talk that the 28-year-old Olympic swimmer often “goes out on one-night stands.” However, it turns that Ryan isn’t nearly the sort of player one might think. The quote came from his mother, and both she and Ryan were quick to clarify that the phrase had been taken completely out of context.

All I wanted to say is that he's so sensitive about not wanting to hurt a girl dating, so he just goes and dates and takes out a girl for maybe one or two dates,” Ryan’s mom explained.

Ryan maintains that he’s “never” had a one-night stand, and that when his strict swimming schedule will let up enough to allow for a relationship, he wants “to give that person my entire heart.”

Enter new photos of Ryan out partying in London until the wee hours of the morning on August 6. These photos, taken outside London’s Chinawhite nightclub at 3:30 a.m. show Ryan leaving with a so-called “mystery redhead.”

The only thing is, Just Jared has identified this mystery redhead as Ryan’s — wait for it — older sister. Not so scandalous anymore, is it?

Megan (also pictured here) joined her little bro and a bunch of female friends in a jam-packed taxi ride back to the Olympic village.
