Melbourne, June 6 (ANI): Rumours persist that Stephanie Rice has been dating Australian swimmer Nick D'Arcy since splitting with Eamon Sullivan.
Rice and D'Arcy have trained at Queensland's St Peters Weston Swimming Club since they were young teens, but rumours over the status of their relationship started making rounds when the pair attended a friend's 21st birthday recently, reports the Sunday Telegraph.
"Steph and Nick have been spending a lot of time together. It's been going on for at least six months," News.com.au quoted a source as saying.
Rice's mum, Raylene, however, denied anything was going on between the pair.
"There is no relationship except for a friendship between Stephanie and Nick D'Arcy," she said.
Rice has previously been romantically linked to US swimmer Michael Phelps, rugby league's David 'Wolfman' Williams and long-time training partner Brendan Capell. (ANI)
