Cameras were rolling on Ryan Lochte's E! reality show, "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" when his long-distance girlfriend four years called him to end the relationship.
On Sunday's episode, Jaimee Hollier, a British junior sales manager who lives in London, called the 28-year-old Olympic swimmer to break up with him. Sensing the seriousness of the situation, Lochte turned off his microphone to take the call.
"There are certain things that aren't fair for her ... I know how this conversation's gonna go," Lochte said of his decision to shoo the cameras away. "I didn't want cameras there."
According to the New York Daily News, the break up wasn't entirely unexpected. The long distance made it difficult for Hollier and Lochte to see each other more than a few times a year.
"One day we'll either go all in or we'll say our goodbyes," Lochte said in a previous episode. "We just haven't made a decision yet."
