Kellogg's dropping Phelps

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - It's been a bad day for Michael Phelps. He was suspended by U.S.A. Swimming. And Kellogg's says they will not renew his endorsement deal.

All of this stems from a picture showing him smoking out of a marijuana bong. Now, he cannot compete for the next three months, and during that time he will not get paid.

We are hearing from Phelps for the first time since the scandal broke. "Like, I said, its a bad judgement, and I can try and learn from it and try and make my life better than it has been in the past. I've made mistakes, and I have to learn with every mistake that I have learned."

Kellogg's put Phelps on cereal boxes. But, now says, his behavior is not consistent with the company's image. He will be dropped at the end of the month.

South Carolina authorities are considering whether to charge him for pot possession.
