Manti Te'o story fake

Manti Te'o story fake 


A friend just sent me this story. Unbelievable, and to make it Tech related - it's the off-season and the board has been pretty quiet today...

Just finished reading it. With my mouth completely dropped to the floor. And just stared into my computer screen until the words turned blurry from a lack of focus.

This is one of the lowest things I've ever read.

Apparently Manti Te'o's skill at linebacker was a hoax as well.

This guy is going to drop like a rock in the draft. Between his last game and now this kind of stuff, it could really hurt him. NFL teams dont generally care for this kind of shady stuff. Makes him look crazy

Re: Manti Te'o story fake 


I only read it once and I skimmed a couple of parts, but there are a few explanations.

A. The Tuiassasopo kid set up a fake twitter and cyber seduced Manti to humiliate him. When he figured out what was going wrong he came up with the story about meeting her at Stanford and that she died... watch "Catfish" on MTV, its unbelievable how many otherwise normal guys fall head over heels over some cyber crush who ends up being non existent or a false representation.

B. Manti is romantically involved with Tuiassasopo and they set up the female account as a cover. It was actually Tuia that Manti was being visited by in HI,..

C. Horrible lie to drum up Heisman hype.

I like the first comment:

"More like Nosuch Dame, amririte???"

That's some weird behavior, and it's hard to believe that Te'o wasn't in on it.  Pretty sick stuff.  I wonder if it was a weird attempt to come out of the closet.  Sounds like a close relationship with this hoaxster.

Since this is the internet, I'm skeptical. It will all come crashing down on him if it's true, and he will be a piece of crap scumbag. But Deadspin has a lot on the table too, if they were looking up the wrong girl or if she went by another name or something they will get crucified by publishing this.

Either way. got my popcorn ready.

Edit - Wow, Teo is done.

ND statement confirms Deadspin's report that "Lennay Kekua" never existed, but says Manti Te'o was duped.

Deadspin...... a legit source who does better work than ESPN should be doing.

I love how they said he was "duped", yet Te'o spoke about how they have met.

What a lousy spin

Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o

On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.
