Manti Te’o real life girlfriend

Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o who went from making the headlines for bone crushing tackles to caught up in an elaborate hoax, has “come clean” in an exclusive live interview w/ ESPN Jeremy Schaap on Friday night! In the latest revelation, Te’o reaffirmed that he was not involved in the hoax (quote above), but did say that he “tailored” his stories so people would think he “met her before she passed away.” Te’o tip-toed the line and said he didn’t know for sure that “Lennay Kekua” never existed until Wednesday, when Ronaiah Tuiasosopo called Te’o and admitted he was behind the hoax. Check out the important points Te’o made during the interview, and the twitter messages Tuiasosopo sent to Te’o during the week below!
