Notre Dame Linebacker Manti Te’o’s Girlfriend, Lennay Keuka’s Death Was A Hoax.. And So Was She

Manti Te’o is up for the Heisman Trophy this year for his championship season with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish but he might also be up for another award: Con Artist Of The Year. You wouldn’t think a linebacker for one of the most popular college football teams ever would be starving for attention but not only was his relationship with Lennay Kekua made up, much less her death, but looks like she herself was also figment of someone’s imagination and it appears our star football player may’ve been in on it.

Apparently our jock in question lost his grandmother and his girlfriend within 6 hours of each other which would make us all go ‘awww’ but when you say things like that, inquiring minds want to know and the investigative minds at did some checking and couldn’t find records of anything anywhere about this mystery girl. No obituary, no death certificate, no school records, hospital records, school transcripts, not even a Facebook account… nothing.

Manti says that no she wasn’t imaginary, he developed a relationship with her online and feels this person was actually an imposter and is playing a sick joke on him.

“This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about…” Manti said in his statement, “but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her. To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone’s sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.”

I guess we’ll find out in time but this is highly suspicious given that he ended up caring this deeply for someone that he’d never even met much less held her hand. I’ve been involved in online relationships before and it is possible to be duped, but not to the degree that he claims. Something still smells very fishy here and I don’t think it’s the Red Lobster I’m having for lunch… Here’s a piece ESPN did on Te’o back when the whole world still had the wool pulled over it’s eyes.
