Ridiculousness: Story of Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend Is a Hoax

For those who are not familiar with Manti Te'o, he's a college football player, Heisman throphy finalist. Big storyline this year was him playing through personal tragedy of losing his grandmother and girlfriend. Well as this article explains, the girlfriend bit was one big lie.

Interesting read even though I don't know him. Why come up with such a thing?

Re: Ridiculousness: Story of Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend Is a Hoax

Who knows? Publicity? Takes a sick mind though.

Anyway Notre Dame released a statement:
Quote:
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.

Dennis Brown
University Spokesman | Assistant Vice President
But anyone who took the time to read the original Deadspin story will quickly figure out this statement is bullshit as it just doesn't add up that he didn't know about the hoax and was in fact the victim, when all the signs point to him being behind it along with his friend.

LOL at that Notre Dame statement. December 26, huh.

Fakes are always found out - ALWAYS.

He's also a massive idiot to think in the Internet age he could get away with something like this.

I'm in on the gay angle conspiracy theory.
Maintaining macho persona with public GF who is really a secret BF?

Re: Ridiculousness: Story of Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend Is a Hoax

His statement:
Quote:
“This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, 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. It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother’s death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life. I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been. In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was. Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I’m looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft.”
And again...I'm not buying it.

Here's the Underwood story--even his college coaches were telling teams not to draft him because he was too fucked-up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demetrius_Underwood

Then I fully expect the Detroit Lions to draft him

Re: Ridiculousness: Story of Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend Is a Hoax

This is about as weird as it gets. As more and more details came out yesterday I was just like what on earth is going on. Notre Dame is obviously playing cover up on something here. The gay secret BF theory is gaining a lot of momentum. Would be a pretty scandalous issue for such a devoutly Catholic University.
