Manti Te'o girlfriend's death a hoax


SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame says a story about http://espn.go.com/college-football/player/_/id/517633/manti-teo" rel="nofollow - Manti Te'o 's girlfriend dying, which he said inspired him to play better as he helped the Fighting Irish get to the BCS title game, turned out to be a hoax apparently perpetrated against the linebacker.

The university issued a news release Wednesday after http://deadspin.com/5976517/manti-teos-dead-girlfriend-the-most-heartbreaking-and-inspirational-story-of-the-college-football-season-is-a-hoax" rel="nofollow - Deadspin.com reported it could find no record of Lennay Kekua existing.

The university says that Notre Dame coaches were informed by Te'o and his parents on Dec. 26 that Te'o had been the victim of what appeared to be a hoax. Someone using a fictitious name "apparently ingratiated herself" with Te'o, the school said, then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had died of leukemia.

The university said "the proper authorities" are investigating a "very cruel deception."

On Sept. 12, Te'o learned that his 72-year-old grandmother, Annette Santiago, had died. Te'o said he was told just six hours later that Kekua, had lost her battle with leukemia.

According to Deadspin, the only photos that have been found online that identified Kekua, are actually pictures of another 22-year-old woman. That woman, who was not named in the report, told Deadspin one of those photos likely was shared by her former high school classmate named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo.

Friends and relatives of Tuiasosopo told Deadspin they believe he created Lennay Kekua. Kekua does not have a death certificate, Deadspin.com reported. Stanford, where she reportedly went to school, has no record of anybody by that name.

According to the Deadspin report, Te'o and Tuiasosopo have been in contact via Twitter, including exchanging several friendly messages last summer. A Notre Dame source told ESPN that Te'o was vetted heavily when the school learned in December that Kekua was a hoax, and said he believes Te'o was not involved. But a friend of Tuiasosopo told Deadspin he was quote "80 percent sure" that Te'o participated and did so with publicity in mind.

Te'o issued a statement Tuesday afternoon:

"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."

Te'o is currently training in preparation for the NFL draft at the IMG Institute in Bradenton, Fla. He is No. 8 on Mel Kiper's latest draft board.

Information from The Associated Press and ESPN.com's Mike Fish is included in this report.

I think he knew about it, ...did the ND team officials?

eta: maybe he didn't know about it right away. but as a bf, wouldn't it be weird if you didn't go to your gf's funeral? or have contact w/ the family about it? there's a lot of holes here.

from deadspin.com article

Nov. 28, 2009: Te'o and Kekua meet after Stanford's 45-38 victory over Notre Dame in Palo Alto,

2010-2011: Te'o and Kekua are friends. "She was gifted in music, multi-lingual, had dreams grounded in reality and the talent to catch up to them" (South Bend Tribune). "They started out as just friends," Te'o's father, Brian, told the Tribune in October 2012. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there."

but he just released a statement that said it was a phone/online relationship only

Sept. 11-12, 2012: Te'o's grandmother dies in Hawaii. Later, Kekua dies in California. Or is it the other way around? "Te'o's girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, died Sept. 11 of complications from leukemia. His grandma, Annette Santiago, died after a long illness less than 24 hours later," according to the Sept. 22 South Bend Tribune. No, Annette dies first, according to the Oct. 12 South Bend Tribune. In fact, Lennay lives long enough to express condolences over the death of Annette:

Less than 48 hours later [after Lennay's release from the hospital], at 4 a.m. Hawaii time, Kekua sent a text to Brian and Ottilia, expressing her condolences over the passing of Ottilia's mom, Annette Santiago, just hours before.

Brian awakened three hours later, saw the text, and sent one back. There was no response. A couple of hours later, Manti called his parents, his heart in pieces.

Lennay Kekua had died.

Or does Kekua die three days later ( http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/college/football/ultimate_fighter_PBWzFAFZMEsyGIFvIkounJ" rel="nofollow - New York Post )? Four days ( http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8722085/manti-teo-notre-dame-fighting-irish-wins-walter-camp-player-year" rel="nofollow - ESPN , http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/story/21297539/notre-dame-linebacker-teo-eyes-heisman-after-maxwell-win" rel="nofollow - CBS )?

In any case, according to Te'o's interview with Gene Wojciechowski in a segment aired during the Oct. 6 episode of College GameDay, Lennay's last words to Te'o were "I love you."

Sept. 12, 2012 (morning): Te'o is informed of his grandmother's passing (Sports Illustrated).

Sept. 12, 2012 (afternoon): Te'o is informed of Kekua's passing by her older brother, Koa (Sports Illustrated).

Sept. 15, 2012: Te'o records 12 tackles in leading the Irish to an upset win over Michigan State.

Sept. 22, 2012: Kekua's funeral takes place in Carson, Calif. (The Associated Press puts it in "Carson City, Calif.," which does not exist.) Te'o skips the funeral, http://articles.latimes.com/2012/dec/10/sports/la-sp-1211-dwyre-manti-teo-20121211" rel="nofollow - saying Kekua had insisted that he not miss a game Ermm(Los Angeles Times). Her casket is closed at 9 a.m. Pacific time, http://www.und.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/100412aaa.html" rel="nofollow - according to Te'o . That night, Notre Dame beats Michigan, 13-6, to go to 4-0, the school's best start in a decade. Te'o intercepts two passes. After the game, he says of Lennay: "All she wanted was some white roses. So I sent her roses and sent her two picks along with that." Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly awards the game ball to Lennay Kekua, handing it to Te'o to "take back to Hawaii."

Either way, Te'o is going to have to admit he lied. If he didn't lie about the entire thing, then he at least lied about meeting her in 2009 after a football game, talking on the phone every night, talking to various family members, and whatnot.

He's gonna have to admit he lied about something, so he better go ahead and say he lied about meeting her because he was embarrassed that he 'met' her online. Better do it quick too.

Manti and his father said they met him in 2009 right.

They asked. He dodged the question and said Te'o said they "met" online.

Complete contradiction to what Te'o said about them meeting in 2009 after a football game.

I guarantee some teams will completely take him off their big board. The position he plays makes him a leader of a defense. He'll have NO respect in a locker room, and fans will be pissed if their team drafts him.

He'll get drafted. Too talented (though overrated) not to. But any idea of him being a top 15 pick, and prolly a 1st round pick, is dead.

Sticking Te'o in to replace what Ray Lewis was (emotional leader) would be disatreous in that locker-room.

Te'o was going to be seen as a mid to late 1st round pick anyway. His tape is going to expose his deficiencies as a tackler. He got by on being a leader and good character person. ILB aren't highly valued in the draft. Because of PR and him being a fringe talent, I'm almost willing to bet money that he won't be a 1st round pick when the dust settles.

Better prospects have fallen out of the 1st round.

Raven will rally around him if they like him I don't think this means he can't be a leader.

I don't see the raven passing up on him if he falls in their lap.

We will see how the story unfolds

Story keeps getting better and better. Now a NFL player claims to have MET the girlfriend before.

Cardinals fullback says Lennay Kekua is a real person

January 16, 2013
By http://www.thevictoryformation.com/author/sparty/" rel="nofollow - Dave K

http://www.thevictoryformation.com/2013/01/16/cardinals-fullback-says-lennay-kekua-is-a-real-person/reagan-mauia/" rel="nofollow">Reagan-Mauia Ok, so now we have the biggest twist in the Manti Te’o's girlfriend is a hoax story.

http://deadspin.com/5976517/manti-teos-dead-girlfriend-the-most-heartbreaking-and-inspirational-story-of-the-college-football-season-is-a-hoax" rel="nofollow - Deadspin reported that the story perpetuated by Te’o all season long about the loss of his girlfriend to Leukemia on the same day that his grandmother died, was a hoax. The girlfriend part, his grandma did die, and she was real. Deadspin alludes that Te’o was behind the hoax. Notre Dame, Jack Swarbrick, and Te’o all claimed that Te’o was the one duped. Regardless of who is telling the truth, they all seemed to agree that Lennay Kekua wasn’t a real person. But here is the twist; Arizona Cardinals fullback http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8851033/story-manti-teo-girlfriend-death-apparently-hoax" rel="nofollow - Reagan Maui’a told ESPN that he met her . WHAAAAAAAAAAAT? Maui’a said he met her at a party when he was doing charity work in Samoa.

After the initial meeting, Mauia said he met her at an “after-party” for all of the athletes involved in the camp.

“She was tall,” he said. “Volleyball-type of physique. She was athletic, tall, beautiful. Long hair. Polynesian. She looked like a model … ”

He said it is his understanding that Kekua’s mother is operating her Twitter account. He said he’d never met her mother. When told by a reporter that she apparently might not have existed, Mauia said: “No, she is real.”

So, um, there’s that.

Before fleshing out the whole story though?
Maybe they know something we don't and believe it was unequivocally a hoax that he made up.

I still don't believe the Ravens should pass up on him even though he is a bit hyped to me.

I mean alot of college players lie and steal.

Maybe it's in a different context but they still are great leaders
