Notre Dameo learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.
article is a mile long so cliffs:
he and a friend created a fake female profile on numerous sites like twitter and facebook with stolen photos, pretended Te'o met this girl after a game vs. Stanford in 2009 and then started dating. Then throughout 2012 they made up stories about how she got in a car accident, was later diagnosed with Leukemia and passed a few months after that to get media attention.
Was just about to post this. The in-depth article and overwhelming evidence makes it hard to believe anything Manti's family would say.
Goons belong in hockey.
Man that story is spreading like wildfire on Twitter.
Shortly after the USC game ended, ABC showed him walking through the tunnel and passed a family with two children- probably 5 & 7.
As he passed them he looked at the kids and said "awwww sorry" and then laughed. May not sound bad, but his tone would make any parent want to rip the skin off his face. It was hard to tell anyone what an obvious asshole this guy is during all the heisman hype.
This latest story doesn't suprise me. Human trash.

Any chance T'eo and Tuiasosopo are gay and afraid to be open about it?
To each his own IMO, but this is a bizarre story...
Way way way too much info for this to be fake dead spin would be working on this for months it makes sense IMO. If he loved this girl to not go to her funeral is really bad how many people don't go to a loved ones funeral unless the person is a smaller kid not knowing what the deal is.
Yeah, there really aren't words for it. Sheesh.

Just saw this on FB wow
If Deadspin were to slip Tim Tebow into that story somehow the world would explode.
Man. Read through it all.
All i can say is DAFUQ?
Holy cow, is it bad a gay over up was the first thing I thought of too... Cant wait for Te'o's response
Unreal if true. How could anyone think they could get by with such a story?
I pulled this off the ND site....

RT @jdubs88 Manti Te'o has lost thousands of fans in the past 10 minutes but has gained one very prominent one: Lance Armstrong.

This should be fun. RT @BFeldmanCBS: I'm told Notre Dame will have an official comment on the Deadspin Manti Te'o story shortly.
Major image hit that will stick with him his entire career and beyond. This is so bizarre. He just lost millions in endorsments
Oh my goodness. This statement from Notre Dame is so bad. Doesn't jive with the story at all.
They are saying that the girl got close to Manti then got with other people to play a joke on him. Apparently she made up the leukemia story. But Deadspin said she doesn't even exist.
"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. "
Statement from Notre Dame.
