VERIFIED INFO.... Ronaiah Tuiasosopo was always called by his friends in HS as Lennay Kekua after admitting he was indeed gay....

Probably felt compelled to mention his GF passing away from cancer since it would seem weird if he didn't.
Where are you getting December 6 that he found out about it? I thought it was December 26?

Didn't he give the Jim Rome interview after he definitely allegedly knew he'd been scammed?

At a bare minimum he is both dumb and, uh, opportunistic.

Notre Dame found out Dec 26. Manti received a call from "Lennay" on December 6th. I think this came up in press conference yesterday.

"She" called him up during the ESPN Awards. That's when he first became suspicious but it wasn't until the holiday break that he spoke to his parents/ND about it.

How far did Lennay live from George Glass? Pretty sure they were both in NoCal.

Oh yeah. Dude probably found out he was duped and then said "**** it" and soaked up the publicity and pity assuming if it had stood uncovered that long it never would be.

Re: Manti Te'o: Epic trolling from imaginary dead people ITT

Manti allegedly finds out girlfriend is fake on December 6th, gets on camera on the 8th and talks about how he lost his girlfriend to cancer.

Also: "I don't like cancer at all." Way to take a stand, Manti.

Re: Manti Te'o: Epic trolling from imaginary dead people ITT

Any interview he does will be contingent on the interviewer never implying he had anything to do with it. They aren't going to let him sit down and get grilled for an hour with the draft looming.

The interviews with NFL teams on the other hand...

At a minimum, he was irresponsible, naive, stupid, and dishonest during and after any "hoax". He either actively spread or allowed to be spread tons of false or misleading information without taking any steps to correct any of it. Being "catfished" does almost nothing to explain how Te'o ran with the whole story as it became a national media occurrence.

There was also a charity in her name that raised $3,000. IANAL, but it seems like this could be an angle for a police investigation, no?
