Story of Manti Te’o girlfriend apparently a hoax
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The wrenching story of Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o’s girlfriend dying of leukemia — a loss he said inspired him to play his best all the way to the BCS championship — was dismissed by the school Wednesday as a hoax perpetrated against the linebacker.
Notre Dame said it believes the Heisman Trophy finalist was duped into an online relationship with a woman whose “death” was then faked by the perpetrators of the hoax.
The school made the statement following a lengthy story by Deadspin.com, saying it could find no record that Lennay Kekua ever existed. The website story suggests a friend of Te’o may have carried out the hoax and that the football player may have been in on it — a stunning claim against a widely admired All-American who led the most famed program in college football back to the national championship game for the first time since 1988.
