Things Get Extra Confusing In The Manti Te'o Girlfriend Hoax

We previously mentioned that a heartbreaking story about a Notre Dame football player, Manti Te'o's girlfriend dying was a total hoax.

His "girlfriend" Lennay Marie Kekua was actually someone he met online and began an intimate online relationship with.

Then it turned out this person never died and possibly never existed.

…or did they??

No one knows for sure whether Manti was pranked, learned of the hoax then just went with it or was in on it all along as a publicity stunt.

Now an NFL player who played for the Arizona Cardinals last season said he actually met this Kekua person in June 2011!

He said:

"This was before her and Manti. I don’t think Manti was even in the picture, but she and I became good friends. We would talk off and on, just checking up on each other kind of thing. I am close to her family. When she was going through the loss of her father, I was — I offered a comforting shoulder and just someone to bounce her emotions off. That was just from meeting her in Samoa."

Okay, this has either got to be false or just another person who happens to have the same name.

We already know that's not her real picture on her twitter.

We just hope the truth comes out soon!
