The more we learn, the stranger this gets!
Manti Te'o is the college football star who was the victim (we think) in an elaborate hoax to make him think he had an online girlfriend.
What's come out so far is that his girlfriend who "died" didn't die at all and wasn't even a girl!
Ronaiah Tuiaosopo is apparently the mastermind behind everything.
The 22-year-old is involved in acting and singing and was president of his high school drama club.
So he had the skills to pull off being another person.
His lawyer said:
"This wasn’t a prank to make fun. It was establishing a communication with someone… It was a person with a troubled existence trying to reach out and communicate and have a relationship. He’s torn by this. He didn’t mean for anyone to be hurt. Anything that he has done, he has apologized to those he could apologize to."
What's crazy is that Manti actually spoke with Ronaiah on the phone before!
How did he not know that Ronaiah was a guy??
Maybe this Ronaiah has a future in acting!
We just can't wait until all the truth comes out and everyone knows exactly what is going on.
