As if the Manti story couldn’t get any worse – it just did. Manti’s girlfriend is actually Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the originator of the hoax who is—-actually a guy impersonating Lennay Kekua.
Te’o spent hours on the phone with Ronaiah – there never was a girl involved. What makes this more bizarre is that others talked to her/him including Robby Toma and Manti’s Mormon Bishop. Apparently they also thought he/she was a girl.
This is so weird that no one could really understand how this fraud could possibly continue for so long,
It’s bad enough that Manti got scammed but that he spent hours and hours talking to a guy and not a girl. All of this is just laughing stock and will follow Manti forever – you just have to feel sorry for this guy. The name he was so proud of is now just a joke.
Nothing else to say here – just weird and really sad.
