The Manti Te’o dead fake girlfriend story just took another bizarre turn.
The New York Daily News is reporting that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the alleged person behind the hoax, was on the other end of endless phone calls when Te’o believed he was speaking with the made up Lennay Kekua.
Tuiasosopo’s lawyer, Milton Grimes, told the Daily News: “Come on, Hollywood does it all the time. People can do that.”
If Te’o was not in on the hoax, we imagine his reaction to this latest news will be a lot like Jim Carey’s in the movie, Ace Venture: Pet Detective, when he finds out Lois Einhorn is actually Ray Finkle.
