Throughout the college football season, Notre Dame linebacker MANTI TE'O has shared the story about how he lost his girlfriend, 22-year-old Lennay Kekua, to leukemia back in September. But as it turns out, this girl didn't die . . . because she NEVER EXISTED. Manti insists he didn't make it up. Later yesterday, he released a statement admitting that . . . HE was DUPED, and that someone had played a "sick joke" on him. He said, quote, "This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time . . .I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating . . . I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been." The whole story is crazy...check out the Dead Spin article on it:
Based on this crazy hoax involving Manti Te’o… Have you or someone you know ever fallen in love with a fake person? What happened? Here are the texts we got:
My mom was duped into thinking she met wrestler Kevin Nash online.....turned our to be an ex neighbor. I'm Dylan from oak harbor.
My ex's dad sent $5000 to his "GF" in some other country so she could move here and they could get married, needless to say she never showed up... Idiot
Ya, I fell in love with a fake person. She kept it up for months. I only date men now, they're easier to catch in their lies ;) ~Christine~
My room mate's brother paid thousands for a chat service to talk to a girl that he fell in love with and she ended up not being a real person
Pajiba.com, a pop culture website, compiled a list of the Most Re-watchable Movies of the Modern Era. The site states that films that fall under the “re-watchable” umbrella are the films we own on DVD, and yet, the same films we will watch edited for TV, even though our unspoiled copies sit on the shelf next to that television. They are our comfort movies. Number one on their list is The Princess Bride.
