NFL | Manti Te'o acknowledges lying about girlfriend

Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o said in a television interview that he briefly lied about his online girlfriend after discovering she didn't exist. Te'o said he didn't lie about the hoax until December, believing Lennay Kekua had died of cancer. Te'o received a phone call in December from a woman saying she was Kekua, whom he believed had died in September. "Now I get a phone call on Dec. 6, saying that she's alive and then I'm going be put on national TV two days later. And to ask me about the same question. You know, what would you do?" Te'o said. The linebacker maintained that he had no part in creating the hoax.
