Manti Te'o has finally decided to speak about the hoax that has grabbed headlines this week – that of his online girlfriend that allegedly died of leukemia.
"Two guys and a girl are responsible for the whole thing. [...] I don't know [who they are]. According to Ronaiah, Ronaiah's one," he says.
The player brought proof to his interview, in the form of tweets from Ronaiah, in which she apologizes for the incident.
Te'o admits to stretching the truth just a tad, and intentionally leaving the impression that he has met Lennay in person, instead of just chatting with her online.
