The more I read, the more Im 100% positive Manti Te'o was actively involved. The OP's original post mention that Te'o and Tuiasosopo knew eacother in real life. Coincidently, Tuiasosopo made the fake account yet knows Te'o in real life and even gets invited the games by Te'o. Yet the article tries to convince us that one night Tuiasosopo had a change of heart and magically turned against Te'o over USC? Absolute bullsh*t. Tuiasosopo created the fake woman in 2008, Te'o joined Notre Dame in 2009. The fake woman already would have existed before Te'o even went to Notre Dame.
These two dudes were obviously in cohorts with eachother, and both Tuiasosopo and Te'o probably decided one day to use the fake woman WHO ALREADY HAD BEEN CREATED before Te'o came to Notre Dame to create this sob story hoax. On top of that, the article claims that Tuiasosopo was on twitter bragging about conning Te'o. But all of the dates on the tweets are from December 2012 till now, why no tweets from 2011, 2010, or 2009 except for one promoting the movie? The fact that the tweets are all from December 2012 is important because this is around the time Notre Dame first started learning about the hoax and around the time that everyone involved would have known that the jig was coming apart. Manti Te'o knowing that the jig was up, could have easily been in cohorts with Tuiasosopo and told him to go on twitter and protend to have some conflict or friction with Te'o. Meanwhile, these two suckers knew eachother all along but, "Te'o didnt know". Yeah right.
at this point much more likely that Te'o actually got fooled by Tuiasosopo but when Lennay "died", exaggerated the details to save himself from the embarrassment and spruced up his relationship with her for more media attention and personal gain.
