Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend ‘Lennay Kekua’ to release statement via Twitter; Updated

As Twitchy reported, the social media world is buzzing over the news that Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s beloved girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, never actually existed. Last night, the now-infamous @LennayKay Twitter account sent out this message:

https://twitter.com/LennayKay/status/291753867438325760

“Truths and myths”? This could be interesting.

Update:

The original @LennayKay account was suspended and re-opened yesterday:

It’s unclear as to whether the account is being manned by the person originally behind the hoax.

We will continue to monitor this story and update with developments.
