Manti Te'o Talks

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Manti Te'o is breaking his silence about the shocking girlfriend hoax.

The Notre Dame linebacker sat down for a two and a half hour long interview with ESPN. While he denied having any part in the hoax, he admits he "tailored" his stories so people would think he "met her before she passed away."

He also says a friend, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo has admitted he was behind the persona of Te'o's false girlfriend.

This comes after a shocking revelation this week that his girlfriend who died of leukemia never really existed.
