(WVEE) – The tale of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s [[ MAN-tye  TAY-oh’s ]] deceased girlfriend is taking a weird twist.  Someone tweeted late last night with a Twitter handle that once was associated with Lennay Kekua.

She said the “myths” about the story will be addressed Thursday.

The Twitter account has not been verified.

Sports website Deadspin.com published a piece calling the whole thing, including the very existence of Te’o’s girlfriend, a hoax.

That’s the one he said died around the same time as his real-life grandmother while his team headed toward the BCS National Championship Game.

Yesterday, the university said he was the victim of an “elaborate hoax.”

Te’o said he was embarrassed that he was the victim of a “sick joke.”

He attempted to clear things up by saying he’d developed an emotional relationship with a woman he met online.
