And get this: she actually exists!

Alexandra del Pilar and Manti Te'o

TMZ has uncovered evidence, in the form of anonymous quotes; Twitter posts; and, most damning of all, photos, that make it appear as if Te'o struck up a relationship with del Pilar - a 21-year old student at St. Mary's College in Indiana - some time in mid-November.

Why is this significant?

Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.

That was the word that came flowing out of Lance Armstrong's mouth in his much-hyped sit-down with Oprah Winfrey tonight, as the disgraced cyclist admitted in multiple one-word answers that YES, he used performance enhancing drugs in all seven Tour de France races he won.

From EPO to testosterone, cortisone and human growth hormone, Armstrong confirmed that he took it all, despite numerous brazen and bullying denials over the years.

Why come clean now?

Well, this was inevitable.

With the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax going viral, online users across Twitter and other social media networks have taken up Te'oing, a play on Tebowing - and Kaepernicking - that features individuals posing with... well, nobody.

To wit:

Te'oing

Te'o is expected to address the media later this afternoon and give his side of what has grown into a surreal story.

Did he play any role in inventing Lennay Kekua as his girlfriend? Was he completely duped by Internet idiots who "Catfished" him online? Might he be gay and used this story as an alibi?

So many questions. So many confusing answers no matter where the truth lies.

Manti Te'o has spoken out about the Lennay Kekua death hoax, as it's now been verified that the Notre Dame linebacker was never dating a Stanford student by that name last year.

But the Heisman Trophy finalist is denying reports that he played a role in duping America, instead releasing a statement that says he fell victim to someone on the Internet.

Manti Te'o statement

"This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her," Te'o said.

"To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.

In one of the stranger, more elaborate death hoaxes to hit the Internet and way beyond, a new report suggests Notre Dame star linebacker Manti Te’o's girlfriend did not die this year, as had been previously reported.

  • Kekua's funeral took place on September 22, with Te’o not in attendance and with the above message displayed across television screens, supposedly proving that this was in accordance with his late girlfriend's wishes.
