But last week Deadspin.com revealed that the girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, never existed. The photos that were supposedly of Kekua are actually of O'Meara. Te'o says he is a victim of the hoax.
Tuiasosopo has yet to speak publicly about the allegations, but O'Meara said he has apologized to her.
“The past five years, he has literally been stalking my Facebook and stealing my photos,’’ O’Meara said. “Ronny has called and not only confessed, but he has also apologized. But I don’t think there’s anything he could say to me that would fix this.’’
