Manti Te’o: I’m Not Gay (VIDEO)


By Michael Lewittes



Manti Te’o told Katie Couric he’s not gay, despite rumors he used fake girlfriend Lennay Kekua to cover up his sexual orientation.

Asked whether he’s homosexual during Thursday’s much-hyped interview on “Katie,” the Notre Dame linebacker responded, “No. Far from it. Far from that.”


Te’o, who says he lied about his supposed dead girlfriend only after he found out she never existed, also shared a Twitter message from alleged hoax perpetrator Ronaiah Tuiasosopo.

The message reads, “I completely accept the consequences to the pain I’ve caused & it’s important that you know the truth before anyone else.”
