Notre Dame star linebacker Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend “Lennay Kekua” may have hoaxed other unsuspecting suitors.
“Catfish” movie director and actor Ariel Schulman told “Good Morning America” today that he believes there may have been “a few other people duped by the fake Lennay character.”
Schulman and his brother Nev Schulman have been looking into the elaborate scam and claim to be corresponding with various players involved. They have come to believe that there were “a lot of other people that she was corresponding with before and maybe even during her relationship [with Te’o].”
Nev Schulman was the subject of the 2010 movie “Catfish,” which spawned the TV series, because he himself was sucked in by an Internet pretender — or a “catfish” — who built an elaborate fake life.
