Diane O’Meara Speaks On Her Photos Being Used In Te’o Hoax
The woman whose face is behind the twitter account of what was believed to be Manti Te’o’s girlfriend has finally spoken out.
Diane O’Meara was on NBC’s ‘Today Show’ and said that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo issued her an apology for using her images on the page following the Deadspin report which broke the whole story open. The twitter page was for the very unreal Lennay Kekua–the fabricated girlfriend who catfished Manti.
O’Meara is actually a 23-year-old marketing executive from Los Angeles, she’s never even met Manti. She said that Tuiasosopo has been stalking her online for a period of 5 years stealing her images.The two attended the same high school.
Roaniah Tuiasosopo has yet to issue any public statements as details of what may or may not have really happened are just now starting to be somewhat deciphered.
