Manti Te’o’s Fake Girlfriend Also Pursued Louisville Guard Peyton Siva

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

The Manti Te’o, Lennay Kekua, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo love triangle – or I suppose whatever you want to fake label a two-sided shape for this instance because one of those three sides to the triangle doesn’t exist – just took another turn down insane avenue.

Apparently, Kekua, or at this point it seems Tuiasosopo, tweeted at Louisville guard Peyton Siva back in March of 2012, specifically the day after the  Cardinals beat New Mexico to advance to the Sweet 16.

“When you comin to Ca bruh? I saw your pops end of last year,” tweeted @lovalovaloveYOU at Siva, a fellow Samoan who is from Seattle, Washington. Siva never responded to the advances by the model/volleyball playing looking Kekua turned singer/sociopath or accomplice or whatever we’re calling Tuiasosopo, mainly because Rick Pitino has banned his players from using Twitter, but probably also because Siva didn’t trust getting picked up by some random Twitter girl.

Deadspin, who broke the story of Te’o’s imaginary dead girlfriend last week, compiled a bunch of tweets sent out by the @lovalovaloveYOU account – and all other handles that Kekua/Tuiasosopo changed it to after that – on Tuesday, and several other tweets sent out to collegiate athletes were exposed as well.

I’m not going to play investigator, I hardly even want to spectate, but this story seems too weird, and is only getting weirder. I can’t fathom that Te’o was duped this badly, especially when he’s said repeatedly that he’s met “Kekua.” But one thing’s for sure, it isn’t Peyton Siva’s problem.
