Manti Te'o Not Yet Ready To Discuss Girlfriend Story Publicly
Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o "will apparently wait a little longer before publicly speaking to the media about his bizarre story" involving fictitious girlfriend Lennay Kekua. Te'o "had been expected to appear on television this afternoon with ESPN's Jeremy Schaap in a one-on-one interview" arranged by his representatives at CAA. But the Chicago Tribune's Brian Hamilton today tweeted that the plan had been "scrapped." An ESPN spokesperson said, "We never announced we had an interview ... we are pursuing one like every other media outlet" (STARADVERTISER.com, 1/17).
