One of the best internet stories of all time happened back in 2012 when Manti Te’o, then a award-winning linebacker for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, went viral for a story about how devasated he was when his girlfriend, Lennay Marie Kekua, died in the run-up to the team’s loss in the BCS National Championship Game.

Te’o, who finished second in the Heisman Trophy race that year, was the center of attention in the college football world for the poignant way the superstar was handling his girlfriend’s tragic death from leukemia.

There was just one (big) problem. Deadspin (R.I.P.) did some digging and found out that Lennay Kekua didn’t actually exist.

Turns out the linebacker had been big-time catfished (by a guy) and then continued to lie about it.

Like I said, it was one of the best internet stories of all time. It truly was the gift that kept on giving.

Fast forward to 2019 and Manti Te’o, now 28 and with six seasons in the NFL under his belt (he is currently unsigned), actually got himself a real-life girlfriend he’s reportedly been dating since 2016 named Jovi Nicole Engbino.

And seeing how she has made them very Instagram offical this year, it looks like things are getting pretty serious.

“It’s a forever thing πŸ’˜,” Engbino wrote alonside a photo of the couple.

Engbino lists herself on Instagram as a microblade artist, a beauty consultant, and a fitness coach at the Point Loma Sports Club in San Diego, where Te’o played from 2013 to 2016. She is followed on the social media platform by Johnny Manziel’s ex-wife Bre Tiesi, so she’s also got that going for her, which is nice.

πŸ‘B O O T Y GAINS!πŸ‘These #gluteworkouts are ESSENTIAL for growing that πŸ‘! Plain and simple. If you want size, you gotta add weight! How do you know if you need to add weight to the bar?! β€’ 1. Are you hitting a progress plateau? 2. Is the exercise easy by the last repetition? 3. Leaning out instead of growing? …add weight! On another note, NEVER sacrifice form just to lift heavier!!! If you are wondering how your form is, ask your fitness coach! Nothing makes me happier than a client who kills their deadlifts or glute thrust with excellent form 🀀 Lastly, the key to success is to focus on GOALS not obstacles! So work hard and the results WILL followπŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ”₯ #inspireyourdamnself #shredzarmy #gymshark #gluteworkout #youareentirelyuptoyou #buildingbooties #strongwomen #buffbunnycollection #1upnutrition #1stphorm
