Apparently this guy found some tweets (seen below) by people who knew of the hoax.

Pretty sure Ronaiah Tuiasosopo was the one who controlled/created the character and Manti had no idea. Dude was just a naive idiot.

Just saw who his agent is. It's Tom Condon.

And just to add another layer (even though this story already has more layers of "crazy" than a psychopathic onion) one of the guys from "The Big Lead" says he has two sources that can confirm ESPN has known about the story for ten days, but chose to sit on it.

I don't know that any of the stuff from this latest guy really exonerates him. Even if the girlfriend is made up by Tuiasosopo (as Deadspin already theorized) that doesn't really preclude the notion that Te'o knew about it and/or took part in it.

His own claims about having met her, talking to her on the phone and how devastated he was by her death are pretty damning. Big Lead says they talked to a teammate who figured a long time ago that he was lying but still blames the media for "blowing it up".

In order to claim that he's not a liar, he's gonna have to convince people that he's pretty stupid, so honestly it's kind of a no-win situation for him.
