The former NFL linebacker is still a topic of discussion, thanks to a new Netflix show about him.
In the Netflix show, Manti talks about his wife, Jovi Nicole Engbino.
Their relationship is a source of controversy, as they are often spotted in photos together.
It’s unclear why, but this is the first time Te’o publicly commented on his wife.
Manti Te’o is a 31-year-old Samoan-Hawaiian football linebacker.
He played college football at the University of Notre Dame and received All-American honours.
He also won eight national awards during his time at Notre Dame.
Manti Te’o has since played for the San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints, and Chicago Bears. He is currently a free agent.
In early 2012, Te’o met Kekua Te’o, a Stanford student, after a Notre Dame game.
The two of them exchanged cell phone numbers, and eventually became engaged.
The two married in early 2012, after Te’o visited Kekua in the hospital.
He was the only NFL player to visit his girlfriend while she was in a coma.
Then, the football player began chatting with Lennay Kekua on Facebook.
She seemed nice, and there were plenty of pictures on her profile.
Te’o’s family members recalled talking to her.
The two eventually formed an intense relationship.
Luckily, catfishing was rare back then, so this alleged relationship wasn’t fake.
While Manti Teo was initially confused about who Lennay Kekua was, it quickly became apparent that the connection was genuine.
Manti Teo was a standout football player in high school and was on track to earn a full football scholarship at Notre Dame.
However, after the scandal broke, the former NFL star changed his name to a woman.
The documentary, “Untold: The Girlfriend That Didn’t Exist,” follows his journey as a woman and shares his thoughts on the topic.
Manti Teo now has a family and is a married man.
He was once a standout linebacker at Notre Dame and became famous for his football skills.
But his girlfriend, Prince, and other family members became involved in the story.
And while the world was shocked by this scandal, Manti Teo’s story is the one that has inspired many in the media.
During his time at Notre Dame, Manti Teo was a highly decorated college football player, earning eight national awards.
After his college career, Te’o was drafted by the San Diego Chargers and played for three years.
He later signed with the New Orleans Saints and later signed a two-year contract.
In January 2021, Te’o joined the Chicago Bears practice squad.
He stayed with the team until January 2021, when he became a free agent.
