Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend really racked up his cell phone bill

Taylor Bigler Entertainment Editor

Manti Te’o reportedly spent more than 500 hours on the phone with the person he believed was his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.

Of course, Kekua never existed, so he wasted a lot of valuable Anytime Minutes™ for calls made to someone pretending to be her.

According to ESPN, between May 11, 2012 and Oct. 12, 2012 — the day Kekua allegedly died from leukemia – there were approximately 1,000 calls to and from a phone number with a 661 area code — what Te’o thought was his girlfriend’s phone number.

There were reportedly over 100 calls that lasted more than an hour — that’s more than 6,000 minutes he spent on the phone with a fake girlfriend who was on her fake deathbed.
