Hey, remember Manti Te'o? If you remember correctly, Te'o was known before joining the San Diego Chargers for getting hoaxed by a friend into relationship with a fake girlfriend whose death made headlines and the most compelling narrative of the 2012 college football season.
Well, Te'o has laid low since Deadspin revealed that his acquaintance Ronaiah Tuiasosopo orchestrated an entire rake relationship over the internet because he was secretly in love with the linebacker. But on Tuesday, the Big Lead speculated that Te'o is now in a relationship with Instagram model Jovi Nicole. Nicole recently made her Instagram profile private, but we managed to save some snapshots:
Of course, the Big Lead's evidence is two "lovey-dovey" videos posted two months apart, so take this report with a grain of salt. But we'll say this much: Even if their relationship is merely a fantasy, Nicole looks very, very real from where we're sitting.
