I think the latest that I heard was that he was duped into an solely online relationship with a woman who apparently faked a death, then he embellished this relationship for whatever reasons to make it sound like they had met and that he was mourning her death. He later found out that she was alive, and apparently kept the whole thing going - saying that she was his girlfriend, that she had died. I found the "investigative journalism" a bit over the top. He's a football player - I don't need to know the timeline of the hoax he was entangled in. I feel sorry for how the media has treated him, and although he was a victim of this woman's lies, to some extent he is responsible for trying to magnify his public image based on someone he hadn't even actually met, apparently.
Thanks for responding, but there have been some major developments since you read the story.
For one thing, the issue involves not a woman and a man, but a cruel hoax that a man played on this college football player for Notre Dame University.
Notre Dame University actually led the investigation regarding the issue impacting this football star at the University. It involved a man who gathered a woman's photos based on false pretenses, and subsequently fabricated a longtime running hoax in acting as an online woman of a fabricated name, and the unsuspecting woman's photos.
The online "relationship" included fabricated phone calls as well in which the football player was involved. He did not ever met anyone, but considered this fabricated woman as with girlfriend.
