Manti Te’o was pretty much embarrassed when it became public that he was ‘dating’ a fake woman. It escalated to empathy, then suspicion when we found out the fake woman was actually a gay man.
But he’s not the only athlete who’s fallen victim to faux love interests. Ray Lewis admitted a share of strange affairs have come up along his journey as a pro-baller.
He told Access Hollywood that it’s embarrassing but guys like them get lots of attention, some unwanted.
“I may have been catfished once or twice,” Lewis said. “When I saw the catfish thing, when he told his story, I just thought it was hilarious that people would do that to people and then I did have to reflect because, like I said, I think I’ve been done once or twice like that.”
