Manti Te'o made hour-long phone calls, sent flowers to fake girlfriend

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o reportedly conducted numerous phone calls that lasted over an hour with someone claiming to be Lennay Kekua, and sent dozens of flowers to her funeral.

There are a few more twists and turns in the Manti Te'o situation, all of them just a little strange. Was Te'o really just being duped all along by his supposed friend Ronaiah Tuiasosopo regarding the existence of fake girlfriend Lennay Kekua, or was he in on it? Here are some new pieces of information.

ESPN's Jeremy Schapp was provided a source on the Te'o phone records. Here are the significant pieces of information.

1000 calls were made to and from a phone number in the 661 area code. That 661 phone number supposedly was Kekua's, and 110 of those calls went on for over an hour. Who was Te'o calling for all of that time?

Additionally, a receipt was obtained by the New York Daily News from 1-800-FLOWERS.com after the supposed death of Kekua . Teo was charged for the purchase of 36 stems of premium white roses to "Kainoa Kekua" from the address of Manti Te'o in South Bend. There was also a pretty deep message from Te'o to Kekua.
