TMZ is reporting today that Manti Te’o had a real girlfriend, Alexandra del Pilar, and dated her shortly after learning that his catfish girlfriend had died of leukemia. Pilar is a student at the all-girls school St. Mary’s College, which is across the road from Notre Dame. A Busted Coverage investigation has resulted in the above photo of Manti and del Pilar enjoying the Christmas season (photo was uploaded December 18), which was also still around the time that Te’o was pushing the fake girlfriend story. Notre Dame says Te’o told them about the fake girlfriend December 26. It’s unclear when Te’o and del Pilar began dating, but we do know from this tweet that Manti was making her car smell good in mid-November. We also know that del Pilar was at the BCS game in Miami.
