When everything around the life of Manti Te’o was crumbling with family and personal crises, one person who never left his side was his best friend Robby Toma.
Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist is a roughly two-hour-total documentary that examines the story and aftermath of the Punahou School graduate’s early 2010s rise as a Notre Dame linebacker, fan favorite, and Heisman Trophy finalist while he was simultaneously hooked into a long-distance relationship with a fictional woman, Lennay Kekua.
“The documentary showed us all how strong Manti was and has always been. But the picture of us three playing video games struck a cord. 3 Laie Boyz in the Mid West did it together,” after the show premiered on Netflix, Robby posted on his IG. “This picture is how I will always remember South Bend. Wish you were still here Kona Geezy so you could find the McChickens. NEVER ABOVE YOU, NEVER BELOW YOU, ALWAYS SIDE BY SIDE.”

“I talked to him the night everything kind of unfolded and he was really high in spirits. That’s the kind of person he is, that’s how he was raised, that’s how we all were raised. It was frustrating because of all people I knew the truth because I know Manti better than anyone else,” Robby told Baltimore Sun.
Moreover, he maintained that his friend was a good person who look out for others. “He told me to stay out of the media and that he’ll do it on his own. It was frustrating being his best friend and not being able to help him. You know how it is in the media. It was real bad. It was definitely tough, but he’s a great person,” he said.
