EXCLUSIVE

Alexandra del Pilar and Manti Te'o

11:49 AM PT -- New photos have surfaced showing Manti and Alexandra sitting on Santa's lap together sometime around Christmas. 

Alex also posted a photo on November 16, in which she thanked Manti for giving her a couple of leis, which she hung in her car.

The dates are consistent with the story Manti is telling friends.

Manti Te'o quietly began dating an actual living, breathing female human being ... shortly after he learned "Lennay Kekua" had died from cancer ... and the rebound chick is HOT ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Manti tell us ... the Notre Dame star met Alexandra del Pilar the weekend of November 10 -- when Notre Dame played Boston College.

Alexandra, 21, is a student at St. Mary's College in Indiana -- which is close to Notre Dame.

We're told Alexandra and Manti dated for nearly 2 months, but broke up recently.  

There are rumors swirling that Manti created a fictitious GF to take the pressure off him from teammates and others who felt he should be dating, but his relationship with a real woman calls those rumors into doubt.

Everything here is true except for when they met. ADP is a townie and had all summer to try to hook up with as many athletes as she could. You can look at her twitter and other football players to see them together earlier. Attention whore whos banged half the campus so could see her playing along for anything though

Actually, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo came out and admitted they created her as a prank on him because he couldn't get a girl.

Way to make up fake lies TMZ....

ARE YOU KIDDING, TMZ? This is the 15th story about this guy in less than 2 days. Why are you so obsessed? Why don't you start a new site for SPORTS gossip? This is ridiculous.

TMZ, Nearly 1/2 of all the comments here are begging you to stop reporting on this guy. ENOUGH is enough! I'd rather hear what Linds or Kimye are up to!

Maybe Ronaiah and Manti are in a secret relationship with each other and this was all a cover up that backfired. Stranger things have happened. Most people only go through such a huge lie over love or money. This is a very intriguing story.

I can not believe you would drag this innocent girl into this mess. I think you really have to have no sense of decency or heart to affect a person in this way. On top of this who cares if he lied? Why on earth does it matter. Politicians lie all the time... One of the greatest presidents in our life time lied and we didn't impeach him, we didn't care. Who cares. Leave this damn story out of the news and move on to something that matters like the kardashians or some trashy show that you may cover....
