Technically yea, I guess that's so, but OTOH
As a public figure... star football player for a team playing for the national championship... then if IF he created this fictitious person in order to either garner sympathy or to deflect criticism or hide a lifestyle even... it becomes a public story, open to speculation and possible ridicule, if he's found to have been lying and deceitful.
It's no skin off my nose and I don't really care... just celebrity gossip. I never knew who he was until I watched the BCS championship.
