    Re: I'm not sure who is his girlfriend.

    "I'm not sure who is his girlfriend" means you are uncertain about which woman is his girlfriend. On the other hand, "I'm not sure who his girlfriend is" can mean the same, but it can also mean you are certain about which woman it is, but not about her identity.
