Man suspected in Manti Te’o hoax says he fell in love
Another twist today in the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax: The alleged mastermind behind it all says he fell deeply, romantically in love with Te’o.
Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is confessing these feelings to Dr. Phil during an interview that will air on his show Thursday.
Tuiasosopo also admitted to being gay, then backtracked, saying he’s confused.
He also confirmed that Te’o “absolutely, unequivocally” had no role in creating the hoax.
