The man who perpetrated the extensive hoax on Manti Te’o is predictably confused about his own sexuality. That’s, like, the first thing in this whole saga we’ve been able to see coming.
Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is gay ... at least he thinks he's gay ... he's not really sure -- at least that's what he told Dr. Phil.
Phil appeared on "Today" this morning ... and dished about his interview with the man behind the Manti Te'o not-really-dead girlfriend hoax.
"Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love," Phil said of Ronaiah.
"I ask him straight up ... was this a romantic relationship with you? And he says, 'Yes.'"
Phil continued ... "I said, are you then, therefore, gay? And he says, 'Well, when you put it that way, yes.'"
Phil says Ronaiah then "caught himself" and said, "I am confused."
We are a bit perplexed ourselves, Ronnie.
Tuiasosopo also said that Te’o was absolutely not involved in the hoax.
Stand by while the buzzer sounds on this guy’s 15 minutes of fame.
