The whole Manti Te'o death hoax situation is getting weirder by the day. Now, the man behind it all is seeking professonal help from a mental health professional.
According to Radar Online, the family of Roniah Tuiasosopo—the man who allegedly tricked Notre Dame star Manti Te'o into believing he was his leukemia-stricken online girlfriend Lennay Kekua—called on Dr. Charles Sophy to his home on Sunday night for a three hour meeting, concerning his overall mental health.
According to a family source, “There are concerns for Roniah’s mental health right now,” and that “Roniah absolutely maintains that Manti had absolutely nothing to do with the hoax and that he had no idea the woman didn’t exist and was made up by Roniah. Manti is the true victim in all of this and that’s weighing heavily on Roniah.”
Around 9 pm on Sunday night, Sophy, a board certified psychiatrist, was spotted going into Roniah’s house in Palmdale, where he lives with his father and didn’t leave until after midnight.
Hopefully this can all be over so Manti can get back to dominating the football field.
