Dr. Phil: Te’o was victim of girlfriend hoax
Question of the Day
“Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love,” McGraw said.
“He said, `Well, when you put it that way, yes.’ Then he caught himself and said, `I am confused,’” McGraw said.
Te'o said in the interview with Couric that Tuiasosopo tweeted him a direct message on Jan. 16, saying he had been behind the hoax. The message read: “I completely accept the consequences to the pain I’ve caused & it’s important that you know the truth before anyone else.”
“He didn’t say why. He just explained that he just wanted to help people and that was his way of helping people. Of being someone that he wasn’t and trying to connect with somebody on a different level to help them out,” Te'o said.
“I just found that everything that I believed to be my reality wasn’t my reality at all,” Te'o said.
