There has to be another woman or like someone else said the evil kid has a killer girl voice.
Apparently Teo isn't gay. Read the article...

being gay and trying to hide it.
Sounds like Tuiasosopo is about to get undressed publicly as a scam artist/pathological liar who was desperate to get notoriety. Teo was naive, but it's sounding more like he was conned and then too embarrassed to publicly admit he was conned.
quote:where does brian teo fit in in all of this? supposedly was texted by the fake g/f about the actual death, wanted to get to know his potential daughter in law. is he in on it? did manti troll his dad, too? did they both get trolled by ronaiah?
This... I still think there's a small chance Te'o was involved in the plotting, but I'd bet he's just a small time liar.
quote:so this was all concocted over a 4 year span to hit up te'o for some cash as soon as he went pro?!?!?!
Everyone is missing the obvious reason why Teo was targeted by this scam artist, along with several other Polynesian / Samoan players, many of whom are Mormons.
The scam artist wants money, usually to pay for "medical bills" from a recent car accident or surprising, unexpected diagnosis or other misfortune. This is the unspoken, implied loss, very obvious from inter
The Samoan / Polynesian angle is interesting too, similar to the cultural affinity or manipulation
So if it turns out the Manti and his buddy trolled us all, do we "respect" them for their work or are we pissed?
quote:i highly suspect manti is gay, and hes been hiding behind all of this b/c he desperately doesnt want people to know his real secret. if thats the case, i feel awful for him and the burden hes carried a long time now. b/c of his profession, being honest isnt an easy solution.
Manti is still trolling... I guess I respect the balls it took keep this farce alive for as long as he did.
so this was all concocted over a 4 year span to hit up te'o for some cash as soon as he went pro?!?!?!
