That, reports USA Today, is one of the reasons why Te'o's parents will join him with Katie Couric at an undisclosed time and place this week for the first on-camera interview since we told you about his fake girlfriend. USA Today's source—a person "with knowledge of the planned interview"—says that Te'o has been advised "simply to tell the truth."
