The man believed to be responsible for creating Manti Te’o's fake girlfriend may finally address the entire controversy. Ronaiah Tuiasosopo has been hiding out at his parents’ home in Palmdale, Calif., since news broke on Wednesday that he allegedly created Lennay Kekua and duped the Notre Dame linebacker into having a relationship with a woman who didn’t exist. Peter Navy Tuiasosopo, Ronaiah’s uncle, reportedly told The Associated Press that the family has hired an attorney and that his nephew may address the hoax. He says the family plans to hold a meeting to discuss how and when they would address matters. “We want to do it right,” Peter Navy Tuiasosopo told the AP. “We’re just a family of faith. The family is holding up well. They’re holding up the way I would expect a family to. This is a storm.” The AP says the family had a service at the Oasis Christian Church on Sunday, though Ronaiah was not in attendance.
