Te’o told Couric that Tuiasosopo later called him and explained what he did.
"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.
Te’o said he didn’t say much to Tuiasosopo.
"I just found that everything that I believed to be my reality wasn’t my reality at all," Te’o said.
