Alleged Manti Te'o Hoax Perpetrator Auditioned for The Voice


The man who one report has claimed was behind the fake girlfriend hoax involving Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o reportedly auditioned for the upcoming season of The Voice -- and may have told the crew a false story about himself.
Us Weekly reports that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo claimed to The Voice producers that he and his cousins, with whom he'd formed a Christian music band, had survived a "massive" car accident in Nevada.
He passed a background check, but given his alleged involvement in the Te'o hoax, a source says, "people now think the sob story is fake."
Tuiasosopo's audition was unsuccessful -- he was not selected by any of the four coaches.
