Ronaiah Tuaisosopo is the alleged mastermind of the Manti Te’o phony girlfriend creation.
[He] has finally come out of hiding … surfacing at his family home in Palmdale, CA on Saturday evening … TMZ has learned.
Ronaiah was wearing a hoodie and tried to hide his face. He also didn’t utter a single word when asked about his role in the hoax.
Just 24 hours before Ronaiah appeared in public, Manti had told ESPN … Ronaiah had reached out to him — confessed to the prank — and apologized.
According to Manti, Ronaiah was the person who created “Lennay Kekua” — who Manti believed was a real person … and “dated” … even though they never met in person.
