Timothy Poe Breaks Down, Says He Didn't Intend to Lie

by at . Comments

Timothy Poe has apologized once again for the mess he created on America's Got Talent last week. And this time he's done so in between sobs.

The singer - who found himself in boiling hot water following a stutter-filled audition last Monday, the result of which, he claimed during the feature, was a brain injury suffering while in Afghanistan in 2009 - told a Dallas news program over the weekend that he never intended to mislead viewers.

"As everything I said, I believe it wholeheartedly myself," he said. "But I feel like I'm going crazy."

Timothy Poe Interview Still

In light of numerous facts contradicting his tale - such as a photo Poe purported to be of himself overseas actually proving to be a different soldier, and no record of any Purple Heart given out to the aspiring singer for his alleged injury - Poe came clean in an interview a days ago, and has now done so again.

As best he can, that is.

"I really don't know right now what's reality and what's not reality," Poe says on a camera, his fiancee by his side. "I don't feel like I've lied. That's what's driving me crazy, because I truly thought things have happened to me.... I really am sorry."

Poe did serve his country for nine years, that much is not in dispute. But the details of his account very much are. Watch his tearful interview below.

How can he say he didn't intend to lie when he STOLE a picture of another soldier from a website and said it was him? That's intentional! You are an embarrassment to yourself and a disgrace to people who actually do have problems stuttering. Kick his a$$ off the show...he clearly has too many issues to be on such a public show.

Dude even had the audacity to try to studder while crying and apologizing. this is the worst acting performance since Jennifer Lopez starred in Gigli. Even worse, the news lady seemed to be falling for it. This guy is a fraud, a cheat, a conman who now has to backpedal to keep investigations for cheating the charities that helped him. I dont remember..I dont know what is real...give me a break. This guy is like that one girl who killed the lottery winner, got caught trying to move his body.
You cant get a conscious AFTER you get caught....but some epople will try to keep lying despite to cover their tracks. Cheaters exposed.
I bet FOX NEWS will hire him as an entertainment consultant for ratings

It's all really sad....Tim Poe could have just said he had served in the U.S. military and then sang. That would have been enough for everyone to hear. Instead Tim gave us this big SOB story...and Whamo....hurt alot of American vets. Whether he actually believed the SOB story or what....It has cost him because he could have gone far on America's Got Talent and not have this huge mess of controversary overshadowing his singing talent!!!
