Described as "emotional and deep," the sit-down reportedly took place after Tuiasosopo and Dr. Phil watched the Manti Te'o interview with Katie Couric, during which the linebacker denied any role in the scheme.

Te'o has said Tuiasosopo Tweeted him an apology for orchestrating the hoax, while insiders tell TMZ he did so simply to get close to Manti.

Ronaiah's attorney, meanwhile, claims his client was the one to actually voice Lenny Kekua in every phone call with Te'o.

The Dr. Phil interview will mark Tuiasosopo's first public comments on the complicated, sordid topic.
