Why Manti Te’o ‘needed to reveal’ details of catfish scandal

Manti Te’o is finally speaking in public on the catfishing scandal that took over his life 10 years ago in order to “heal,” the linebacker said in an interview.

Te’o told “CBS Mornings” when he was on the Saints in 2017, teammate Cam Jordan took a bunch of players to a Jay-Z concert, where the rap star opened with, “you cannot heal what you don’t reveal.”

“It may have just been some random words to everybody, but for me at that time, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I needed to reveal it,” Te’o said.

“I challenged myself at this time that if anybody asked about it or had questions about it, I would be open and I would have those hard conversations, and I started to feel the strength that I would get from talking about it.”
