Ronaiah Tuiasosopo

House Call

From Celebrity Shrink

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo got a visit from a world famous psychiatrist last night ... a guy who's worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Paris Hilton ... TMZ has learned.

The shrink to the stars is Dr. Charles Sophy -- a high-ranking official with the Los Angeles Dept. of Children and Family Services.

Sophy was involved in the Michael Jackson child molestation case, the Paris Hilton jail saga (when she was suffering from panic attacks) and counseled Taylor Armstrong during her split with her husband.

But last night, Sophy appeared at the Tuiasosopo family home in Palmdale, CA ... and though he wouldn't say why he was there, it's obvious his visit is connected to the drama surrounding the Manti Te'o hoax.

When we asked Dr. Sophy if his visit was in connection to a TV show -- the doc told us, "You know I can't discuss anything."

As for Ronaiah, he has yet to speak to the media about the hoax -- but Manti says he's already called him privately and confessed to everything.

Shrink? Now theyre gonna say that Tuiasosopo is mentally ill and has no knowledge of what he's doing...to try to get him out of anymore humiliation or maybe civil lawsuit. Really??! I say might as well just put him in the asylum...hahaha he'll have a lot of Lennays there

Cut the guy some slack. What's there to do in Palmdale? The only thing good is that it is a few hours away from Vegas.

What better way to setup a defense if the ends up getting sued!

How else can they get out of this unless they create their own 'tragedy' - a perfect ploy to get attention and deflect responsibility.
