Ronaiah Tuiasosopo

Performs 'Lennay' Voice

On 'Dr. Phil'

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo
performed his "Lennay Kekua" voice for Dr. Phil ... re-performing the same voicemails he left for Manti Te'o ... but from behind a curtain.

Dr. Phil gave Ronaiah the curtain because Tuiasosopo said he felt uncomfortable doing it in public ... and the curtain gave him a false sense of privacy he needed to get back into character.

During the episode that airs today, Tuiasosopo not only read the voicemails ... but also called a producer for the show on the phone ... simulating the same conditions of the original voicemails he left Te'o.

Experts for the show concluded the voices were a match.  

Tuiasosopo also revealed he was molested as a child ... and says he concocted the online hoax as a way to escape from his real life.

You gotta hear all the calls.  They air on "Dr. Phil" Friday.

I don't care that he and Te'o had sex. That is their business if they want to keep having sex. They are both grown men who like having sex with each other and we need to respect that.

I'm sorry, I have a major problem with this. The guy claims molestation and it was the reason he created a fantasy world pretending to be other people. He's all shy when having to reproduce the voice of Lennay and now all of a sudden, NOW, on national t.v. in front of a live audience he hasn't got a problem explaining about the childhood trauma. Personally, if he went through all that trouble to live life outside of reality he wouldn't be telling the world, all of a sudden, that he was molested. Something stinks to this whole story and it just screams "ATTENTION" right now.
