(Newser) – The latest twist in the Manti Te'o saga is that he spoke on the phone for hundreds of hours with a man posing as his non-existent girlfriend. Now Te'o has released three voicemails to Katie Couric's show, and you can grade the apparent falsetto yourself. The voice allegedly belongs to hoaxster Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, and Deadspin also has the audio here. In an interview with Couric, meanwhile, Te'o shot down the rumor that he's gay, notes TMZ.

  • Couric: "One of the many theories making the rounds is somehow you created this whole scenario to cover your sexual orientation. Are you gay?"
  • Te'o: "No, far from it. Farrr from it."
