The news comes amid a flurry of drama for Folau's campaign, with Network 10's Lisa Wilkinson and Channel Seven's David Koch pointedly asking questions on air about the millionaire athlete's financial situation and religious beliefs.
Former Wallabies Drew Mitchell and Mark Gerrard are among Folau's biggest critics, with Gerrard telling Fox Sports News the ongoing debacle is "tarnishing the game of rugby" in Australia.
Australian comedian Joel Creasey, who is openly gay, has also challenged Israel Folau to a TV debate about the scandal, Pedestrian reports.
WATCH this outspoken Anglican priest take on Folau:
Folau's beliefs first caused controversy in April 2018, when he responded to a fan question about "God's plans for homosexuals" on social media saying: "Hell.. Unless they repent of their sins and turn to God."
The embattled rugby pro was accused of homophobia and the team's chief sponsor Qantas condemned his stance, but Folau defended his words declaring he "believes in inclusion" and has "no phobia towards anyone".
But one year later Folau, who regularly posts excerpts from biblical passages on Instagram and has been described as a fundamentalist Christian, shared a meme which listed various groups including homosexuals, liars, adulterers, fornicators, idolaters, drunks and thieves with the words: "WARNING: Hell awaits you. Repent. Only Jesus saves.
The post prompted Rugby Australia to announce their intent to terminate his contract.
Folau was found guilty of breaching Rugby Australia's code of conduct and lost his sponsorship deal with Asics and on May 17 was formally sacked from the Waratahs and Wallabies.
