Michael Oher Sues to End Tuohys’ Conservatorship, Made Famous by ‘The Blind Side’

Former NFL tackle Michael Oher, known for the movie “The Blind Side,” has filed a petition to terminate the conservatorship held by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy. Oher accuses them of deceiving him by having him sign papers that made them his conservators instead of his adoptive parents almost 20 years ago. In addition, Oher is seeking a full accounting of the money earned from the use of his name and story, as well as fair compensation and damages determined by the court. The Tuohys’ lawyer stated that they would respond to the allegations in court.

Oher found out in February that the Tuohys are still his conservators, despite the conservatorship paperwork being filed after he turned 18. He was selected as the 23rd overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft and played for the Baltimore Ravens, the Tennessee Titans, and the Carolina Panthers during his eight-year NFL career.

This case brings attention to the issue of conservatorships, as exemplified by Britney Spears’ recent battle for freedom from her own conservatorship. Advocates across the country are questioning the extent of control and potential harm that can come from such arrangements.

Perspective: The case of Michael Oher sheds light on the complexities and potential pitfalls of conservatorship. While his story became famous through the movie “The Blind Side,” it is clear that there are underlying legal and personal concerns surrounding his relationship with the Tuohy family. This case serves as a reminder that there are often untold stories hidden behind the glitz and glamour of Hollywood representations. It also invites a broader conversation about the need for transparency and accountability in legal arrangements that affect individuals’ lives and well-being.
