This time, it’s not the glitz of the red carpet that’s making headlines, but rather a legal battle surrounding the life story she brought to the screen.

The legal battle of Michael Oher, the former NFL tackle and the real-life inspiration behind the widely acclaimed film The Blind Side, has recently made a bold assertion, the movie’s central storyline is far from the truth. The movie won Sandra Bullock an Oscar for best actress in a leading role. Michael Oher was portrayed as a young African-American man hailing from a financially disadvantaged background. The movie highlighted his journey, culminating in his adoption by the affluent white family, Sean, and Leigh Anne Tuohy. However, Oher has come forward, asserting that the couple employed a deception of sorts by having him sign certain documents.

These documents granted the Tuohy family legal authority as his conservators, allowing them to engage in business transactions using his name. In a legal petition spanning 14 pages, lodged in Shelby County, Tennessee, a compelling argument unfolded. The assertion was that the Tuohy family’s relationship with Oher took an unexpected twist. The claim stated that a document was presented to Oher, compelling his signature mere months after he celebrated his 18th birthday in 2004, a time when his NFL career had come to an end. the Tuohys wielded their conservator authority to orchestrate agreements that could potentially bring their family over $300 million in royalties from the film.
