Michael Oher was paid $138,000 from ‘The Blind Side’ movie and book, Touhy family says in court filing

  • Michael Oher, the former NFL player whose life story was depicted in the film "The Blind Side," claims that the Tuohy family never paid him his share of the film profits. However, court documents reveal that the Tuohys say they paid Oher more than $138,000 from the proceeds of the movie and book.
  • Oher accused the Tuohys of misleading him into signing an agreement by promising to adopt him. He also alleged that they had "ultimate control" over his contracts and falsely represented themselves as his adoptive parents.
  • Despite the conflicts, the Tuohys filed a financial statement showing that they made 10 payments totaling $138,311.01 to Oher and his son. They also denied claims of enriching themselves at Oher's expense and asserted that they have always acted in his best interest.
