2023 Complaint From Michael Oher

On August 14, 2023, it was revealed that Michael had filed a bombshell petition to a Tennessee court that claimed the central story line of “The Blind Side” was a lie “concocted” by the family to enrich themselves at his expense. The petition requested to end Sean and Leigh Anne’s conservatorship, to pay him a fair share of profits from the film, compensatory and punitive damages and that the couple be barred from using his name in future projects.

Among other shocking allegations, Michael’s petition claimed that he was never actually adopted by the Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, and was instead put under a conservatorship. This is important because under a conservatorship he did not have a familial relationship with the Tuohys and that the family was able to strike deals in his name, allegedly without providing him a share of royalties that were generated by the movie and other media that features his name and likeness. The petition claimed that the family struck a deal that paid both Tuohy parents and two children, Sean Jr. and Collins, $225,000 plus 2.5% of “defined net proceeds” earned off “The Blind Side” at the box office, DVD sales and streaming revenue.

“The Blind Side” generated $300 million at the box office on a budget of $30 million. Based on average film profit breaktouts, one could presume that there were at least $150 million in net proceeds. If that was correct, the four Tuohys each presumably received $225,000 PLUS $3.75 million in royalties over time just on the box office, not including DVD and streaming revenue.

Michael’s petition claimed that he did not earn anything from the money while the family made millions of dollars. Furthermore Michael claimed the family had him sign a contract in 2007 that gave 20th Century Fox the life rights to his story “without any payment whatsoever.

This contradicts what Leigh Anne said in her 2010 book “In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving.” In that book Leigh Anne claimed they split the money from the movie “five ways.” However, Michael’s petition claims he never received any money from the movie at all.

The Blind Side Royalties

In the wake of his allegations, Alcon, the movie studio that produced “The Blind Side,” released a statement that revealed exactly how much it had paid to Oher and the Tuoys. From the statement:

“Alcon has paid approximately $767,000 to the talent agency that represents the Tuohy family and Michael Oher.”… The agency, presumably, took a 10% commission before passing the royalties on… “We anticipate that the Tuohy family and Michael Oher will receive additional profits as audiences continue to enjoy this true story in the years to come.”

Doing a quick bit of math, after the talent agency took a 10% cut we are left with $690,000 split by the four members of the Tuohy family and Michael Oher. That’s $138,000 per person, pre-tax.

Personal Life

In October 2016 Collins married Cannon Smith, the son of billionaire FedEx founder Fred Smith. Cannon’s sister Molly Smith was an executive producer of “The Blind Side.”

Oher did attend Collins’ wedding. He walked Leigh Anne down the aisle.
