Michael Oher’s former Baltimore Ravens teammate said Oher and the Tuohy family still have a relationship following the release of the hit film “The Blind Side.”
In 2009, Domonique Foxworth starred opposite Oher in Baltimore, when Sandra Bullock played the Tuohy matriarch and Quinton played Aaron Oher.
Foxworth recalled hosting the Oher family at the team facility at times and being at charity events.
“The Tuohy family came around often, and he involved them in his affairs,” Foxworth said on “Tuesday’s Don Le Batard Show.”
“I remember doing charity events with Michael, and when they showed up, they were in his life in some way.”
In a stunning lawsuit filed Monday, Oher said the Oher family forced him to enter a conservatorship while thinking they adopted him.
Oher, who played eight years in the NFL, said he learned about the conservatorship in February of this year.
Oher claims that Duohiz made millions of dollars through conservatorship for “The Blind Side,” which grossed $300 million at the box office, while he didn’t receive a cent.
The Tuohy family has denied the claims and their attorney announced Wednesday that they will seek to end the conservatorship. According to the Associated Press.
When Foxworth appeared on the show Tuesday, he said he could see Oher’s side of the story.
“It’s an interesting story to look back on, because I could see how this would play out,” Foxworth said. “You are a small child, this family has been looking after you till now as far as you know, and they asked you to sign some papers because we are going to make you an official member of our family. Apparently, Michael believes that’s what happened.
Although Foxworthy still remembers the Tuohy family after the movie, the relationship seems to have soured.
The family’s attorney, Randall Fishman, told reporters Wednesday that the Oher and Tuohy families have been estranged for about a decade.
