In 2009's The Blind Side, Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy — a Tennessee mother who brings Michael Oher into her home and ostensibly adopts him.
The film grossed more than $300 million and earned Bullock the Oscar for Best Actress (her first Academy Award). Oher would go on to become a professional football player in the NFL.
He would also come to learn a shocking truth: Leigh Ann and her husband, Sean, did not legally adopt him. According to a petition filed in court last week, the Tuohy family placed Oher in a conservatorship.
As such, they were able to make decisions on his behalf and, as Oher claims, profit off of him. Oher claims that it wasn't until February of this year that he found out he wasn't legally part of the family.
Since the filing of the petition, the Tuohys have said they will terminate the conservatorship.
