Tuohy Family Says They Never Intended to Adopt Michael Oher

Published

However, Sean and Leigh Anne said their family bond did exist, but not just in a court-appointed manner.

The Memphis couple said they do consider Michael “as part of their family and over time the Petitioner referred to Respondents as ‘mom’ and ‘dad,’ and the Respondent’s occasionally referred to the Petitioner as a son,” their September petition continued. “In fact, they have always felt that the Petitioner was like a son and have used that on occasion but not in a legal sense.”

On Aug. 16, the Tuohys’ attorney Randall Fishman said the couple is planning to voluntarily terminate their conservatorship over Michael, per the Associated Press. A day prior, Marty Singer, another lawyer for the pair, said in a statement to E! News that “should Mr. Oher wish to terminate the conservatorship, either now or at anytime in the future, the Tuohys will never oppose it in any way.”

In The Blind Side, onscreen Michael (Quinton Aaron) is adopted by the Tuohys, played by Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw, respectively.

E! News has reached out to Michael’s rep for comment on the new court petition and has not heard back.

Wynonna Judd “I Saw the Light” / “No One Else On Earth” FULL PERFORMANCE at People’s Choice Country Awards 2023

Wynonna Judd was humble and kind when she took the stage at the 2023 People’s Choice Country Awards. 

After all, the “I Saw the Light” singer gave a nod to Tim McGraw as she looked back on her decades-long music career while accepting the first-ever Country Champion Award at the Sept. 28 ceremony. (See the complete list of winners here.)

Joking how half of the audience either “don’t know who I am” or was “not born when I had my years of being fabulous,” the 59-year-old pointed out that “back in 19-blah-blah-blah, Tim McGraw opened for me.”

“Four weeks ago, I opened for Tim,” she continued to laughter and applause. “The highs are highs and the lows are low, baby, but don’t ever let them tell you who you are.”

Elsewhere in her speech, Wynonna noted how the definition of champion means “to do battle for others’ honor,” quipping to the crowd, “and that is exactly what I’m going to do tomorrow when I get on a commercial flight and fly to Denver and do one more show, because I can’t get enough of you.”

Blake Shelton Reveals the Epic Diss Toby Keith Once Gave Him on Tour

Published

“I remember one night, it was after an award show,” he recalled, “and Toby had been up for like four or five awards and, man, he didn’t win crap that night. I was talking to him after that and I had the nerve—I was so excited to be able to get under his skin—I said, ‘Man, Toby, if I ever make it big enough one day and I get nominated for some awards, I hope it’s against you.'”

But Toby had a different reason for saddling up with the young buck on tour.

“I swear, Toby looked at me and he said, ‘You know why I brought you out on tour with me?’ And I said, ‘No,'” Blake continued. “And he goes, ‘I wanted to prove to this industry that I don’t really need an opening act.'”

All jokes aside, the “God’s Country” artist also shared how his fellow Oklahoman shaped his time in music back in the day.

“Watching him, I felt the impact of Toby’s music from the anthems that spoke to the bigger things to the songs that are full of humor and energy and the soundtrack to good times,” Blake reflected. “Man I was out there with Toby for, it was a long time, like almost two years I think. I finally go the point where I was comfortable enough being around him.”

He added, “I love my Oklahoma brother, everybody.”

Meanwhile, Toby isn’t the only honoree of the night. Wynonna Judd is receiving the first Country Champion Award for her career in country music along with her advocacy throughout the years, including working closely with the Wounded Warrior Project and Habitat for Humanity.

The country singer, who is expecting her fourth baby with husband Eric Decker, shared how their three kids Vivianne, 9, Eric Jr., 7 and Forrest, 5, reacted to her pregnancy news during the People’s Choice Country Awards red carpet Sept. 28.

“They’re so excited. I mean, that’s all we talk about, to be honest,” Jessie exclusively told E! News. “We’re all just preparing for the baby’s arrival. They’re older now, so they understand what’s going on, so it’s cool.” (See every country star on the red carpet here.)

As for the 35-year-old herself? Although the baby wasn’t planned, the mom-to-be is over the moon at their latest addition.

“We’re excited,” she gushed. “We toyed with it and then we were like, ‘No we’re good with three.’ And then God made other plans and we’re all for it,” with Eric adding that being a family of six is a total touchdown in his book: “We were absolutely shocked at first but obviously it’s a blessing. Add another one to the family—let’s go!”
