Well, this is a giant blow to just about all of us who loved the beloved sports film "The Blind Side".

Former NFL player Michael Oher, who was the subject of the award winning movie starring Sandra Bullock, claims that he was never actually adopted by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy and alleges that they tricked him into signing a document shortly after becoming a legal adult that gave them the power to make business deals in his name.

From the story: 

“The lie of Michael’s adoption is one upon which Co-Conservators Leigh Anne Tuohy and Sean Tuohy have enriched themselves at the expense of their Ward, the undersigned Michael Oher,” the legal filing says. “Michael Oher discovered this lie to his chagrin and embarrassment in February of 2023, when he learned that the Conservatorship to which he consented on the basis that doing so would make him a member of the Tuohy family, in fact provided him no familial relationship with the Tuohys.”

“Since at least August of 2004, Conservators have allowed Michael, specifically, and the public, generally, to believe that Conservators adopted Michael and have used that untruth to gain financial advantages for themselves and the foundations which they own or which they exercise control,” the petition says. “All monies made in said manner should in all conscience and equity be disgorged and paid over to the said ward, Michael Oher.”

This is pretty crazy and not to mention disappointing!
