With the help of his adoptive parents, Sean Tuohy and Leigh Anne Tuohy, Oher overcame childhood hardships to become a recognized professional NFL player. He first played professionally for the Baltimore Ravens in the 2009 NFL Draft.
After winning the 2013 Superbowl with the Ravens, he played for the Tennessee Titans for 4 years and then for the Carolina Panthers in a two-year contract.
Oher is now leading a secluded life away from the spotlight. Other than the infamous 2017 Uber incident in which he was involved, there is little to no information about his private life, including his wife and kids.
Recently though, there was a confusion of sorts regarding Oher’s wife, which happened to be completely misconstrued.
Is Michael Oher Married to Tabitha Soren?
There has been much confusion regarding Michael Oher’s wife. If one were to search for Michael Oher’s wife in Google, one of the search results for that yields the name, Tabitha Soren.
And while Soren is related to him indirectly, she is not, however, his wife.
Who is Tabitha Soren, then?
Soren is an American fine art photographer and also a former reporter for NBC and ABC. She is, in fact, the wife of American financial journalist Michael Lewis.
Lewis is also the author of the 2006 book The Blind Side based on Oher’s tainted childhood, his adoption into the Tuohy family, and his rise as a football player.
The book then became the basis for the 2009 film of the same name.
Michael Oher’s Real Wife and Kids
Oher’s actual wife remains rather anonymous, to say the least. There is very little information about his wife and his kids in public.
That being said, she manages a private Instagram account that goes by the username @7tiff4tiff. In addition to that, many sources claim that Other’s wife’s name is Tiffany Michelle Roy.
On August 10, 2015, Sean Tuohy Jr., Director of football operations for UCF Football, posted a picture on Instagram that revealed Oher’s wife’s face.
The picture also featured Oher, Leigh Anne Tuohy, Collins Tuohy Smith, Sean Tuohy, and Tuohy Jr.
Oher was adopted by the Tuohy family, to be precise, by Sean Tuohy and his wife, Leigh Anne. Therefore, the former NFL player and his wife Tiffany still manages a good bond with the Tuohy family.
In another instance, Oher’s wife broke into the news when Oher was involved in an infamous Uber incident.
In July 2017, Oher allegedly attacked an Uber driver while he was drunk. According to the driver named Girma Berkessa, he had asked him to follow the car in which his “wife” was seated.
Oher then later attacked him when he told Oher that the car they were following was missing its direction. The former American football player reportedly believed that the driver was trying to scam him to charge more money and confronted him.
Oher did appear for a court hearing later that year in October. However, neither the accuser nor the defendant made their statements publicly available.
Oher Brought a Grand Mansion in 2014
While Oher may have been extremely careful in keeping his private affairs a secret, some information did tend to become public now and then. Case in point: Oher’s grand mansion.
In 2014, Oher purchased a grand mansion in Brentwood for a whopping $1.3 million.
The mansion did not seem like something a bachelor like Oher would purchase if he were a bachelor.
On the other hand, the mansion could also be one of his investments from his NFL money. So, it is hard to make a guess.
