Sean Tuohy Jr. Denies Family Made Millions From The Blind Side

Shortly after the lawsuit was filed, SJ’s dad Sean Tuohy Sr. reacted to the petition, noting that that his family is “devastated” over the allegations.

“It’s upsetting to think we would make money off any of our children,” he told the Daily Memphian Aug. 14. “But we’re going to love Michael at 37 just like we loved him at 16.” Sean also said that they “didn’t make any money off the movie,” but later clarified his stance.

“Well, Michael Lewis, the [author of the book on which the movie was based] gave us half of his share,” he told the outlet. “Everybody in the family got an equal share, including Michael. It was about $14,000, each.”

As for the former NFL player, he broke his silence after his filing, noting he was “disheartened by the revelation” of the conservatorship.

“This is a difficult situation for my family and me,” Michael told the New York Post Aug. 14. “I want to ask everyone to please respect our privacy at this time. For now, I will let the lawsuit speak for itself.”
