By now, the Michael Oher story has been told over and again. But when it comes to Michael Oher’s wife, the book hasn’t even begun.
As you all know, Michael Oher was the inspiration behind the Michael Lewis book, The Blind Side. In the book and movie, Michael Oher was a homeless teen, adopted by a loving family. Michael Oher’s mother Leigh Anne Tuohy was the catalyst for the change in his life to become his legal guardian. Michael Oher’s parents helped transform him from nomadic lost teen, into a force on the football field, which ultimately landed him in the NFL.
But when it comes to Michael Oher’s real life, the story is a little different. Oher alleges factual discrepancies painted an exaggerated picture, and he’s worked to distance himself from the story. In that light, it’s not surprising that there’s no information out there about Michael Oher’s girlfriend, or Michael Oher’s wife. The Panthers left tackle, who is days away from playing in his second Super Bowl, has done a tremendous job keeping his private life private, leaving no bread crumbs to find the trail to his love life.
We do think it’s worth pointing out one misunderstanding. If you type “Michael Oher wife” into Google, it will prompt you to autofill with Michael Oher wife Tabitha. Let’s set the record straight. Michael Oher’s wife is not Tabitha. The random mashup of distinctly separate topics comes from the author of The Blind Side Michael Lewis’ wife Tabitha Soren. Soren, famous for being a host of MTV News, is most definitely not married to the left tackle protecting Cam Newton’s blind side.
Speaking of Newton, the Panthers QB was the main reason Oher signed with Carolina. A text conversation between the two ended with Cam saying that he didn’t just want him on the Panthers,… that he needed him. A Super Bowl berth, and possibly trophy later, certainly prove Cam knew what he needed.
