With a court-appointed guardian in charge of her finances, the former talk show host has practically no autonomy. Here's what guardianships do — and how it impacts Williams.
Tennessee Judge Kathleen Gomes said she'd never seen such a conservatorship for someone who isn't disabled. She isn't dismissing Oher's case to receive accounts of his finances from the Tuohys.
Lawyers for Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy say the couple intends to end their conservatorship for Oher, a former NFL offensive lineman and the inspiration behind the 2009 film, The Blind Side.
The family says that Oher's claims against them in the petition filed Monday are essentially a "shakedown effort" in order to get nearly $15 million from them.
In court documents filed in a Tennessee probate court, Oher alleged that the Tuohys convinced him to sign documents that agreed to a conservatorship in 2004.
Oher alleged Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy presented him with a document establishing a conservatorship shortly after he moved in with him, and said it was "for all intents and purposes, an adoption."
