Today we will explore the super secretive life of Michael’s brother Carlos. Like, where is Carlos as of 2023? Is he married? Are the Oher brothers still in a connection? and many more.
Let’s begin, shall we?
Carlos Oher Has Had Several Ups And Downs During His Childhood
Carlos Oher was born to Denise Oher and Michael Jerome Williams. Unfortunately, his date and place of birth are still under the media’s radar. Similarly, unlike his brother Michael Jerome (b. May 28, 1986), Carlos is living a very private life.
Besides, talking about Carlos’ early life, he had to face a lot of problems, as his mom was a drug addict, whereas his father had legal issues. Likewise, it is believed that his mother suffered from crack cocaine addiction and alcoholism.
Carlos’ Mother Has Overcome Her Addiction
Since 2011, Carlos’ mom Denise hasn’t had any drugs or alcohol. In 2017, during an interview with Local 24’s Jeni DiPrizio, his mother said,
“I haven’t had any drugs in 6 years. Ain’t had nothing to drink in three years. So I am on the right path. Ain’t no turning back this time. That’s all I know to say about that. No turning back this time.”
As of 2023, his mom is residing in her two-bedroom house on Elvis Presley Boulevard. As per Denise, she is really happy living in her own house and also said,
“When I found this house, I said what a blessing when I walked in the door. I said this is my dream home,”
Siblings: Carlos has Eleven Other Siblings
Carlos and his famous brother aren’t only the children of Denise and Michael. As per the online source, Oher has 11 other siblings including the NFL offensive Michael Jerome Oher Williams Jr.
Only seven of Calos’ siblings’ name is known publicly. Those names are Tara, Denise, John, Deljuan, Rico, Marcus, and Andre Oher.
Are Carlos And His Mom Denise Still In Contact?
It seems that Carlos isn’t in contact with any of his family members. Even his popular brother has never mentioned him on any of his social media handles. In 2017, the mother of 12, Denise told,
“I don’t know if he is dead or alive, and that’s a sad thing to say, but it’s the truth.”
And also about her popular son,
We don’t hear much from Michael, ya know. Hopefully, God will slap him in the back and he’s does what he is supposed to be doing as a family, with his family. I’m proud of him, I love him, and I’m going to give God all the praise for his success”.
The Blind Side Movie Was Portrayed Based On Carlos’ Brother’s Life
The Blind Side is a 2009 released movie that is mainly based on his brother’s life. So, it is obvious that their mother’s character would also appear. Similarly, to make it look more realistic, Denise was shown as a drug addict and alcoholic. After seeing that, she was embarrassed by that character. Likewise, Denise disclosed to the reporter of Action News 5,
“That addiction is very hard to just stop, “You have to work on it. You have to pray and you have to be committed to it and you have you want to change your life from that.”
Additionally, in that movie, Adriana Lenox starred as Michael’s mother.
Carlos Oher’s Brother was adopted by a Rich Family
As mentioned above, Carlos’ family background wasn’t a good one. It seems that Carlos and the rest of his siblings were placed in foster care from an early age. During that time, his brother Michael was just seven years old kid.
Not only that but, some years later, they had to lose their father, as he was murdered in prison. In 2004, Carlos’ brother was adopted by a businesswoman Leigh Anne Tuohy and her husband Sean Albro Tuohy. Likewise, he became the brother of that couple’s kids, Sean Jr., and Collins Tuohy.
Despite Carlos and his other siblings, Michael was the lucky one to gain a luxurious life. Tuohy’s family also treated him as their biological son, hired a private tutor for him, and began fulfilling his every need.
