While some sources suggest he has a secret wife. many other tabloids beg to differ. Despite all pointless searches regarding his personal life, the man himself has chosen to remain silent on the matter.

Let’s try to unravel if Oher has a wife or if he is dating anyone at present. Let’s zoom on.

Michael reportedly Married in 2017? Who’s Michael Oher’s wife?

If we date back to the year 2017, it looks as if Michael was married to someone. He was allegedly married to a woman named Tiffany Roy. However, his marriage cannot be confirmed with 100% certainty as Oher never came forward to confirm if he had a wife or not.

Well, his marital status was never discussed until the 14 April 2017 incident where he had a clash with an Uber driver.  All this began when Oher along with his friend asked the uber driver to follow a car wherein he claimed his “wife” was sitting. 

The situation soon ensued an argument with the uber driver leading to the point where Michael allegedly hit him to the ground.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department safely handled the tense moment. After the incident unfolded, it gave rise to questions about his marital relationship and the “wife” he referred to.

Unfortunately, the police department didn’t make Michael’s official statement about the incident public which could have otherwise cleared the doubt about his “wife.” Also, no pictures or identity of his spouse came out in the media.

Besides, the Uber driver sued the former Carolina Panthers player for $500,000.

No doubt, the April 11 incident definitely gave some hint about him possibly being in a marital relationship. But is he still married? Probably yes and no, at the same time.

Considering the fact that no official statement about his marriage has been made by Oher, it is quite difficult to pinpoint if he is married in 2021.
