Moreover, she has refused to share any information about her parents and siblings and has not even shared her exact date of birth.

Dating, Marriage & Kids

Oher and Roy seem to have tried to remain private. However, Michael’s adoptive brother, SJ Tuohy, shared a group photo of the family on August 10, 2015. Oher and Roy are believed to be there in the picture. It is safe to assume that the couple has been in a relationship for a long time. 

The duo reportedly met at the University of Mississippi during Oher’s time with the Ole Miss (University of Mississippi’s football program).

After dating for a long time, Oher finally gathered the courage to ask Roy the question. On July 12, 2021, the former NFL player went down on one knee and popped the question.

After more than a year from this day, on November 5, 2022, Oher and Roy shared their vows in front of 200 attendees at the JW Marriott in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Oher family has extended to 6 members, as the pair have welcomed four kids; Two sons (Kobi and MJ) and two daughters (Kierstin and Naivi).

Michael and Tiffany are happily married and are living a blissful life with their kids.

Controversy

Around 2017, Oher was charged with misdemeanor assault after he allegedly beat up an Uber driver, Girma Berkessa, who reportedly didn’t follow his instructions. As per Oher, the driver was taking a longer route to get more money. 

However, according to the alleged victim, Michael asked him to follow a car where his wife was seated.

Following Oher being sued, he was terminated from his contract with the Carolina Panthers as he was not fully recovered from the concussion he suffered in 2016, as per the team and the then head coach, Ron Rivera.

However, they seem to have resolved their issue at the time, and prosecutors have dismissed the assault charge against Michael.

Career

Sadly, we do not have any info on what Michael Oher‘s wife did. Both Michael and Tiffany have been very secretive about Tiffany’s career detail.

What we know is that the former NFL player’s wife runs an online boutique store named ‘The Feminish Collection,” which mainly focuses on making every woman of all sizes fabulous and confident on all occasions. The store has a collection of shoes to tops for women.

Tiffany and Michael run a non-profit organization named ‘Beat the Odds Inc.’ The Company runs on charity and funding from Michael and specializes in providing fair chances to deserving but less fortunate players.

Michael holds the position of the Company’s president, and Tiffany is the Vice-president, according to propublica.org.

Net Worth

Tiffany Roy’s net worth is not available as of now. Since we do not know what kind of job she did and how good of a business she is doing with her online boutique, we could not estimate her net worth.

On the other hand, Michael Oher has an estimated net worth of $20 million as of 2024. He generated a fortune of wealth from his professional football career and endorsements.

Brief Bio of Michael Oher

Michael Oher, born on the 28th of May 1986, spent most of his childhood as a homeless kid before being adopted by the Tuohy family.

His father, Michael Jerome Williams, was not always present, as he usually went in and out of prison.

Likewise, his mother, suffering from alcoholism and crack cocaine addiction, did not take good care of her son and the other 11 children.

Despite spending his childhood in a sketchy neighborhood, Michael received little attention or discipline. Switching from one foster house to another, Oher was finally adopted by a crazy wealthy family (Tuohy).

That was the turning point in Michael’s life; we bet none of the awards and accolades he has feels more significant than the opportunity the Tuohy family gave him; the chance of a brand new life.

The Tuohy family put him in a well-reputed school where he fell in love with football.

He grew up to be a passionate football player and worked extremely hard to get into the National Football League, the biggest football league.

Michael played college football for the University of Mississippi. Following his college football career, Michael was drafted with the 23rd pick in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.

His rookie contract with the Ravens on a five-year deal worth $13.8 million. The former Ravens’ Offensive tackle later signed with Tennessee Titans on a four-year/$20 million contract on March 14, 2014.

On March 6, 2015, Oher was signed by the Carolina Panthers for 2-year/$7 million. The former Panthers offensive tackle played in Super Bowl L, where the Panthers fell to the Denver Broncos by a score of 24-10.

After that, he later transferred to the Carolina Panthers on June 17, 2016, and eventually retired after the panthers released him following his injury.

Michael Oher’s Social Media Presence

Tiffany Michelle Roy prefers to keep her life as private as possible and does not want to let the public in on her details, including her photos.

We think she did not fancy it when Sean Tuohy Jr. shared her picture on the internet. Still, she was not in any position to say anything to him as the Tuohy family was the reason for her husband’s multi-million career.

Oher shared an Instagram post with photo slides on August 21, 2020, with Tiffany Roy. And the same image is used by an Instagram account that is supposed to be Roy’s account. Unfortunately, the account is private, but you can follow her Company’s Instagram account with the username @feminishcollection. 

But on the other hand, Michael Oher is an active social media user.

Oher’s Relationship With The Tuohy Family

The Tuohy family adopted Michael when he was 16 years old. His rise in the football industry was all because of the Tuohy family. Oher had a very good relationship with his adopted family until news surfaced during Oher-Roy wedding.

According to all the photos of the wedding that surfaced, not a single photo featured any member of the Touhy family. More surprisingly, none of the Tuohy family congratulated the newlyweds.

Back in 2020, Michael’s adoptive mother posted a picture with the caption, “He will always be my Super Bowl MVP.” However, Oher seems to have unfollowed every member of his adoptive family on social media. 

Looking at these evidences, Michael and the Tuohy family seemingly are on bad terms.
