Carlos Oher is only recognized as the brother of a former offensive American football player Michael Oher. His brother played eight seasons in the National Football League. Michael began his professional career with the Baltimore Ravens team and retired after playing for the Carolina Panthers.
Today we will explore the super secretive life of Michael’s brother Carlos. Like, where is Carlos from 2023? Is he married? Are the Oher brothers still in touch? and much more.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Carlos Oher has had several ups and downs during his childhood
Carlos Oher was born at Denise Oher and Michael Jerome Williams. Unfortunately, his date and place of birth are still under the radar of the media. Likewise, unlike his brother Michael Jerome (b. May 28, 1986), Carlos leads a very private life.
Besides, if we talk about Carlos’ early life, he faced many problems as his mother was a drug addict while his father had legal problems. Likewise, his mother is believed to have suffered from crack cocaine addiction and alcoholism.
Carlos’ mother has overcome her addiction
Since 2011, Carlos’ mother Denise has not used drugs or alcohol. In 2017, during an interview with Jeni DiPrizio from Local 24, his mother said,
“I haven’t had any drugs in six years. I haven’t had a drink in three years. So I’m on the right track. This time there is no turning back. That’s all I can say about that. This time there is no going back.”
As of 2023, his mother lives in her two-bedroom home on Elvis Presley Boulevard. According to Denise, she is very happy in her own home and also said:
“When I found this house, I said what a blessing when I entered. I said this is my dream house’
Siblings: Carlos has eleven other siblings
Carlos and his famous brother are not only Denise and Michael’s children. According to the online source, Oher has 11 other siblings, including NFL offensive line Michael Jerome Oher Williams Jr.
Only seven of Calos’ siblings’ names are publicly known. Those names are tara, Denise, John, Deljuan, Rico, Marcusand Andre Oher.
Are Carlos and his mother Denise still in touch?
It seems that Carlos has no contact with any of his relatives. Not even his popular brother has ever mentioned him on any of his social media handles. In 2017, the mother of 12, Denise, told
“I don’t know if he’s dead or alive, which is sad to say, but it’s the truth.”
And also about her popular son,
We don’t hear much from Michael, you know. Hopefully God will slap him in the back and do what he’s supposed to do as a family, with his family. I’m proud of him, I love him, and I’m going to give God all the credit for his success.”
The film with the blind side was portrayed based on the life of Carlos’ brother
The blind side is a 2009 released film mainly based on his brother’s life. So it’s clear that their mother’s character would also make an appearance. Likewise, to make it seem more realistic, Denise was shown as a drug addict and alcoholic. After seeing that, she was embarrassed by that character. Similarly, Denise revealed to the Action News 5 reporter,
“That addiction is very difficult to stop just like that. “You have to work at it. You have to pray and you have to be committed to it and you have to change your life from there.
Moreover, in that movie, Adrian Lenox starred as Michael’s mother.
Carlos Oher’s brother was adopted by a wealthy family
As mentioned above, Carlos’ family background was not good. It appears that Carlos and the rest of his siblings were placed in foster care from an early age. At that time, his brother Michael was only seven years old.
Not only that, but several years later, they had to lose their father, as he was killed 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 children, Sean Jr., and Collins Tuohy.
Despite Carlos and his other siblings, Michael was the lucky one who got a life of luxury. Tuohy’s family also treated him as their biological son, hired him a tutor and began to attend to his every need.
