Leigh Anne appeared informal in a white T-shirt, gentle pink skirt, and vivid pink fanny pack. Sean wore an orange shirt and navy pants. The couple walked alongside an unidentified man exterior their Florida mansion.

Leigh Anne and Sean have been coping with the fallout of Michael alleging that they tricked him into changing into his conservator in a bombshell lawsuit filed on August 14. Michael, whose life story impressed the Oscar-winning 2009 film The Blind Facet, claimed in his courtroom submitting that the Tuohys led him to consider they adopted him and “have used that untruth to gain financial advantages for themselves and the foundations which they own or which they exercise control.”

Michael revealed within the courtroom paperwork that he didn’t know concerning the conservatorship till February 2023, and the conservatorship was supposed to finish when he was 25. He’s now 37.

The Tuohys ultimately responded to Michael’s lawsuit. Sean informed The Each day Memphian that he and Leigh Anne have been “devastated” over the scenario. “It’s upsetting to think we would make money off any of our children. But we’re going to love Michael at 37 just like we loved him at 16,” he stated.

Sean claimed that attorneys informed him and Leigh Anne years in the past that they “couldn’t adopt” Michael since he was over 18, and the “only thing we could do was to have a conservatorship” so Michael might go to Ole Miss and play soccer. Sean revealed that he helps no matter Michael decides to do. “We’re not in this for anything other than whatever he wants. If he’d have said, ‘I don’t want to be part of the family anymore,’ we’d have been very upset, but we absolutely would have done it,” the restaurateur stated.

Michael broke his silence relating to the lawsuit and stated in a press release to the New York Put up that he was “disheartened by the revelation” within the petition. The previous NFL participant admitted that “this is a difficult situation for my family and me. I want to ask everyone to please respect our privacy at this time. For now, I will let the lawsuit speak for itself and will offer no further comment.”

Three days after the lawsuit was filed, Leigh Anne and Sean disclosed via their attorneys that they’d be ending the conservatorship for Michael. Their attorneys claimed in a press convention that Michael and Tuohys had been estranged for over a decade.
