From a 'Blind Side' response to Madonna's new tour dates, here's what's happening in entertainment.
'The Blind Side' Adoption Allegation Response
After former NFL offensive lineman Michael Oher accused the couple believed to be his parents of tricking him into a conservatorship rather than an actual adoption, one of them is speaking out.
Sean Tuohy, Oher's alleged adoptive father, clapped against the claim that the family made money using his story and name, while refusing to give him a fair share.
Oher said in a court filing that the family made $250,000 from Disney's The Blind Side, a film that told a story of Oher's transition from homelessness to adoption and ultimately a thriving career in football, and continue to receive residual payments. Tuohy denied those claims.
"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," Tuohy told the The Daily Memphian.
"The last thing I needed was $40,000 from a movie," he said. "I will say, it's upsetting that people would think I would want to make money off any of my children."
After recovering from bacterial infection that caused her to be hospitalized this summer, Madonna is ready to hit the road.
The Material Girl announced a slate of new dates for her delayed Celebration Tour. It was originally supposed to kick off in Canada last month but now the first show will get underway October 14 in London with four sold-out shows. The tour won't make its way to the U.S. until December when she lands at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
The tour is scheduled to conclude in Mexico City in April 2024.
Steele Out at ESPN
More changes are coming to ESPN with host Sage Steele announcing she is leaving the network.
Steele recently settled a case with the sports network after she said the company retaliated against her for comments she made about former President Barack Obama and the company's COVID-19 vaccine mandate during an appearance on former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler's podcast. She sued the company last year but maintained her spot on the SportsCenter's noon show.
Steele took to X to say that she was moving on from the company "so I can exercise my first amendment rights more freely."
