Sandra Bullock's pals worried as she barely had time to grieve Bryan Randall's death before Tuohy scandal
Critics called for Sandra Bullock to be stripped of her Oscar amid the controversy surrounding Michael Oher, the real-life subject of 'The Blind Side'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Insiders are worried that Sandra Bullock is on the verge of collapsing after enduring one crisis after another. After the devastating loss of her beloved, longtime partner, Bryan Randall, Bullock has been dragged into the Tuohy scandal because of her Oscar-winning performance in 'The Blind Side'.
Critics called for Bullock to be stripped of her Oscar amid the controversy surrounding Michael Oher, the real-life subject of 'The Blind Side', and his shocking lawsuit against the Tuohys, as reported by RadarOnline.

Oher, a former NFL player who rose to fame despite a difficult upbringing, alleged that his adoptive parents, Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, tricked him into conservatorship and took the proceeds from the 2009 Bullock movie away from him. The Tuohys have denied this accusation, though.
Before launching his complaint, the Tuohys claimed he sought to blackmail them for $15 million.
The protagonist of 'The Blind Side' was a destitute and traumatized young guy who, with the support of a kind woman and her family, went on to become an All-American football player and a first-round draft pick.
Sandra Bullock faced flak after Oher's allegations
Bullock found herself at the center of controversy after Oher made his assertions public since it was revealed that her part in the movie might have been based on falsehoods. If that was the case, fans said, then she did not deserve the Academy Award.
Oher however has defended Bullock, and he launched a fierce attack against her detractors. He said, "She gave a brilliant performance," adding, "And that shouldn't be tarnished for something that had nothing to do with her."
Oher says that Sandra is 'going through her own things right now'
He also acknowledged the challenges she was going through personally. "I wish they would just leave her alone because … she's going through her own things right now, you know with the love she just lost. You know, she suffered a great loss," he told Fox News Digital.
Sandra Bullock lost Bryan Randall on on August 5
Bullock is believed to be discouraged about the situation, despite Oher's supportive stance, according to individuals close to her. She lost her partner on August 5 after a valiant three-year struggle with ALS.
A friend said, "It's just one heartbreak piled atop another, she's always been tough and her coping mechanisms have seen her through hard times, but she's at the end of her rope."
Her close friends claimed that she had hardly had time to mourn Randall's passing before the Tuohy-Oher dispute erupted.
One friend remarked, "To say Sandra was blindsided herself is an understatement. She has not kept up with the Tuohys or Michael, so she didn't know the horrible animosity brewing or that she would be drawn into it."
The pal added, "At this point, Sandra's loved ones are telling her she needs to get away and process it all."
