Tracy Morgan’s family members are upset, that the “30 Rock” star, worth a reported $18 million, won’t come up off of $25,000 to help his mother avoid foreclosure on her Ohio home. Morgan has been estranged from his mother, Alicia Warden, for some time, portraying her unfavorably in his 2009 book I’m the New Black. Warden, meanwhile, says she hasn’t seen her son in person in over a decade, according to the Daily News.
The 43-year-old star has reportedly offered Moms $2,000 to help her stave off foreclosure, despite her currently owing $25,000 on her house. But family members have spoken out against the “Saturday Night Live” alum for not providing the entire amount, since it “would be a drop in the bucket for Tracy,” according to his younger sister Asia Morgan, 41. She calls her famous brother a “d—bag” and says she’s done keeping quiet about Tracy.
“Because of the way he’s treating our mother, all bets are off…He’s never been a nice person….And money’s just made it worse….My mom’s house isn’t extravagant, but it’s her home, Her health is failing. She has diabetes, and her legs are giving out on her…This would be a drop in the bucket for Tracy. She has a son that can do, and she’s done everything that she could possibly could for her family….. My mother did everything she could…She ran numbers, but she did it to put food on the table. We were raised in the [Tompkins] projects [in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn}, but we didn’t think we were poor.”
Warden says she worked until February 2011, when she lost her job. Not long after that, she adds, she first approached Tracy about helping her.
She claims he initially agreed to pay off her house, but changed his mind after accusing her of giving an interview to the media. (She denies doing this.)
Sounds like there is a lot that’s not being said to this story!!
