No Laughing Matter: Tracy Morgan Won’t Help Mom Avoid Foreclosure



Actor and author Tracy Morgan just jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. Less than two weeks ago Morgan collapsed while attending the Sundance Film Festival but bounced back quickly to begin filming new episodes of ’30 Rock’. Now the funny man must deal with yet another serious issue.


According to ‘The New York Daily News’ Morgan’s estranged mother, Alicia Warden is in danger of having her house foreclosed on by the bank. Warden needs $25,000 to keep her home. Warden has reached out to her son who is worth a reported $18 million. However, she says he is only willing to give her $2,000 of assistance. Morgan has not seen Warden in more than 10 years.


Warden, 61, says her mortgage company has notified her that if she doesn’t make a minimum payment by Feb. 23, it will begin foreclosure proceedings on her home. She adds that her utilities are about to be turned off and she’s about to lose her car as well.


Morgan’s younger sister, Asia Morgan chimed in with “he’s never been a nice person, and money’s just made it worse.” Also, she called her older brother a “douchebag.”


Warden reportedly approached her son in January of this year, and initially, Tracy agreed to offer his mother some assistance but pulled the plug after he thought that she had done a tabloid interview about him.  Warden denies the accusation.


There are always two sides to every story. Tracy Morgan did not portray his mother in the best light in his book  ‘I Am The New Black.’


Speaking to the media is certainly not going to help reconcile the relationship between mother and son. Morgan is not the first celebrity to have his family life put on display. Madonna and Oprah have dealt with media scrutiny based on the financial issues of their family members.
