Tracy Morgan, the controversial and outspoken comedian, is again making headlines for all the wrong reasons, this time not for what he said but for what he is not doing.
The embattled "30 Rock" comedian reportedly will not give his mother the financial assistance needed in order to keep her house out of foreclosure.
Alicia Warden, 61, has stated that her mortgage company had contacted her and told her that she is required to make a minimum payment by Feb. 23 or it will be forced to begin foreclosure proceedings, according to the New York Daily News.
She goes on to explain that some of her utilities are close to being turned off as well as having her car repossessed.
Asia Morgan, Tracy's sister said that she was tired of the way that her brother has treated the rest of his family and that she is no longer keeping quiet about it.
She claims that she is not going to look the other way anymore. "Because of the way he's treating our mother, all bets are off," Asia said.
She continues that her brother has "never been a nice person," adding that "money's just made it worse."
According to reports Morgan sent a representative to visit his mother and offered her only $2,000 even though she only owes $25,000 on the house. Morgan is reportedly worth $18 million according to Forbes.
"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," Asia said.
"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."
Morgan has reportedly been estranged from his mother more than a decade after a rough and rocky childhood in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn, N.Y. He also wrote about her unfavorably 2009 book, I'm the New Black.
Morgan's sister added that her "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."
