Tracy Morgan slammed by his mother and sister after refusing to help family's financial woes
Tracy Morgan ’s mother is about to lose her house — and she says her multimillionaire son won’t help her.
Alicia Warden, who lives in northeast Ohio (and spoke on the condition we not reveal the exact location), says she owes less than $25,000 on her home, but the most the “30 Rock” star — who is worth $18 million, according to Forbes — offered to give her was a one-time payment of $2,000.
The comic’s younger sister, Asia Morgan, 41, confirms their mom’s financial woes and calls her famous brother a “d-- bag.”
She says she’s done keeping quiet about Tracy, 43. “Because of the way he’s treating our mother, all bets are off,” says Asia.
“He’s never been a nice person,” says Asia, who lives about an hour and a half away from her mother. “And money’s just made it worse.”
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.
“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,” says Asia. “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.”
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.)
Her unemployment benefits have run out, and Warden says she asked her son for help earlier this month.
After explaining what she owed, she says a woman working for him called back and told her, “Tracy’s offering you a one-shot deal” of $2,000.
“I told her, ‘Thank you, but no thank you. I’m not some person in the street,” Warden says, adding “That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
“God don’t like ugly,” Warden says. “Karma comes back to you.”
Asia also reiterates what her mother told us last week about Morgan’s book, “I Am the New Black.”
“It’s 99 percent bulls—,” she says.
“My mother did everything she could,” Asia adds. “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.”
We wonder if this situation is part of the 99. Morgan writes that regardless of the estrangement from his family, “I love my mother and always will. She did the best she could.”
A spokesman for Morgan did not respond by our deadline.
