Tracy Morgan may be attracting more attention for his behavior lately than his comedy. In addition to accusations of neglecting his mother, Morgan made a memorable appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show this week.
I grew up with Tom Brady, Morgan said on the talk show last night in Indianapolis. We was both in special-ed school together. Tom Brady used to wear a crash helmet on the little bus, spit on the window.
I guess it's safe to assume Morgan isn't a Patriots fan.
The 30 Rock star and former SNL cast member was reportedly accused of refusing to help his mother, Alicia Warden, who has just lost her job in Ohio last year, according to the Toronto Sun. The 61-year-old cancer survivor is in danger of losing her house because she can no longer afford her mortgage, The Vindicator reported.
I called Tracy last March or April to ask him if he would help pay my mortgage, Warden told The Vindicator. I never gave him an amount- I just sent him the (billing statement), and he said he would do it. But he never did.
Morgan responded, saying that he prefers to keep his person matters private, according to E News.
We all have personal family issues that we have to deal with in life, but I choose to deal with mine in private and not through the media, he wrote.
But his sister, Asia Morgan, told the New York Daily News that this behavior wasn't uncommon for the 43-year-ol funnyman.
Because of the way he's treating our mother, all bets are off, the 41-year-old told the News. He's never been a nice person and money's just made it worse.
