Tracy Morgan Worth Reported $18 Million, But Won't Help Mother Stop Foreclosure of Home?
Is Tracy Morgan really worth $18 million? That's one estimate reported and despite his wealth, he appears to hold enough of a grudge against his own mother that he won't help her stave off foreclosure on her modest home.
The bank is threatening to foreclose on her Ohio home if the mother doesn't make a payment, plus her utilities are also getting ready to be turned off and she has reached the maximum for her unemployment checks.
"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," Tracy's sister Asia says.
"She has a son that can do and she's done everything that she could possibly could [sic] for her family."
According to ABC News, Morgan, 43, was firing back Wednesday night.
"I am saddened that these untrue stories about me have people questioning my commitment to my family," he said in a statement to ABCNews.com. "For reasons that are between us, I have not seen my mother in 11 years and outside of a random call here and there have had little to no contact with my sister."
"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," the statement concluded.
Tracy was in the news recently because of his own health scare.
He collapsed at the Sundance Film Festival.
The 43-year-old actor was rushed to the Park City Medical Center in Park City, Utah after he passed out following an awards ceremony last week.
Ron Nyswaner - the co-director of Tracy's new movie 'Predisposed - blamed a combination of altitude sickness and complications with the actor's diabetes for the collapse.
He explained: "[It was] altitude sickness combined with his diabetes. And he hadn't eaten. He hadn't had enough water".
It had been reported that the recovering alcoholic seemed out of control at dinner, where he is said to have been shouting and falling over but a spokeswoman for the hospital said no drugs or alcohol were found in his system.
