Alicia Warden, mother of comedian Tracy Morgan is facing foreclosure due to a $25,000 debt she’s struggling to pay. && Although, her son Tracy Morgan is reportedly worth $18 million, he refuse to foot the bill. With his mother now coming forth about their estranged relationship, Tracy felt the need to address the issue stating…
“I am saddened that these untrue stories about me have people questioning my commitment to my family. 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.”
Not only is Alicia Warden having financial troubles right now but she also suffers from diabetes. His mother recently sat down for an extensive interview published in Vindy.com, where she talks about her past relationship with her son Tracy Morgan, and how the relationship is beginning to take a toll on her:
“There’s nothing for me to lie about. People are saying that we’re airing our dirty laundry, but he’s the one who wrote about us first. He can’t keep telling lies and expect me to be quiet about it. People don’t know me. I want to tell my side of the story. He hasn’t seen me in a long time. Now he sees how I look.
“I called Tracy last March or April to ask him if he would help pay my mortgage,” she said. “I never gave him an amount — I just sent him the [billing statement], and he said he would do it. But he never did.”
“I pay my bills to keep the lights on and the heat on,” said Warden. “I’ve gone without my medicine. My doctor told me Monday my blood pressure is up so high I look like I’m on the verge of a stroke.”
My windows got shot out last year,” she said. “My car has been shot up. Two of my former foster children [she has had 20] have been killed. I fear for my life, and I don’t tell anyone who I am.”
In 2001, “Saturday Night Live” did a Mother’s Day special, and Warden went to New York and appeared on the show. But what could have been a warm reunion went bad, and harsh words were passed between mother and son. Warden said the distance between them actually had started a little before then.
“He had some attitude and treated [her and her daughter, Asia] like dirt when we did the show,” said Warden. “I still don’t know why.” Still, a photo of Warden and Tracy from the “SNL” shoot sits on her mantel.
Warden visited her son again in 2002 for the funeral of her ex-husband. Warden said her ex was a drug addict who died of AIDS.
“Tracy felt like if I hadn’t put [her ex-husband] out of the house, he might still be alive today,” said Warden. “I said, ‘You’re being selfish … Would you have wanted us both to be dead?’”
I’m trying to find the answer,” she said. “What did I do to him? In my heart, I don’t know what I ever did to him to make him hate me and his brothers and sisters. We were always a close-knit family. Give me an answer, Tracy..this is crazy….watch the full video at vindy.com
