Tracy Morgan's mother upset over money issues


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- Comedian and "30 Rock" cast member Tracy Morgan is feuding with his mother, a cancer survivor laid off for a year and facing possible foreclosure in Ohio.

Alicia Warden told The (Youngstown) Vindicator ( on Thursday that she asked Morgan last year for help with a $463 monthly mortgage payment and he agreed but never did.

Her unemployment benefits ran out in November and she hasn't made a house payment since.

When she recently asked again, she says Morgan's accountant called to offer a one-time gift of $2,000. She refused it as insulting.

A statement sent Friday on his behalf says Morgan is saddened by untrue stories questioning his family commitment and wants to deal with family issues privately. He says he hasn't seen his mother in 11 years.
