The Daily News reports that Tracy Morgan’s mother is close to foreclosure but that her son has rebuffed her request to pay off her mortgage.
Alicia Warden, Morgan’s mother, says her son only offered a one-time payment of $2,000.
Warden owes $25,000 on her home in northeast Ohio and says that unless she makes the minimum payment by February 23, the bank will foreclose on her home.
Warden lost her job in February 2011 and not long after approached Morgan about paying off her mortgage. He initially agreed but then backed out when he accused her of giving an interview with the media. Warden denies this allegation.
Now, Warden’s unemployment benefits have run out and her son is offering only a one-time payment of $2,000. According to Forbes, Morgan is worth $18 million.
The actor’s sister is sparing no words in describing how she feels about her brother’s behaviour, calling him a “d—- bag” in comments to The Daily News:
“He’s never been a nice person…And money’s just made it worse.”
“My mum’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..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.”
A spokesman for Morgan did not respond to The Daily News’ request for comment.
