So Tracy Morgan Has Some Serious Mommy Issues…

Tracy Morgan finally responds to his mom, Alicia Warden, and reveals the reason why he will not help her with her financial issues. Alicia Warden owes $25,000 on her house, but is facing foreclosure due to rough economic times, and on top of that she has diabetes affecting her health.  Her son, Tracy Morgan, is reportedly worth $18 million, but will not foot the bill to keep his mom from losing her house, at least that’s what his mom and sister claims. According to Tracy Morgan his reason for not helping his mom is due to the fact that he barely talks to her, and has been estranged from his family for 11 years:

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.

Seriously Tracy Morgan, can’t you afford some therapy to work out these family issues with your mom and sister? I am not sure what lies his family members are telling. They simply said Tracy Morgan is refusing to help. Maybe a poor word choice, but the fact of the matter is Tracy Morgan’s mom’s house is facing foreclosure, and she owes $25,000. He’s allegedly offered her $2000 through his assistant, which would carry her for a month or two, but she turned it down out of pride. His sister, Asia Morgan, says Tracy is a douche bag, which he has proven publicly through his gay rants, oh and remember the time he brought another chick on the red carpet after taking his ex-girlfriend’s kidney. Publicity wise, it just didn’t look good. Publicity wise this looks just as bad. Anyway, Tracy’s mother responds to her son, and it sounds like she’s ready to fight back this time:

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.

His mother sat down for an extensive interview published in Vindy.com, where she talks about her past relationship with Morgan:

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. We were always a close-knit family. Give me an answer, Tracy.

“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?’” {Read the rest of the interview with Tracy Morgan’s mom , this is just sad!}

Dayum Tracy!!! Did she boil your rabbit? Did she steal your checks? What can make a grown man hate his mom so much, and turn his back as she slums it out? Maybe she told him he will never amount to anything, I have no clue, but 11 years of not talking, is not good.

    • @Sue, And you are SO RIGHT! What a rotten individual. It must have taken everything in her spirit to ask for his help and when she did he held her up for ridicule with $2,000? I don’t care why they haven’t spoken or what he thinks she did to him…she COULD have had an abortion but she didn’t.No,he has obviously shown many times that he doesn’t give a damn about anyone,but your MOTHER DUDE? He’s probably wearing one of a dozen $25,000 watches right now..but what goes around,comes right back on around..and even then he won’t understand why.

      • @reita collins,

        I would do for the simple fact she gave me life, I would do out of love, and I would do out of kindness. But that’s just me. I am not attached to money like that.

  2. I did the right thing

  3. My mom intentionally obstructed my relationship with my father for years. She intercepted mail, voicemail, even e-mails to keep me from talking to him. Then she would send me and him e-mails asking me not to “turn my back” on him, and when I would reply she would log into his account and delete them. She finally admitted all of this to me one night. She also interfered with my custody rights to my daughter, enabled my ex-wife to lead a life of crime, and assisted my ex in skipping the state with my daughter ensuring I barely saw her for 15 years.

    All of this because I had the nerve to try to live on my own. She couldn’t stand that I didn’t defer to her on everything, so she began dismantling and destroying my life with my family. I am now ostracized by everyone in my family, and she has even poisoned my relationship with my daughter to the extent that my daughter also thinks I “abandoned” everyone.

    All this time all I wanted was (a) an explanation of WHY this happened, and (b) the God-given right to be a human being and father to my daughter. I was denied all of this.

    Point being, if you haven’t been through something like that it is easy to judge. I’m not saying he is right or wrong. Just saying remember you are judging from the outside.

    • @MrsGrapevine 2,

      What are you talking about? I was talking about my case with my own family, as an example of the kind of family dynamics that can exist that you may known nothing about. You don’t know what happened in his family. I’m not defending him. I’m simply saying that, knowing the initial reaction will be for people to call on him to “make up” with his mom, there may be perfectly valid reasons for him not to.

      I’ll attempt to respond to your statements about my family as best I can. I tried to go to court multiple times, but was repeatedly told by lawyers I was essentially screwed. See, my state is currently in the midst of a family court scandal that is about to explode. One judge was removed from the bench and people are beginning to wake up to what goes on inside this insane “injustice system.” Family court judges in this state have routinely judged on a whim, regularly denying custody or visitation to non-custodial parents. In fact, when my ex-wife and I divorced, the law was that the child belonged to the mother automatically until age seven unless abuse could be proven. One lawyer said it simply: Unless she is having sex with three sailors while smoking a crack pipe and beating your daughter, all in front of the judge, she will get custody. Still, I tried, but when I was told to expect to spend $10-50,000 dollars and STILL probably not get justice I had to give up. I made little money, and when I approached my parents and asked them to testify about what they knew was going on they said “we don’t want to get involved.” That’s rich, since they were the ones making sure my ex got away with everything!

      BTW my ex did not “want to flee”, she was cheating on me (and her next three husbands) rampantly. She is a horrible, horrible woman with a long line of broken men in her wake, men who made the mistake of trying to take care of her only to be taken advantage of. When she left her third husband, her (and my daughter!!) destroyed his house and smeared food in all his carpets and all over his walls. He posted the pictures online for everyone to see. And the kicker — SHE was cheating on HIM using HIS computer equipment to have webcam sex with strangers while he slept. And, once again, she skipped the state and took THEIR daughter and he never saw his daughter again either.

      So don’t give me this self-righteous crap. You have obviously never gone through this and have no idea of the pain I feel as a father knowing my daughter has been raised this way and there has been nothing for me to do except try to talk to her when I can and let her know I love her. But it doesn’t matter now. She’s almost 19 and acts pretty much just like her mom. Only now her mom is starting to prey on HER boyfriends, so it’s only a matter of time before her entire world collapses, and when I BEGGED my family to help me get her out of that situation they refused. AND to this day they say **I** abandoned them all, when I was BEGGING them to help me ensure my daughter was taken care of.

      Consider yourself lucky you haven’t had to experience this. It is easy to spout platitudes, but they are meaningless in the face of reality.

      • I should add, my daughter admitted to stealing from my ex-wife’s third husband when they left, and also admitted to destroying his house. She thought it was funny because “he deserved it”. Sad because of all the scumbag guys she’s had around my daughter he was remarkably decent to all of them.

    • @Dave,
      I agree with you Dave. I am currently in the same siuatioin with my immediate family members. My mom is mentally ill and I receive no help from none of my siblings.I went off on one of my siblings…
      Folks have no right judging a family’s situation unless they are/were in your shoes. Til then step with your opinions and analysis.

    • Let me just say two wrongs don’t make it right. I don’t care what my mother did to me as a human being I don’t want to see anyone living on the street. Certainly not my mother in any case. You don’t have to speak to her to help her out pay the house off and move on with your life, You probably spent 25000 on a weekend vacation/

  4. There’s always 2 sides to a story. I’m sure he has his reasons for not dealing with her. OR, maybe he is a “douche bag”.

  5. @Dave,

    You are right I have no clue about your situation, but obviously I thought you were talking about Tracy, not bringing up your family history.

    Secondly, there are non-profit organizations that help men like you get custody of your child and fight the system for visitations.

    I still find it strange that your parents would side with your ex-wife over you, I would definitely want to hear their side, too, because somethings are just not adding up.

    A family saying you abandoned them because you were just trying to do the right thing doesn’t make sense on paper. It sounds like there is more to this story, and they probably have a very different version. So yes there are two sides to every story, but I wouldn’t stop talking to my family because of it.

    I am not being self-righteous. I just don’t understand why this would make your family see you as bad person.

    • @MrsGrapevine 2, Yes there are two sides. My parents are mentally ill. I did not understand this until many years later. They are both malignant narcissists, google malignant narcissism and it will explain everything. It got considerably worse in the past 15 years, around the time they sided with her and cut me out. She is the same way, so they sided with the one who reflects their mentality instead of the one who tries to be normal. I was calling them on BS and was therefore threatening their egos and their narcissistic supply, therefore I had to be removed. If you read about malignant narcissists you will understand. They don’t think like you do, they literally think others exist to serve them. If you’ve ever watched the movie “Gaslight” you’ve seen a malignant narcissist at work. Once you understand and realize what they are like, its shocking how many there are in society. Horrible people doing horrible things. The end result regarding my daughter is my daughter leaving me a voice message laughing that she knows how much it hurts me to have her yell at me for things that aren’t even my fault, and she said she doesn’t care, and can keep doing it non-stop and then put the phone down and carry on with her life “like nothing happened” while knowing she stabs me in the gut.

      I love her dearly, but she was raised by evil people.

      Sorry, just venting. It’s a horrible thing to realize about your own daughter, and wonder if she will ever be able to adjust to “real” life or if she will simply turn into a monster. I hope for her sake and the sake of everyone around her in the future that she sees the light.

      • @Dave, Also, as I tried to explain, those father’s rights groups didn’t really exist when I tried to get custody, at least not in my state. My wife and I went to lawyers and were basically told we had no chance because of the judicial system here. Within the past 9 months now we’ve found out there is a major scandal brewing in the family court system and there are thousands of people who have been unjustly denied access based on judicial malfeasance. One judge removed, possibly others to come. Too late for my daughter, but at least some other families will hopefully have justice.

      • @Dave,

        I understand malignant narcissism, I wanted to be Social Worker Family Therapist, so I have studied psychology and mental disease. Now is this her actual diagnosis, or is this your diagnosis of your mother. Usually narcissists don’t hang together.

  6. I do feel for her and her daughter but what would they do if there wasn’t a Tracy Morgan. Why hasn’t she tried to have a relationship for 11 years? Now she would like help and she is looking to the media. In my opinion something isn’t right here. I don’t feel like he owes her. Tracy wasn’t this rich 11 years ago and in her absence her has made money. Why does she feel it is her right to have some? We don’t know what his childhood was like. I might have a weird view on things but someone bringing you into this world does not make in an indentured servant to their whims. They had sex and you are here now. How they raise you and what they put into you is what makes for a wonderful parent. One that it would never cross a child’s mind to abandon.

    • @Elle,

      I think for the last 11 years she’s been surviving without a Tracy Morgan in poverty. I don’t think she feel like its her right, or that her son is obligated to pay. She was in a desperate situation and she asked him for help. I don’t know if she ran to the media herself, but now that it is out there she is defending herself. We don’t know what his childhood was like but for past 11 years they both were adults.

      No one has perfect parents, and parents can mess kids up, but I love my life and if just having sex is the only reason I exist, then I will be happy to help anyone who game me my life.

      I stand by my claim. Get counseling and learn to forgive. Holding so much hate and animosity only destroys you and not the other person. Tracy has money, but he’s not happy! I hope both of them take the steps heal and come together. He doesn’t owe her anything, but it would be very nice of him to help. I am sure she has done some good things for him, too in all of his life. I doubt it was all bad.

  7. On another note some family members do have a sense of entitlement as well.

    • @Vee,

      Family members can, but we don’t know if that’s the case here. If they have spoken much in 11 years, I don’t see how his family was acting entitled.

      • @MrsGrapevine 2, You don’t know if that is the case, yet you insist they must “work together” without even knowing what happened.

      • @Dave,

        I don’t know the case, and nor do you, but I am going to be optimistic before I say yes turn your back on her. You are taking Tracy’s side because of your experiences. I’m not taking either side, I’m saying just do what’s right and mature, and perhaps get some counseling. There are some things that people can’t forgive (incest, rape, and murder), but here in this situation it doesn’t sound like it’s that bad. Sounds more like years of hurt feeling and failing to see each other view point.

        As far as you and your situation, it’s only your side, so I can be empathetic for your loss, but I don’t know enough of the story to go off on your mother, daughter, and ex-wife.

  8. You just never know. Family business can be very touchy especially for people on the outside looking in.

    • @Vee,

      True, but no matter how much a family member has hurt me, I couldn’t turn my back on them when they are need. I rather be a bigger person on be on the right side that to wait until it’s too late to forgive or be forgiven. Unless it’s rape, molestation, or incest.

      Maybe it’s just me, but I have never had a family relationship that was all bad. Maybe some ups and downs, but never all downs. I guess some people have those type of relatives that they wouldn’t spit on if they were on fire. I don’t so I guess I am naive as to how you can just say eff em. I rather write a check, and be done.

  9. I understand how you feel. But I can honestly say if my father asked me for money he wouldn’t get a dime. Sometimes people do forgive but they don’t forget. I don’t hold anything against him but he could never get anything from me in the name of “Family”. He better write Oprah. I don’t know Tracy or his mother so I just speak for myself. I’m pretty sure people would feel the same about me for not helping him but to me blood doesn’t make a relationship. There are far more none family members that I would help than family.

    • @Elle, I expected most responses to support the mother. I am very glad to see that is not the case. I hope they can work their issues out, but I don’t think they are obligated to. If he is the jerk and she is the victim, then maybe he will face the music himself some day.

      • @Dave,

        Now that I can agree with. But what I have seen time and time again, is that most of family fights is because the other person only see things from their perspectives. Talking with a mediator or counselor just helps so much more than fighting. I still hope for the best in this situation and in your situation. Coming from someone who has lost her mother, you don’t want to wait until it’s too late. You really don’t!
