Tracy Morgan is refusing help from his mother to help pay off her $25,000 mortgage.

The 43-year-old Tracy Morgan has been estranged from his mother, Alicia, since he was a teenager when he moved in with his heroin addicted father who left the family when he was six.

The comedian said his father’s problems developed due to several tours of duty in Vietnam.

After not speaking or seeing each other for 11 years, in which the actor says are, “for reasons that are between us,” Alicia made a request of him to help pay the mortgage bill before her Ohio home falls into foreclosure.

Alicia says that she struggled to raise her son and provided him everything he needed and now he refuses to help her out when she needs it.

In an interview with CNN Alicia says that a rep for her son contacted her to tell her, that Morgan would agree to a “one shot deal of $2,000.”

Alicia said, “I was so upset, I told her to tell Tracy ‘Thank you, but no thanks. I am not some person on the street asking you for a handout, I am your mother,’” adding, “And that was the end of that.”

Asia Morgan, a sister of the comedian, said that if he doesn’t help their mother out soon, she will end up on the streets. Asia also said her mother had lost her job and could no longer make the $400 a month house payments.

“If her mortgage is not paid by February 23, 2012, her home will go into foreclosure,” she said.

In defense of himself Morgan later released a statement to CNN that said the actor was, “saddened that these untrue stories about me have people questioning my commitment to my family.”

The statement also included the fact he had not spoken to his mother in 11 years for private reasons.

Morgan also stated that he has little to no contact with his 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.
