Following the tragic accident that resulted in the death of one man and left others injured, including comedian Tracy Morgan who remains in critical condition, there was even more going on at the Robert Wood Johnson hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey where the comedian is staying. Morgan’s estranged mother claims that she was turned away from seeing her son by his fiancee.
According to TMZ, Alicia Warden heard about her son’s accident on TV. She said that she went to visit her son at the hospital on Saturday but was quickly turned away by security and Morgan’s fiance, Megan Wallover, who she believes to have something against her.
Warden and her son have had a turbulent relationship, the Star Ledger reports. The two have not seen each other in over 11 years. "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,” Morgan said in a personal statement.
After returning to see him on Sunday, Warden was allowed five minutes with her son who was unconscious at the time. "All I wanted was for our family to be alone with him," she said to TMZ. "I wanted to pray over him and couldn't do that because so many people were in the room."
Morgan and Wallover have been engaged since 2011 and welcomed a baby girl last July. Wallover thanked fans for all the support on social media and has asked in a statement, reported by the Chicago Tribune, to await for official word before speculating Morgan’s condition.
