Tracy Morgan’s rep, Lewis Kay released a statement to comment on the actor’s condition. The statement was prompted by rumors that were spreading around the internet. Morgan was involved in a fatal car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike on Saturday.
A few of the rumors that have surfaced online have suggested that the 30 Rock alum had to have a leg amputated. A rumor Kay called “completely fabricated.” Tracy Morgan is said to be in “critical but stable” condition.
Kay said in the statement, “Tracy remains in critical but stable condition. His fiancée, Megan is by his side. The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but Megan is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition.”
“Rumors about amputating his leg are completely fabricated. As we shared yesterday, Tracy had surgery on his broken leg. We are working closely with the incredible staff at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to share information when it is available. This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time. Thank you.”
