Over the weekend the sad news first broke about Tracy Morgan’s hospitalization as a part of a massive accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, and as a result of that now some pretty terrible rumors are starting to spread about what is going to happen to him. There are some saying that the “30 Rock” star is near death, whereas others claim that he is about to have his leg amputated as a result of all of the injuries that he suffered.
At the moment, though, his rep wants to set the record straight as much as possible in saying that neither one of these things are happening. With that being said, though, caution is patience is asked for here while he continues along what is going to be a very difficult recovery process:
“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.”
Most within the Tracy camp have remained silent since the accident and will most likely continue to do so over the course of several days and weeks ahead. It’s hard not to root for him to come back and be better (and funnier) than ever before after going through all of this. We’ll be wishing him well every step of the way.
