Tracy Morgan and Meghan Wollover attend the Spike TV's 'Don Rickles: One Night Only' on May 6, 2014 in New York City.
Tracy Morgan's mom, who had not seen the comedian in more than a decade, was turned away from his hospital room over the weekend when she tried to visit him following the deadly pileup on the New Jersey Turnpike Saturday.

Alicia Warden told TMZ that her son's fiancée, Megan Wollover, blocked her from seeing the "30 Rock" star after he was critically injured when a Wal-Mart truck slammed into his limo bus on the New Jersey highway. She was reportedly allowed in the following day, but only for five minutes while other people were present.

"All I wanted was for our family to be alone with him," she said. "I wanted to pray over him and couldn't do that because so many people were in the room."

Warden told the gossip site that no one even informed her about the accident, and said she learned about it by watching the news.

The rift between Morgan and his mother reached new heights in 2012 when his younger sister, Asia Morgan, told the New York Daily News her brother was a "d*****bag" for not financially assisting their mother trying to keep her home in northeast Ohio.

"I am saddened that these untrue stories about me have people questioning my commitment to my family," the 45-year-old comedian said in a statement at the time, according to E! News. "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."

E! News reported that Morgan briefly talked about the feud in his 2009 book "I Am the New Black."

"As of this moment, I'm estranged from my own mother and most of my family, and I'm not sure that's going to change much," he said in the book. "I'm not saying why, I'm just saying that's how it is. It's okay though. I've gotten used to it. I'm an island, kind of like Antigua: hot and humid, definitely a destination of choice if you want to get freaky or just kick back. And pretty isolated."

Prosecutors claim that Wal-Mart truck driver Kevin J. Roper hadn't slept for 24 hours prior to the Saturday accident that injured Morgan and killed another passenger in the limo bus.
