Tracy Morgan has been through A LOT.
While we’re so happy to see Tracy hitting up Saturday Night Live and embarking on a new comedy tour after his devastating car crash, it saddens us to know that he was once in so much emotional pain. In fact, the incident became so harrowing for the comedian admitted to Rolling Stone Magazine that he once considered suicide.
Morgan’s struggle was extremely tough due to his mass of physical injuries and fear that he would lose his “funny”.
The actor confided:
“I said, ‘If my funny ever went away, I’d die.’ And I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts – I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn’t walk.”
Wow. How heartbreaking.
Luckily for Tracy, he had the support of his wife Megan Wollover, children, and fans during this trying time. We don’t even want to think about where Trace would be today if it weren’t for his loving family!
Today, the comedian is looking towards the future and knows there’s plenty he still needs to do here on earth:
“I still have shit here to do. It’s gonna take more than 18 wheels for me to get out of here. I have to raise my girl, raise my wife, raise my family. Gotta keep my octopus alive. Gotta keep my sharks alive. Those are God’s creatures! I’m needed!”
Ha! We love how Tracy’s sense of humor was not affected one bit in the crash!
Congrats on your amazing recovery, Tracy!
