Comedian and former “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan is still recovering from the six-car accident over the weekend that left one person dead and several others in critical condition, but his rep tells Us Weekly that rumors of his leg being amputated are false.
“The concern for [Morgan’s] well-being has been overwhelming, but (fiancee) Megan Wollover is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition,” says the rep. “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,” the rep adds. “This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time.”
Morgan’s injuries include a broken femur, nose and several ribs, which he sustained when his limo bus was hit by a tractor trailer and overturned. Four other vehicles were involved.
