As reported: Laurence Fishburne may get a lot of love on the big and small screen, but apparently he isn’t showing much of it to his mother.
In a recent interview with the New York Post, Hattie Crawford Fishburne admitted that she is broke and facing eviction from her $1,500 a month Los Angeles apartment, all because her famous son refuses to reach out to her.
‘He’s gone Hollywood. For 20 years, I funded my son’s career. He promised me he would take care of me. … To this day, I have not got a Christmas present or a “Thank you, Mama” present. He hasn’t given me a penny,’ she told the Post.
Hattie Crawford Fishburne’s eviction stems from overwhelming living expenses. Despite receiving $3,000 a month from social security, in addition to a pension from years of teaching in public schools in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, she is struggling to pay the medical bills from her arthritis, under-active thyroid, high cholesterol and injuries sustained in a massive car crash.
While she has made attempts to contact Fishburne, the 80-year-old mother stated that the “Black-ish” star and producer hasn’t returned her calls in a year. Her eviction is scheduled for today (March 31).
