Back in June of 2014, Tracy Morgan was involved in a car wreck that claimed the life of his best friend and nearly paralyzed the beloved comedian.
Obviously, no financial compensation can make up for that kind of loss and trauma, but Wal-Mart (the corporation that owned the truck that struck Morgan’s tour bus) certainly tried it’s best to do exactly that.
While appearing on NYC radio show The Breakfast Club this morning, fellow comic Damon Wayans revealed that Morgan received a whopping $90 million settlement from the retail giant.
Wal-Mart’s negligence was clear from the start, and it was widely reported that their driver had been awake 24 hours at the time of the crash.
Still, $90 million is a surprising amount of cash that serves a nice silver lining to a horribly black cloud.
Morgan married Megan Wollover last month, and the couple recently purchased a $14 million homr in New Jersey.
