What a horrible person.

What a sad and complicated situation.
On March 30, it was reported that Laurence Fishburne's mother, Hattie Crawford Fishburne, is facing eviction due to her inability to pay rent for seven months.
Hattie, who last talked to her son when Laurence's father died a few years ago, says in addition to facing eviction, she's struggling to meet her basic needs.
As for the Black-ish star, he's nowhere to be found. Laurence's alleged lack of concern has caused great pain for Hattie, who claims she single-handedly raised her only child while supporting his acting dreams.
The actor's mother explained:
"He's gone Hollywood. For 20 years, I funded my son's career. He promised me he would take care of me. He promised me a house, a golden retriever, a calico cat. To this day, I have not got a Christmas present or a ‘Thank you, Mama' present. He hasn't given me a penny. I'm so hurt and disappointed."
Hmm, what's interesting is that the two had a seemingly positive relationship in the past. The mother and son even met former President Bill Clinton together.
The 80-year-old added:
"I can't buy food, clothing and shelter, go to the theater. I haven't bought a dress since I retired. I need to find a benefactor.”
Sheesh, sounds dire.
No word on Fishburne's end of things, but we hope this drama has a happy ending. Hopefully they can connect.

brains slam poetry skills on Brad Samuel L. Jackson!
Samuel gave the performance of a lifetime on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, as he showed us all that he is a master beat poet by doing a snap-worthy recitation of a poem about Boy Meets World!
Holy snakes on a plane! Words cannot describe how AH-Mazing this video is!
Ch-ch-check out the proof that will make you LOL…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
When we say "awk," you say "ward." Awk! "Ward!" Awk! "Ward!"
In a sit down for the upcoming move Robocop, Sam brought up Samuel's Super Bowl commercial, which would have been a great talking point if Samuel had actually done a Super Bowl commercial this year.
But no, Sam meant Laurence's ad for Kia, and while he apologized profusely to Samuel, Mr. Jackson was mercilessly unrelenting in his obliteration of Sam.
Ch-ch-check out Samuel HIGHlarious ripping this poor anchor a new one (above)!!!
There is no spoon!!
Morpheus is back as Laurence Fisburne steps into the mirrored sunglasses and trench coat once again, but this time it's to announce that Kia's trying their hand at luxury cars — and it's all for the Super Bowl's impressive line up of ads!
This one comes out of nowhere, but wow, it really makes quite the visually-stunning turn at the end!
Get blown away (above)!
In a new FILM!!! Not like, serious in LOVE or anything, LOLz!
It seems Selena Gomez has her eyes on that coveted EGOT prize, as not only is she thisclose to debuting her highly anticipated, more "mature" album, her first post-Disney starlet film Spring Breakers also did surprisingly well at the box office…
AND, she's just signed on to star in William H. Macy's directoral debut Rudderless alongside acclaimed actor (and the SEXY lead singer of Stillwater from Almost Famous) Billy Crudup!

Are you guys gettin' hyped for the new Hannibal series on NBC??
At first we really didn't know what to think — a new Hannibal Lecter WITHOUT Anthony Hopkins? — but now that we've had a chance to check out some of the creepy and rad footage from the upcoming prequel, we can say that we're starting to get excited!
Plus, who doesn't want to see the handsome Hugh Dancy dancing around as the new Will Graham?? That, and Mads Mikkelsen was figuratively ripped from our nightmares! LOLz!
If you like to feel uncomfortably nervous and scared, check out the full trailer (above) for the upcoming NBC show!
One of Hollywood's most fearsome serial killers is BACK!!
Back and scaring the crap out of us again, that is! LOLz!
It'll be hard to get past the fact that we're not going to be watching Anthony Hopkins play the iconic role anymore, but we'd say that Mads Mikkelsen fills the pants-fillingly creepy role quite well for the upcoming NBC series Hannibal!
April is shaping up to be a good month for TV if this teaser (above) is any indication! Plus, it has Hugh Dancy as FBI criminal profiler Will Graham, along with Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne, and Gillian Anderson also set to appear in the 13 episode first season!
So, if you like nightmares — CLICK PLAAAAAYYY!! Ha!
