Laurence Fishburne's 80-year-old mother says she's struggling to pay her medical expenses from her arthritis, under-active thyroid, high cholesterol and injuries she sustained in a massive car crash even though she has a rich son.

Hattie Crawford Fishburne claims she's broke and could be thrown out of her Los Angeles apartment on Tuesday, March 31, despite her son being a multimillionaire actor.

Hattie told the New York Post, "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 says she's living off her pension from years of teaching in public schools in Brooklyn and Los Angeles as well as on $3,000 a month from social security.

Mrs Fishburne reveals she hasn't seen the actor in more than a year even though she's tried calling him severally.

Fishburne, who played the iconic character of Morpheus on the 'Matrix' trilogy, is worth an estimated $20million and earns $175,000 per episode of the NBC show 'Hannibal,' according to CelebrityNetWorth.com.

A call to Fishburne's publicist by Daily Mail Online on Monday, March 30 was not immediately returned, reports the site.
