In the early 90s Mr. T was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma, a form of cancer. He kept his public appearances to a minimum at this time, choosing to appear only in commercials. As he began to get better, he began to do movie and television appearances including Inspector Gadget and Not Another Teen Movie. Soon, Mr. T’s cancer went into remission. In 2014, a proposed illegitimate son came public, wanting to sue Mr. T. The case was dropped because the filing and administrative fees were not paid. Mr. T has three children with Phillys Clark. He is a born-again Christian. He spends his time between residences in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Chicago, Illinois.
