Director John Singleton is in a coma

His family initially said it was mild, but it appears to have been more serious than that. John Singleton suffered a major stroke. He vacationed in Costa Rica and upon his return he started having issues with his legs. He checked himself in to an LA hospital last Wednesday and ended up having a stroke that sent him in to a coma. The 51-year old legendary movie director family released a statement that read as follows.

On Wednesday, April 17th our beloved son/father, John Singleton, suffered a stroke while at the hospital.

John is currently in the ICU and under great medical care.

We ask that privacy be given to him and our family at this time and appreciate all of the prayers that have been pouring in from his fans, friends and colleagues.

Thank you,

The Singleton Family
