Legendary movie producer and director John Singleton's family has confirmed that they have ordered his doctors to remove him from life support. John suffered a stroke and was in a coma ever since in intensive care and today (4/19) the decision was made by his family.
“It is with heavy hearts we announce that our beloved son, father and friend, John Daniel Singleton will be taken off of life support today. This was an agonizing decision, one that our family made, over a number of days, with the careful counsel of John’s doctors,” the statement began.
“In his private life, John is a loving and supporting father, son, brother, and friend who believed in higher education, black culture, old school music and the power of film,” the statement continued. “We are grateful to his fans, friends and colleagues for the outpour of love and prayers during this incredibly difficult time. We want to thank all the doctors at Cedars Sinai for the impeccable care he received.”
Singleton is know for producing movie classics such as "Boys N The Hood" "Poetic Justice" "Baby Boy" and even directed tv shows like HBO's "Billions" & FX's "Snowfall". He was also the first black and youngest writter-director to get nominated for an Academy Award.
