“Boyz in Da Hood” director John Singleton is reportedly in a coma after recently suffering from a massive stroke.
Last week it was reported that the famed Hollywood writer and director had a stroke. However, the stroke was more serious than first reported by his family, TMZ reports. His condition is so bad that his family is in the process of establishing a conservatorship for him.
The “Baby Boy” creator suffered the stroke last week after returning from Costa Rica and having problems with his legs. According to the outlet, Singleton checked himself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. and suffered a stroke Wednesday in his hospital room.
Family members had initially characterized the stroke as “mild”, but according to the legal docs obtained by TMZ, Singleton’s mother, Shelia Ward, has asked a judge to appoint her temporary conservator due to the director being
“unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter.”
At the time of the stroke, Singleton was in the process of handling several business projects and was prepared to sign a large settlement agreement. His mother is requesting to handle those affairs and finalize the settlement agreement, TMZ reports.
