Famed director John Singleton suffered a stroke last week after taking a trip to Costa Rica and experienced problems with his legs. He checked himself into a hospital in L.A. and suffered another stroke Wednesday in his hospital room. This time it was much more severe, putting the director into a coma resulting in his untimely death.
According to legal documentation, John’s mother Shelia Ward, was asking for a judge to appoint her a conservator because he was “unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter.”
Shelia also stated “he was engaged in several business projects and was prepared to sign a lucrative settlement agreement”, which makes his passing even more of a tragedy.
