JOHN SINGLETON, 51, PASSES AWAY—TAKEN OFF LIFE SUPPORT FOLLOWING COMPLICATIONS OF A MASSIVE STROKE
Monday, Apr 29, 2019

American film director, screenwriter and producer John Singleton, 51, was taken off life support at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following complications of a massive stroke on April 17th. His family made the following announcement before he died.

“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,” Deadline reports. “This was an agonizing decision, one that our family made, over a number of days, with the careful counsel of John’s doctors.”

Singleton was born and raised in South Central L.A. and graduated from University of Southern California before launching his entertainment career. The director made his film debut with Boyz n the Hood—making him the first  African-American to be nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay at age 24. His filmography includes classics such as Poetic Justice, Higher LearningBaby Boy, Hustle & Flow, Four Brothers and more. Expanding into the music space, John directed Michael Jackson’s iconic “Remember the Time” video.

We are praying for his family, friends and fan alike during this difficult time.
