UPDATE – 3:30 PM PT

Tommy Ford, who starred on Martin,  has died at the age of 52. He had been on life support since Sunday.

A source close to the family confirmed the news telling People: “They were trying to hold on until everybody got there, but it couldn’t happen.”

He leaves behind his wife Gina Sasso.

Former Martin star Thomas “Tommy” Mikal Ford is on life support after suffering an aneurysm.

Now hospitalized in Atlanta, the 52-year-old’s health has deteriorated following complications from knee surgery last month.

Ford’s wife Gina confirmed the news saying he suffered the aneurysm in his abdomen on Sunday and isn’t expected to make it through the night.

Earlier in the day, Blackish star Anthony Anderson caused panic after he erroneously tweeted out that the comedian had already passed away. Anderson has since deleted the tweet and revealed he was given misinformation.

Ford played Martin Lawrence‘s best friend Tommy on all five seasons of the Fox hit series.

He recently appeared on Brandy Norwood‘s BET sitcom Zoe Ever After.
