According to TMZ, who spoke to Singleton’s publicist he has not yet passed away.
John’s publicist tells us the famed director is alive and on life support at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. We’re told John is still in a medically-induced coma and is non-responsive and not getting better.
I just got an email from John Singleton’s publicist about that one report saying he died early Monday morning.
She said: “John is still in life support. That reporting is inaccurate.”
