John Singleton is dead at 51

TMZ is reporting that acclaimed Director John Singleton has died at the age of 51.

A Singleton family rep says he passed “peacefully, surrounded by his family and friends.”

The news comes more than a week after the famed director suffered a massive stroke. As we first reported … John’s mom, Shelia Ward, filed legal docs asking the judge to appoint her temporary conservator because he was “unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter.” He had been in a coma in ICU at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.
