While condolences pour for John Singleton, following news of his passing, statements are released from his publicist saying the Boyz n the Hood director has not passed, though he is on life support.

Singleton is said to have suffered a stroke earlier this month.

According to USA Today, while most notably known for his films including "Poetic Justice," "Shaft," "Baby Boy," "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "Four Brothers," Singleton's recent projects include the FX Networks TV series "Snowfall,"  and directing the fifth episode of the network's "The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story."
