(CNN)Director John Singleton’s child states her dad is “not in a coma” and declares Singleton’s mom, Shelia Ward, is “misrepresenting” his condition, according to a brand-new court filing.
In files submitted on Friday and acquired by CNN, Singleton’s child, Cleopatra Singleton, opposed Ward’s demand, stating her dad is “not in a coma,” as Ward declared.
“Although they do not have a concrete medical diagnosis, my papa is advancing every day … he is just clinically sedated to keep his high blood pressure low and enable the vessels in his brain to recover,” Cleopatra Singleton’s filing states.
Singleton, 51, who was the very first black filmmaker chosen for the very best director Oscar award, is understood for movies like “Boyz n the Hood” and “Poetic Justice.”
A program he co-created for the FX Network, “Snowfall,” was restored in 2015 for a 3rd season.
