Eight days after suffering a stroke in the hospital, John Singleton is in a coma at a Los Angeles hospital, according to court papers.

Sheila Ward applied to be the 51-year-old director's temporary conservator, a judge-appointed individual who looks over a person's health and finances when they can not do it themselves, in an application to California's Superior Court on Thursday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"On Wednesday, April 17th our beloved son/father, John Singleton, suffered a stroke while at the hospital".

Singleton was nominated for an Oscar for 1991's "Boyz n the Hood".

When news first hit that Singleton had a stroke, his family told the press that it was "mild".

Singleton had no existing medical directives in place before the stroke, the documents stated.
