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.

His other films include 1993's "Poetic Justice", which starred Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur, 1997's "Rosewood", and 2003's "2 Fast 2 Furious". In addition, Wards claims that at the time of his health crisis, Singleton was in the midst of signing some "lucrative deals".

She says if the conservator is not named ASAP, "substantial financial loss will result to the proposed conservatee's estate".

A representative for Singleton did not immediately return CNN's request for comment.

A show he co-created for the FX Network, "Snowfall", was renewed past year for a third season.

The family had initially acknowledged on Saturday that Singleton had suffered a stroke, saying he was "under great medical care" in an intensive care unit.
