Cleopatra Singleton, 19, is disputing the claim that her Boyz N the Hood director father John Singleton is in a coma. She filed court docs on Friday saying so, in stark contrast to his mother Sheila Ward’s assertion that he is.
Sheila filed papers herself last week saying he was in a coma, in a bid to become his conservator and make business decisions for the 51-year-old while he is incapacitated.
Cleopatra said Sheila is misrepresenting his condition.
"My father is not in a coma, Cleopatra writes, adding that doctors "do not have a concrete diagnosis, my father is progressing every day …. My father is breathing on his own. He is only medically sedated to keep his blood pressure low and allow the vessels in his brain to heal."
She continues, writing that Sheila "has abused this position particularly pertaining to the support of his children." A doctor filed a form with Sheila’s lawyer saying that he is incapacitated, but it did not address whether he is in a coma.
