John Singleton‘s family has released a statement announcing they will remove him from life support today.

The statement reads:

It is with heavy hearts we announce that our beloved son, father and friend, John Daniel Singleton will be taken off life support today.

This was an agonizing decision, one that our family made, over a number of days, with the careful counsel of John’s doctors.

Early Monday morning, erroneous reports of John’s death spread like wildfire until his rep released a statement revealing he was on life support, still alive, but non-responsive.

Please keep John and his family uplifted in prayer.
