Shelia Ward, Singleton's mother, on Thursday asked a judge to appoint her as a temporary conservator.

Friends, colleagues and fans including Viola Davis, Mark Wahlberg and Guillermo Del Toro have offered prayers and wished Singleton well since the announcement.

The gritty tale of gangs in South Central Los Angeles marked the acting debuts of Ice Cube and Morris Chestnut, and also starred Cuba Gooding Jr., Laurence Fishburne, Nia Long, Regina King and Angela BassettHe later directed Michael Jackson's video for "Remember The Time".

The documents put the value of Singleton's estate at $US1.4 million.

One of the new photos from the upcoming episode shows her outside on the ramparts with Arya (Maisie Williams). Keep in mind those pesky theories of Bran turning into the Night King in the finale still keep persisting.

She wrote that becoming temporary conservatorship would prevent a "substantial financial loss" for her son, People writes.

According to court documents, Singleton suffered a "major stroke" eight days ago.

She claims there is now a "financial emergency" and she needs a temporary conservator to be named immediately.

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

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.
