Tommy Ford, the actor widely known for bringing the laughs in the classic TV series Martin, has been placed on life support after suffering a stomach aneurysm.
Initial reports claimed that Ford had succumbed to his injuries, but his wife, Gina denied those allegations to TMZ. She also went on to say that his family is still actively “praying for him.”
Two weeks before Tommy Ford was hospitalized, the 52-year-old actor shared news of a successful knee replacement surgery on Instagram.
Anthony Anderson and Cedric The Entertainer were among the celebrities who took to social media with uplifting words for their beloved friend in prayer.

Of course everyone was waiting for the star of the iconic show, Martin Lawrence, to weigh in on the situation and he just did.
