Martin star Tommy Ford has passed away at the age of 52, this according to his co-star Carl Payne. “On behalf of the family, we would like to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers,” Payne told TMZ.
This news comes hours after it was mistakenly reported, and tweeted by friend Anthony Anderson, that Ford was already dead. Tommy’s wife, Gina Sasso, clarified the situation by revealing that her husband was in critical condition and on life support after suffering a ruptured aneurysm in his abdomen on Sunday.
Tommy was known and loved, thanks to his hilarious character (of the same name) on the 90’s sitcom. He will surely be missed by many, including his co-star Martin Lawrence, who tweeted his condolences.
