UPDATE: Unfortunately Tommy Ford passed away at 52.
Prayers are going up for actor Tommy Ford, aka “Tommy” from 90’s sitcom Martin, who is reportedly on life support. According to his wife, an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen and he is currently in an Atlanta hospital.
Unfortunately, the situation is looking very bleak.
Ford has been hospitalized since Sunday and his health has declined ever since.
He is currently on life support and is not expected to make it through the day.
Earlier, Ford’s friend, Anthony Anderson, tweeted that Ford had died — but at the time, he was still alive.
Ford’s wife, Gina, says the family is still praying for him.
Tommy starred in all 5 seasons of “Martin” as the title character’s level-headed best friend, who often played a straight man to Martin’s crazy antics.
From the looks of his Instagram is seems the Ford was initially in the hospital for a knee replacement surgery about a week ago, but was released and rehabbing.

Hey Family…I thank you all for all your prayers…God heard you!!! My doctor was a little surprised that I was stronger than anticipated for an old fat fart replacing a knee. He said he knew the knee was bad but after opening me up it was much worse than he thought, but God is good! I passed the test and was released a day earlier! I'm in a little pain which is expected after a major surgery but I started therpy this morning and on my way to recovery! Thanks for your prayers and words of encouragement! Love y'all!!! #thepowerofprayer #kneereplacement #recovery #therapy #blessed #newday #godisgood
