Report: Thomas Mikal Ford From 'Martin' on Life Support

Prayers up for the TV star.

He is known as a fan favorite on the iconic sitcom Martin, but recent reports indicate that Thomas Mikal Ford, also known as Tommy, is currently fighting for his life in the hospital.

The actor's wife confirmed to TMZ that he is currently on life support in an Atlanta hospital after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen. He has been hospitalized since Sunday and his health has reportedly only gotten worse since.

Despite word currently circulating on social media that he has passed, actress Terri J. Vaughn and The Hollywood Reporter writer Ryan Parker confirm that he's currently still on life support:

We are keeping Ford in our prayers at this time.
