Peter took to Instagram to share his most recent memory of Singleton, who he ran into at the Prime Hotel in Miami about five or six weeks ago. Just hours prior, Peter had shared his hopes for Singleton's recovery while he was in a coma after suffering a stroke on April 17. "I have been all week praying for my friend @johnsingleton to wake up and feel better, GOD, please don’t take him yet," Peter said.
Peter then shared his initial reaction after hearing of the Boyz n the Hood director's passing. "I am extremely, extremely saddened by this because he was a good guy, and he was a guy that's for black people, and he was a guy that was trying to put us on another level at all times. He was an artist," he said.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta club owner ended the video by saying that he has taken away something important from experiencing this loss. "I just wish this guy was still with us. And it's really, really f--king sad. It's really sad. Because I just saw him less than two months ago, and we talked for 10 minutes in the lobby of the Prime Hotel. And now he's not here," Peter said. "So I'm telling you for everyone out there, if you care about anybody, think about how much you're gonna miss them when they're not here. And let them know how much you care about them today."
Kenya Moore also opened up about the great impact Singleton left on her life after she met him 25 years ago. "When I tell you my heart is crushed. I met #JohnSingleton around 1994. He was always so kind, smart, funny and sweet and he was a true visionary. He was so humble and fun and was 'woke' when that wasn’t even a 'thing' back then," she shared in a post that featured a throwback photo of herself with the director.
"John, you are a class act, loving father and great friend and mentor. Your heart is pure and I pray for your family for this tremendous loss. Your art will live on. You are a part of history. We love you. Rest In Peace," she concluded.
