John Singleton‘s death has been a whirlwind of tragedy and drama. Ever since the news broke that he was in the hospital for a stroke, the darkness just kept on rolling. After being put in a coma, he sadly passed away and people everywhere started to stand up and walk around more on flights after hearing that a 6-hour flight from Costa Rica to Los Angeles may have triggered his stroke. The world is a dangerous place… and it’s even more dangerous when you realize you can’t even trust your friends. John’s family was fighting over money before he died and continued afterwards, and a private investigator was called in to look into the death–which might not have been just a tragic fluke from a bad flight after all. And now, because the drama is never over, John’s daughter, Justice Singleton is trying to get a restraining order from one of his longtime friend’s, Avance Smith.
When John Singleton passed away in April at 51, it sounded like the cause of death was pretty cut and dry. John had checked into the hospital after suffering from a stroke during a flight from Costa Rica to Los Angeles. Then it was revealed he was put into a medically-induced coma, and not long after, he died. During all of that, his family was reportedly fighting with each other over his estate while he was on life support. There’s still some family drama, but this time it involves several people coming together to hire a private investigator who can help them figure out how the events unfolded as they did.
John Singleton’s family announced that shortly after taking him off of life support today, he died. John reportedly was in a coma after suffering a major stroke after a flight from Costa Rica to Los Angeles. He was only 51.
There was some sad news over a week ago when it was reported that director John Singleton was in the hospital after what was described as a mild stroke. Things got worse when it was revealed that the stroke was anything but mild and John was actually put in a medically induced coma. Things are now moving over into even worse territory, as now it’s being reported that while John is still in a coma his family is already fighting over all his money.
Over the weekend, we learned the awful news that Oscar-nominated director John Singleton was in the hospital after having a stroke. We were told that the stroke was a “minor” one and it seemed like he was going to recover. But it seems like sources got things wrong, sadly, and John’s stroke wasn’t so minor. TMZ has now updated the awful news about John with worse news. They say he’s in a coma.
Two-time Oscar nominated writer and director John Singleton, who gave us Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice, Higher Learning and Baby Boy, is reportedly laid up in the hospital after suffering a stroke. So light your Poetic Justice prayer candle (yes, I’m checking to see if Etsy has one and filing a complaint if they don’t) for the man who brought us one of the best lines in cinematic history: “You wanna smell my punane?”
