What really happened to John Singleton?
Film director, screenwriter and producer John Singleton, died somewhat suddenly and unexpectedly following complications from a stroke. He was just 51-years-old. Now, his family and the mothers of his children are suspecting there's foul play. The Boyz n the Hood director allegedly checked himself into the hospital on April 17th with leg pain. He ended up suffering a massive stroke there and was put into a medically induced coma. His family made the tough decision to take him off life support twelve days later on April 29th, but there are still many questions surrounding his death.
What's most suspicious to Singleton's baby mamas are the events leading up to Singleton checking himself into the hopsital. According to TMZ, nobody knows how Singleton got to the hospital that day in mid-April. He didn't drive himself, there are no uber or taxi receipts and no family or friends are saying they took him. Nobody can confirm how Singleton arrived at the hopsital and hospital staff says Singleton appeared out of nowhere in a wheelchair. They say he seemed to be pretty out of it.
Singleton's baby mamas hired a private investigator to get to the bottom of it, which comes at the same time as an estate battle over Singleton's home. The public battle is between Singleton's mother, Sheila Ward, and his daughter, Cleopatra Singleton.
Singleton is survived by his children that he had with different women. Two of the women were his ex-wives. Who are John Singleton's baby mamas?
