***UPDATE From Singleton’s Family**********

New info has been released by the family of John Singleton, via TMZ, regarding the stroke he’s suffered.

It was initially reported that the 51 year old director was rushed to the hospital on Saturday (4/20/2019) morning, after having a stroke. However, though he did in fact have a stroke, family members have now confirmed that Singleton actually checked himself into a hospital ‘earlier this week,’ after experiencing weakness in his leg. The family says his stroke may have been triggered from by a plane flight he’d recently taken from Costa Rica back to the states.

The GOOD NEWS, according to his family, is that doctors say John Singleton’s stroke was “mild.” However, he’s still in the hospital, where he is  currently undergoing tests and also doing rehab.
