"John Singleton, the groundbreaking film director, screenwriter, and producer, died Monday in Los Angeles after suffering a stroke on April 17. He was 51. A family spokesperson said Singleton passed away peacefully at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, surrounded by his family and friends," wrote Deadline.
Many were shocked to learn that John had suffered a stroke since he was so young in age. Sadly, his body wasn't able to bounce back from the incident. Prayers are flooding in across the internet for his family at this sad time.
His family has released a statement on his passing:
“We want to thank the amazing doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital for their expert care and kindness and we again want thank all of John’s fans, friends and colleagues for all of the love and support they showed him during this difficult time,” the family said in a statement.
Now, officials are releasing more information concerning his cause of death. According to his official death certificate, John passed away of a stroke.
"The certificate -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the cause of death as acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and hypertension. Singleton's date and time of death was April 28 at 3:30 PM ... a day earlier than when his family made the announcement John had passed," wrote TMZ.
The news stunned some fans due to the timing of the stroke. Many were surprised to learn he actually had the incident a day sooner than was reported.
