John Singleton's eldest daughter Justice, 26, will inherit his $3.8 million estate following his sudden death, RadarOnline.com can report.
In 1993, when Justice was his only child, he wrote a will that listed her as his beneficiary. As a result, he did not include any of his other six children in his last wishes.
Fortunately, however, the children were not specifically excluded and under California law may have a strong case to divide his inheritance.
As RadarOnline.com reported, the 51-year-old Boyz n the Hood director, who had quietly been battling hypertension, became sick after returning to L.A. from a trip to Costa Rica, and was hospitalized. While under medical care, he suffered a stroke, which was initially described as "mild."
Singleton is survived by his mother, Sheila Ward, his father, Danny Singleton and his children Justice, Maasai, Hadar, Cleopatra, Selenesol, Isis, and Seven.
