John Singleton's 21-year-old daughter, Cleopatra, files a petition in court for her late father's estate to provide her with a monthly allowance to help support her.


Cleopatra Singleton was used to having her dad around to help her pay the bills, but now that he's gone, she's finding it difficult to sustain herself without his help.

Now that there's been a lot of commotion about Singleton's outdated will, the 21-year-old filed a petition in court to help her pay for her bills, car note, and utilities.

Singleton suffered a stroke in April that left him in a coma, before passing away on April 28.

Singleton's Frozen Accounts

Unfortunately for Cleopatra, her dad's finances aren't moving anytime soon, since the court is still figuring out how to fairly split his estate among those he left behind.


Singleton's finances are currently held up in court, and his mother, the one handling his estate now that he's gone, is allegedly not in good terms with Cleopatra.


Knowing this, she took matters into her own hands by filing the petition. The 21-year-old is asking for $2778 a month, plus a one-time disbursement of $4150 to fund a study abroad program that she was hoping to join.

Singleton's Outdated Will

The "Boyz n the Hood" director reportedly left an approximate $35 million, and that's not just about to go to anyone as the court is carefully studying his outdated will.

Singleton's death came as such a shock, that the last will he made was done in 1993 when he only had one son named Justice.


The Claims of Singleton's Children

Now that he has a total of seven children, they are still trying to understand how they'll be splitting his money among them and this resulted in all of them hiring lawyers to defend their interests and get the most out of the upcoming deal.

With his firstborn the only heir to his fortune, his six younger kids are now petitioning to be given a share of the estate. Luckily for them, under California law, they have a legal claim to a portion of his estate for as long as they are not specifically disinherited in the will.
