There are new developments that are reportedly exacerbating already strained relations as it pertains to the estate of the Poetic Justice and Hustle & Flow filmmaker and producer.

First, TMZ states that Singleton’s will is outdated.

Secondly, there is the matter of Singleton’s actual overall worth. In the will, which was made out to Singleton’s eldest daughter and sole heir, Justice, the reported worth is about $3.8M. However, the value of the entire estate that belonged to Singleton is said to be closer to $35M.

Singleton’s mother, Sheila, was named the executor of Singleton’s will and she listed his assets at $3.8M. This would mean that around $31M is not accounted for. TMZ speculates that Singleton created a trust with assets that, by law, does not have to go through the arduous process involved in the probate court. The media does not have access to the details of who gets what and how much in the trust because those records don’t have to be filed in court.

Perhaps this is what the youngest of Singelton’s seven children, Cleopatra Singleton, was publicly complaining about when she spoke against her grandmother Sheila. Cleopatra claims that Sheila was trying to cut the children out of Singleton’s estate.

Back to the actual will. Singleton made his will in 1993 when he only had one child, Justice. However, according to California law, unless the other children were specifically written out of the will, then they are entitled to a share of Singleton’s assets.

With the way things have played out thus far since Singleton slipped into a coma that he never recovered from, there are certain legal challenges revolving around Singleton’s will.

Former NFL star running back Chris Johnson is accused of planning and financing a successful “murder-for-hire” scheme that left two dead and being heavily involved in a major drug trafficking operation in central Florida, prosecutors allege.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, an informant claimed that Johnson sought and obtained retribution after alleged gang members shot him and killed his friend in a drive-by shooting in Orlando, Florida, on March 8, 2015.

Prosecutors relied on testimony from the informant, who alleged that Johnson forked over a handsome stack of bills to have rising gang member Dominic Bolden kill the suspected shooters. The informant said Bolden successfully carried out the murderous mission, killing one of the suspected drive-by shooters on Jan. 19, 2016, and the other on June 24 of the same year.

Bolden’s reward was multipronged, the informant said in an affidavit, according to the documents obtained by TMZ. Not only did Bolden get the bag for killing Johnson’s gang enemies, but he also rose up the ranks of the local gang in Florida, eventually becoming the “de facto leader” of the drug trafficking organization (DTO). Thirdly, Johnson allegedly provided seed money and a major contact in order for Bolden to traffic as much narcotics as possible, according to the documents.

Neither the state’s attorney’s office nor the Florida attorney general returned media inquiries to confirm this information.

Johnson, 34, who last played in the NFL in 2017, has not been charged with any crime and vehemently denied involvement in any murder or drug operation through his representative.

The former star running back rose to national fame when he rushed for more than 2,000 yards for the Tennessee Titans, a rare feat in the NFL. He played six of his 10 seasons with the Titans before being traded to the New York Jets.
