Stars from around the world of music, film and beyond have paid tribute to Oscar-nominated director John Singleton, who has died aged 51.
Singleton, best known for 1991’s ‘Boyz N The Hood’ “passed away peacefully” after being removed from life support in Los Angeles, his family confirmed.
The filmmaker had been in intensive care following a stroke last week.
