The man who likes to describe himself as a serious director, John Singleton, is an Academy award nominated director who specializes in making issue-based films that can appeal society weather they are thriller, drama or romantic. For the competitive director, his movie should always be an issue based and it doesn’t matter if the plot of a movie takes violence and abuse as the sole base. Mostly, John Singleton movie try to showcase issues in the African American society.
He hails from the ghetto areas of LA. More precisely, he has spent his childhood in LA’s tough places such as The Bottom, Barre and Hoovers. However, he despises the ghettos and its never-progressing culture.
Interested in movie making since his kid days, John was always encouraged by his supportive parents to do whatever makes him happy.
He says that he was quite different from his friends (in an interview). Because of his good upbringing, he was already able to choose what is right and wrong since his early days. He utilized his childhood days by reading books and visiting places. Not only that, he was smart and strong enough to stay focused to fulfill his childhood dream and that was making movies.
Now fast forwarding to 2015, we praise him for big-budget hits such as “Boyz n the Hood (1991 director& producer)”, “Poetic Justice (director & screenwriter)”,”Higher Learning (director, producer & screenwriter)”, “Shaft (director, producer & screenwriter)”, “Baby Boy (director, producer & screenwriter)”, “Four Brothers (director)”, “2 Fast 2 Furious (director)” and “Abduction (director)”.
While he has enjoyed more success than failure in his two decades in the industry, he will also be remembered for critically acclaimed but commercially un-successful movies namely “Black Snake Moan (producer)” and “Rosewood (director)”, and also for disastrous reception of the movie “Illegal Tender (producer)”.
Nevertheless, he is a happy man when the subject of the matter is independent movies. Indie hits namely “Baby Boy” and “Hustle and Flow” have enhanced his CV. However, he has also seen failure in the category with complete failures namely “Woo” and “Black Snake Moan”.
And this 2015, the rich man had his television debut as a director. He directed an episode (1st season, episode 5) of Fox’s hip-hop music focused drama television series Empire.
Previously, his name was attached to the long-awaited biographical film based on the life of belated legend rapper Tupac. However, he left the project in April, 2015 citing the people who are making the movie have no love/respect for Tupac and his reputation. Anyway, fans are dying to hear about his new project and we wonder what it is.
Now moving on to his physical configuration, the Los Angeles native of African American ethnicity is not a tall man with the height of 5 feet and 6 inches. His head is bald. Plus, his clear face is sure to turn creasy because of ageing.
And at the age of 47 as of 2015, he is in a middle-adult according to Erikson Psychosoical stages. And, the basic conflict at this stage is “Generatively” vs. “Stagnation”. During such stage, what Erikson says is that a person gets the feeling of being productive if he has settled down with a relationship and established his career. As for the director, he has certainly achieved a lot career wise, but what about the relationship part that we call family? Sure, family creates the virtue of care that is the important achievement of the stage.
So, we hope he is happy and has good terms with his children.
Nevertheless, his love life has been as rich as his CV. His ex-wives are Tosha Lewis and Akosua Gyamma Busia. He has six children in total.
Currently, he is allegedly dating his mysterious African American girlfriend that everyone wants to know. Their relationship rumors came to limelight in the year 2012 when various websites started posting their combined pictures on the web.
So, there is a possibility that they are still dating. Not only that, their is also a possibility that the mysterious girl is already his wife. And, can it not be that they went through a divorce after remaining married for few years?
However, the irony is we cannot verify anything. Until we have a strong proof to say otherwise, it will be safe to say that he is not married and not dating anyone.
As for the straightforward director we haven’t heard gay rumors about him.
Beside his directorial charisma, he has huge net worth of $40 million US dollars. We guess that’s enough to attract a large number of women.
