John Singleton’s Daughter Gets Restraining Order Against Father’s Best Friend

John’s daughter has called on the courts for protection.

John Singleton sadly passed away at  and so far the wake of his death has been unsettling for his family.  earlier about the private investigator that was hired by John’s baby mother who is suspicious about the events leading up to John’s stroke that put in in a coma. TMZ now reports that John’s daughter, Justice, has put a restraining order on Avance Smith, a close friend of John’s.

According to the publication, John and Avance were so close, they would call each other cousins. Sometimes Avance would act as John’s security. It’s unclear as to why Justice has gone ahead and requested a restraining order on her father’s friend. 

The move comes one day after Sheila Ward, John’s mom, filed an emergency request for control of his assets since someone had allegedly gone into John’s office and stolen valuables. Avance has no current connection to the case, but it’s interesting that both moves are so close together.
