Exclusive: Did Director John Singleton Beat Tyra Banks? Physical Abuse Alleged

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News

During a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest on the E-Channel, Tyra Banks said she was physically and emotionally abused by a former boyfriend. Director John Singleton is the most likely woman beater. In 1999, Singleton pleaded “no contest” to charges of battering his then girlfriend.

Via Jet Magazine in 1999:

Famed filmmaker John Singleton recently pleaded no contest to one count of battery and was ordered to produce a 15- to 30-minute film on domestic violence in connection with an assault on the mother of one of his children. The judge also placed the 31-year-old Singleton on three years’ probation and ordered him to attend domestic violence counseling.

Singleton, whose film credits include the critically acclaimed Boyz N The Hood, was charged with the misdemeanor count after a Jan. 2 argument that began when the then 28-year-old mother of his 6-year-old daughter arrived at his home to pick up the girl. The names of the mother and daughter were not released.

The victim and an unidentified woman friend who accompanied her to Singleton’s home told police Singleton struck his ex-girlfriend repeatedly with his fist. The two said he grabbed her neck, choked her and yelled at her to leave his home.

During the interview with Ryan Seacrest, Tyra went on to say she wouldn’t name him and wouldn’t disclose the name of the man who beat her a*s and would not disclose how long ago it was because Seacrest could just easily count back, meaning the guy is one of her public boyfriends (John) in the past. John must of really f*cked her up in the head as Tyra has found it tough to be fine and keep or find a man.
