    • REPORT: JOHN SINGLETON IS IN A COMA

      The iconic Boyz in the Hood director John Singleton is in the hospital after suffering a stroke, and his condition has worsened, according to multiple reports. According to legal documents obtained by The Blast and ET, Singleton, 51, is in a coma. His family is attempting to establish a conservatorship for him.

      His mother, Sheila Ward, is requesting that she be made Singleton’s temporary conservator because he is "unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter."

      Singleton did not reportedly have a living will, which stipulates how he wants doctors to proceed in a medical emergency.

      According to the legal documents obtained by ET, Singleton was in the midst of several business projects when he had a stroke, and was prepared to sign a lucrative deal. Ward is requesting that she be put in charge of his affairs.

      She says if the conservator is not named ASAP, "substantial financial loss will result to the proposed conservatee’s estate."

      According to a doctor’s submitted statement, Singleton was suffering from "major impairment to motor skills and psychological functions, including his ability to ‘reason logically.'"

    • JUSSIE SMOLLETT BACK IN AT 'EMPIRE'?

      Jussie Smollett appears to be in Empire exec’s good graces. Page Six and TMZ snagged pics of Smollett leaving lunch at NYC’s Lafayette restaurant Wednesday, where he was dining with showrunner Brett Mahoney.

      Mahoney has publicly stood by Smollett as he first reported a hate crime against himself on January 29th, then got accused of staging it, only to see those 16 charges of disorderly conduct and lying to the police get dropped. The entire case is now under investigation, with many questioning the handling of the investigation by police and prosecutors.

      Earlier this week, Empire creator Lee Daniels also stood by Smollett and said they are considering bringing him back. Several castmembers, including Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard also wrote a letter to Fox execs asking them to allow him to stay.

      Meanwhile, the last episode Smollett appeared in in Season 5 of the show showed a slight uptick in ratings, but still posted low figures for the series, a pattern of low ratings that began when the scandal first broke.

      KIM FOXX IN HOT WATER

      A judge meanwhile opined that Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx acted hypocritically when urging charges be dropped against him. Cook County Judge Marc Martin compared her handling of another person accused of disorderly conduct: "I’d like to know why Ms. Clark is being treated differently than Jussie Smollett. It’s a disorderly conduct case. A lot less egregious than Mr. Smollett’s case. I have a problem with it."

      Foxx has been criticized for her handling of the case, and three members of her team, including her chief ethics officer and spokeswoman have left in the wake of the scandal.

    • KATE MIDDLETON AND PRINCE HARRY MAKE NICE

      No royal feud here folks, screams an appearance from Kate Middleton and Prince Harry, amid ongoing rumors of tension between Kate and Prince William and Harry and Meghan Markle.

      Harry joined Kate, 37, at her appearance Thursday honoring fallen Australian and New Zealand veterans during the annual Anzac Day of Commemoration at Westminster Abbey. The pair appeared friendly and close as they walked inside. Negative rumors have dogged the previously dubbed Fab 4 as Harry and Meghan reportedly mull a move to Africa because of the feud, and the two have formally split their royal households.

      Still, between this an a recent sweet Instagram exchange (Meghan & Harry wished Kate & William’s son Louis a happy birthday), it seems that even if things are tense, they’re doing their best to keep up appearances.

      During the ceremony itself, onlookers were given a peak at the complicated royal seating arrangements. Royals are always seated in order of precedence, with the highest-ranking royal closest to the altar. Since William (the future king) was away, Kate didn’t get her normal seat by his side. And since she is not a royal by blood, Harry got the top spot with Prince Richard, the Queen’s cousin and 26th in line for the throne, beside him.

    • PETE DAVIDSON AND KATE BECKINSALE ARE DONE?

      The romance that titillated many and took everyone else by surprise is over, according to reports. Kate Beckinsale, 45, and Pete Davidson, 25, were hot and heavy for a few months, but it seems that their passion may have burned out.

      Davidson and Beckinsale got together after his equally public and remarked upon engagement to pop star Ariana Grande fizzled out. The SNL star and Beckinsale were first spotted together at a Golden Globes party in January; in the months after, they were photographed making out at hockey games and in cars.

    • WENDY WILLIAMS JOKES ABOUT POISON CUPCAKES

      Just days after news broke that police investigated Wendy Williams’ ex Kevin Hunter for poisoning her, she joked about poisonous cupcakes.

      She made the cracks during her rebooted "After Show" YouTube series Wednesday.

      Williams quipped: "The woman who won Eye Candy happened to have been the woman who gave me — well now she told me they were cupcakes," she said. "I saw on the box it said cupcakes from The Cupcake Man or something like that in Jersey, and a legit place so I know they’re not poisonous, so I’m going to share them with the crew … after I take mine. Just a few. Just a few. I don’t want to pop a button by eating too many."

      Earlier this week, Page Six got a police report from January that showed a tipster who claimed they worked at her show shared their concerns with police. When they eventually gained access to Williams, who was huddled up in bed, she denied the allegations.
