A couple of baby’s mothers of the late legendary director John Singleton have commenced battle, with one accusing the other of child abuse.

Rayvon Jones, Singleton’s girlfriend during his untimely passing at age 51, has been ducking for cover from a barrage of incoming fire. Singleton’s mother is shooting in one direction and artillery is coming in fast and furious from another baby’s mother.

Jones told TMZ that she was the subject of an investigation by the Child Protection Services (CPS) that was initiated by another unnamed baby mother who contacted CPS.

According to TMZ, CPS was told that Jones was smoking marijuana around hers and Singleton’s child who happens to have breathing issues. CPS launched an investigation into the allegations of abuse and neglect that included CPS contacting people close to Jones.

Jones said she believes it was another of Singleton’s baby’s mothers who tried to get her caught in the system. For the record, Singleton had seven children with five different mothers.

This has not been a good week for Jones. She was peeled like a banana just days ago by Shiela Ward, Singleton’s surviving mother, who accused her of doing far too little and too late to save Singleton’s life. The Boyz N the Hood director passed away in April 2019 from a severe stroke.
