Black Holes That Turn Into Nothing

As a black hole gathers more matter and distorts space-time more, there must come a point where the space around it gets so "stretched" that it eventually rips space-time. The black hole that the big bang came from, si I understand, was such a black hole. it sucked into itself not only matter and energy, but space-time as well.

I was wondering how much matter would be needed to create a gravitational force great enough to cause this. (maybe the answer is everything in the universe)

I assume that if this did happen, then anyone on the other side of such a rip would not be able to detect the gravitational affect of the black hole any longer as there would be no space-time through which it could propagate. Thus it would seen to others to have disappeared.

Any thoughts?
