The father of R&B singer Mary J. Blige is in critical condition after being stabbed allegedly by a former girlfriend.
Thomas Blige sustained three stab wounds, including one to the neck, during a domestic dispute in an apartment in Battle Creek, Michigan. Police say the former girlfriend has been arrested on a charge of assault with intent to murder.
Officers were called to the apartment complex at 6:58 am where they found blood in the snow near the entrance drive. Police found Blige in the apartment as well as the knife that they believe was used in the attack.
Blige was taken to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan where he underwent surgery.
Officers found the former girlfriend in blood-spattered clothes in her nearby apartment. She was taken to the Calhoun County jail and was expected to be arraigned Friday.
