Mary J. Blige‘s father was in critical condition Thursday afternoon after he was allegedly stabbed in the neck by his ex-girlfriend.
Police say they were called Thursday morning to the apartment complex in Battle Creek, Michigan, where 63-year-old Thomas Blige lives. They say he was found in his apartment with three stab wounds, including one to his neck, according to the Battle Creek Enquirer. He was subsequently hospitalized, and he underwent surgeries for his injuries.
Police believe Thomas Blige and his 50-year-old ex-girlfriend, who is not named in the Battle Creek Enquirer report, had a domestic dispute after he saw her deflate the tires on his car.
The ex-girlfriend was treated for a cut at a hospital, and was later arrested on a charge of assault with intent to murder. She’s expected to be arraigned Friday.
Police say they have handled seven domestic violence complaints between Thomas Blige and his ex-girlfriend since last August.
