Mary J. Blige's Dad 'Critical' After Alleged Stabbing
Thomas Blige has been hospitalised following domestic dispute...
Mary J. Blige's father is reportedly in a critical condition after having surgery following a domestic dispute with an ex-girlfriend.
According to local reports, 63-year old Thomas Blige was admitted to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Mich on Thursday morning (January 23) after he was allegedly stabbed in the neck by his former lover.
Police are said to have arrested the woman on a charge of assault with the intent to murder and was taken to Calhoun County Jail. She is due to appear in court today.
Detective Sgt. Jim Martens has stated that the argument between Blige and his ex saw the woman deflate the tyres on his Ford SUV - causing the singer's father to go and confront her.
E! News adds that this isn't the first domestic clash between the pair, with complaints between Blige and the 50-year old woman documented since August.
She was charged in October with aggravated violence and was placed on probation for six months after being told to have "non-assaultive" contact with Blige.
Mary - who recently premiered her collaboration with dance duo Disclosure - is yet to comment on the incident.
