Mary J. Blige’s father is hospitalized and in critical conditioned after a stabbing incident outside of Detroit this morning. According to reports, Thomas Blige, 63, was stabbed in the neck during a domestic dispute with his former girlfriend.
Battle Creek police found Mr. Blige in his apartment complex at 6:58 a.m. Thursday morning with three stage wounds, one of which was in his neck. He was then taken in for surgery at Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Mich.
According to USA Today, Detective Sgt. Jim Martens said not only did officers find blood in the snow near the entrance drive to the apartment complex, but also found the ex-girlfriend in her apartment nearby, splattered with blood. After being briefly treated for a cut, the woman was taken into custody at Calhoun County jail on a charge of assault with intent to murder.
While the hospital hasn’t revealed an update on his condition, we’ll keep Mary J. Blige in our prayers and hope for her father’s speedy recovery.
