Mary J. Blige’s father is in critical condition after being attacked by his former girlfriend. The Battle Creek Enquirer reports he was stabbed three times, including once in the neck.
Reportedly, 63-year-old Thomas Blige was a victim of a domestic dispute that went down with his former lover in an apartment in Battle Creek, Mich. The stabbing was so bad, Blige was taken to nearby Bronson Methodist Hospital and rushed into surgery.
