Mary J. Blige’s Father In Critical Condition After Ex Stabs Him in the Neck

Mary J. Blige's father in critical condition after stabbing Mary J. Blige’s 63-year-old father, Thomas Blige, is in critical condition after being stabbed three times by his former girlfriend.

Blige was taken to the Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Mich., where he was recovering from surgery this morning on his stab wounds.

The stabbing might not come as a huge shock for authorities who say they have handled at least seven domestic violence complaints between Blige and his 50-year-old ex, Cheryl Ann White, since August.

Authorities were called to Blige’s apartment complex around 7 a.m. Thursday morning where they found Blige with three severe stab wounds – the most severe being the one in his neck.

His ex-girlfriend was quickly taken into custody after the incident and is expected to be arraigned some time today in Calhoun County District Court on charges of assault with intent to murder.

Before the stabbing, Blige discovered White outside in the parking lot slashing the tires on his Ford SUV and left his apartment to go confront her.

“During the course of the confrontation, the female stabbed the victim in the neck,” police reported in a statement.

Mary J Blige's father stabbed in the neck After being stabbed multiple times, Blige managed to get back inside his apartment where he then screamed for his roommate to come help.

“He came back in and yelled for me,” said Michael Thomas, Blige’s roommate, who found him bleeding on the kitchen floor.

According to Thomas, blood was spilling from Blige’s throat, side and arm.

“I had to grab towels and cover the wounds the best I could until the rescue came,” Thomas said.

Blige’s ex is still on probation after she entered a no-contest plea on charges of aggravated domestic violence the last time she attacked him back in October.

Mary J. Blige has yet to publicly comment on the news, but she has been very open in the past about her troubled relationship with her father.
