Listen to Mary J. Blige on iHeartRadio

The father of Grammy winner Mary J. Blige is hospitalized in critical condition after being stabbed in the neck. 

According to the "Battle Creek Enquirer," Thomas Blige's ex-girlfriend attacked him Thursday morning in Battle Creek, Michigan.  When police arrived on the scene they discovered that Blige had been stabbed three times, including once in the neck.  He was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery. 

Police believe that Blige caught his ex deflating the tires on his vehicle and when he confronted her, she attacked him.  She was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder.  

The pair has apparently had a rocky past.  Police say they have been called to seven domestic disputes between the couple.  In October, the woman was charged with aggravated assault for hitting Blige in the head with a glass candlestick.  She later pled no-contest and earlier this month was sentenced to six-months probation.
