UPDATE: 63-year-old man stabbed in Battle Creek is the father of Mary J. Blige

BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) --    The father of Grammy winning recording star Mary J. Blige is lying in the Critical Care Unit at Kalamazoo’s BronsonHospital after multiple surgeries to close knife wounds. Battle Creek Police say he was attacked by an angry ex-girlfriend. 

 63-year-old Thomas Blige reportedly discovered the 50-year-old woman slashing his tires, outside his unit at the Arbors Apartments.

When he confronted her, police say she turned the knife on him, stabbing him three times.

   The two apparently have a history of domestic violence and the break-up required periodic police intervention.  

   She was arrested with his blood still on her clothes for assault with intent to murder,  and lodged in the Calhoun County Jail pending arraignment.
