Mary J. Blige’s father, 63-year-old Thomas Blige, was severely injured from stab wounds that he received during a domestic dispute. The violent occurrence happened on Thursday morning inside Mr. Blige’s home in Michigan, according to an ABC News report on Friday.

The local police said the injury to Blige was to the neck. Following the incident, he was rushed to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan. There is no information being given about his condition.

Police say that officers found a knife and an ex-girlfriend of Mr. Blige with blood on her clothes. The ex-girlfriend is now in the Calhoun County jail, and will be arraigned in court today.

Famed singer Mary J. Blige has previously talked about her past. She has said that her father abandoned her and her family when she was just 4 years of age. Her sorry past includes her being sexually violated when she was 5 years old by a male who took care of her.

Mary J. Blige has not made any remarks about the violence against her father.

She is still very active in music, and is nominated for a Grammy award this year for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration as she sings along with Kendrick Lamar’s rap.
