– Michigan police say the father of multi-platinum-selling singer Mary J. Blige was stabbed and critically injured.

Battle Creek police say the attack happened about 7 a.m. Thursday at the apartment of 63-year-old Thomas Blige.

Police say he had a neck wound and was taken to Kalamazoo’s Bronson Methodist Hospital, which says it has no information on his condition.
