R&B singer Mary J. Blige’s father is in critical condition after being stabbed in the neck on Thursday morning. Police claim Thomas Blige, 63, was shanked by his former girlfriend after he confronted her about deflating the air out of his tires.

Mr. Blige was taken to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he underwent surgery for his three stab wounds, including the one to his neck.

The woman, who has not been named, was subsequently arrested on a charge of assault with intent to murder. Authorities add they’ve dealt with seven domestic violence complaints between the pair since August 2013.
