BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan police say the father of multi-platinum-selling singer Mary J. Blige was stabbed and critically injured.

Police say his ex-girlfriend is in jail on an attempted murder charge.
 
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.
 
Detective Sgt. Jim Martens tells the Battle Creek Enquirer (http://bcene.ws/1dzw7cO ) that officers recovered the knife and found Blige's ex-girlfriend with blood on her clothing. She's in the Calhoun County jail and is expected to be arraigned Friday.
 
Forty-three-year-old Mary Blige is a Grammy award winner whose hits include "Real Love," "No More Drama" and "Family Affair."
