His former girlfriend, who has not been named, was tracked down to a nearby apartment. Reportedly wearing blood-spattered clothing, she was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder. Blige’s famous daughter has yet to comment on the incident. Detective Sgt. Jim Martens told the Battle Creek Enquirer that blood was found in the snow near the apartment’s entrance drive and inside the home. Officers also found the knife they think was used in the attack, he added.
The woman, arrested “without incident,” was taken to Calhoun County Jail and will be arraigned Friday in County District Court. Martens added that cops had dealt with seven domestic violence complaints between the pair since August 2013.
The woman was charged in Oct. with domestic violence after battering Blige with a glass candlestick and was ordered not to be in contact with him.
Blige’s Grammy award-winning daughter, who’s sold more than 50 million albums, has not commented on the incident.
The woman is being held on a 500,000.
