Thomas Blige, the father of soul diva Mary J. Blige, was stabbed in the neck in Battle Creek, Mich., on Jan. 23 after fighting with an ex-girlfriend. Mr. Blige, 63, is in critical condition after the brutal attack.
Mary J. Blige recently found trouble with a certain Burger King ad, and the drama hasn’t ended for her there. The queen of hip-hop soul’s charity foundation — Foundation For The Advancement Of Women Now — is getting sued from all different angles. From the likes of TD Bank to a lineup of musicians playing at various Mary galas everyone seems to be having their problems with FFAWN.
Commercials may not be her thing, but perhaps television is. Mary J. Blige has signed on to be a judge on ‘Opening Act,’ a talent search-style reality TV show set to air on the E! network.
