Woman Sentenced for Stabbing Mary J. Blige’s Father
The woman accused of stabbing Mary J. Blige’s father during a domestic dispute in Michigan earlier this year had her day in court this week.
Cheryl White of Battle Creek was sentenced Monday (Nov. 4) to one year in jail for attacking 63-year-old Thomas Blige, however, she has already served 270 days on charges of assault with intent to commit great bodily harm, according to the Battle Creek Enquirer.
White, who pleaded no contest to the charge last month, was initially charged with stabbing the singer's dad outside of his apartment after she was busted slashing his tires.
Thomas Blige suffered wounds in his neck, arms and chest area, but has since recovered and relocated out of state. According to police documents, the Jan. 23 incident was not the first time authorities were called to his residence for reports of domestic violence.
As part of her plea agreement, White will remain on probation for five years and is prohibited from contacting Thomas Blige during her probation. Additionally, she must pay $17,290 to Mary J. Blige's Mary Jane Productions for nursing services that the 'Right Now' chanteuse has shelled out to care for her father.
