Jennifer Hudson’s half-brother Stephen Angelo Simpson was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly stabbing his estranged wife’s boyfriend Charlie multiple times at the woman’s apartment in Van Buren County, Michigan.
Simpson reportedly forced his way in to her home, and stabbed the man in the face, chest, and arms.
After neighbors intervened, the victim taken to a local hospital, where he received around 30 stitches.
He is expected to recover.
Simpson, who has a history of domestic violence and was arrested for assaulting his wife on Super Bowl Sunday, was on probation at the time of the attack.
He’s set to be charged with first degree home invasion and attempted murder.
The incident is startlingly similar to the tragedy Hudson’s family suffered nearly six years ago.
In 2008, the star’s mother and other brother, Jason, were killed by her sister Julia’s estranged husband.
William Balfour, who also murdered Hudson’s nephew as well, is currently serving multiple life sentences without the possibility of parole.
