Jennifer Hudson's brother is in police custody after allegedly repeatedly stabbing a love rival in the face in front of his wife.
Stephen Simpson is said to have gone into a jealous rage at his estranged spouse's apartment in Michigan overnight on Monday.
He was being held in custody in Michigan on Tuesday and is expected to be charged with home invasion and attempted murder.
Jailed: Jennifer Hudson's brother is being held after allegedly stabbing a man in the face repeatedly.
According to WWMT, 45-year-old Simpson, who is the singing star's half brother, has a history of domestic violence, and police claim he knifed his victim several times, including in the face, before they fled to seek help.
He was already on probation after being arrested several times in the past, most recently for assaulting his wife on Super Bowl Sunday.
Officers are unsure whether Simpson's wife or her lover was the intended target of the attack.
South Haven Police Department Detective Detective Adam DeBoer said: 'She locked herself in the bathroom until he left. It appears to be an ongoing feud over a woman.'
Neighbour Torrey Hunt opened his door at around 3am to find the victim bleeding and begging for assistance.
He said: 'I open the door and see blood everywhere. He was stabbed in his chin and his chest, he had puncture wounds in his chest and his arms and stuff.
'He said someone knocked on the door, he thought he was knocking on the door for somebody, and he started getting stabbed up.
'I am thinking he could die any minute.'
Another resident Krystal Miller said: 'It was pretty scary because there was a lot of blood everywhere.'
Miss Miller claimed Simpson had been at the home numerous times in the past screaming and pounding on the door.

The suspect arrived on his own at South Haven Police Department for questioning at around 2 pm on Tuesday.
