Family tragedy has again befallen actress and singer Jennifer Hudson, whose half-brother was arrested Tuesday following an incident Monday night, police in Michigan confirm to PEOPLE.

Stephen Angelo Simpson, 45, is currently in the Van Buren County jail awaiting arraignment, South Haven police tell PEOPLE. Local CBS affiliate WWMT/Newschannel 3 reports that he was arrested for repeatedly stabbing the boyfriend of his estranged wife.

“I open the door and see blood everywhere,” neighbor Torrey Hunt, who aided the victim, told the station. “He was stabbed in his chin and his chest, he had puncture wounds in his chest and his arms and stuff.”

The victim was treated and released at the hospital after receiving 20 to 30 stitches, and is expected to recover, according to WWMT.

Police and WWMT also report that Simpson had a history of domestic violence. He was currently on probation, following a Super Bowl Sunday assault of his wife.

In October 2008, Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were fatally shot by William Balfour, the former husband of her sister Julia.

Balfour, described by a Chicago judge as having “the heart of an arctic night,” was sentenced in 2012 to three life sentences without parole.

Reps for the singer did not immediately respond for comment.

Cowabunga, Dude! Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga wanted to give their son, David, a birthday to remember. So they gave him a party that would make any other 5-year-old boy turn green with envy.

First up on August 10: a visit to the Nickelodeon Suites Resort where they mingled with Spongebob Squarepants, Squidward and other Nickelodeon characters. “Not sure who was more starstruck, him or Mommy & Daddy” Otunga posted on Instagram.

The family then posed a meet and greet with all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It had been a special weekend at the Nick Hotel; they had broken the Guinness World Record by having 1,394 people dressed like the Ninja Turtles simultaneously. “Obviously, Little David was in heaven,” says a source. “But you could tell that Jennifer and David were having a fantastic time.”

And then, the crowning achievement: a Ninja Turtle Cake.

Hudson’s team had been unimpressed with another baker’s version of the Ninja Turtles, so they turned to Anna Cakes, the bakery who also made Chris Kirkpatrick’s wedding cake. After a frantic brainstorming session, “I sent over some sketches,” Anna Hightower, owner of Anna Cakes, tells PEOPLE, “and we delivered the cake the next day.” Hudson was delighted with the cake, and posed for pictures with it.

The Oscar winner and her family topped off the night by playing “Family Double Dare” — and yes, they got slimed. “Everyone was laughing,” says an onlooker. “Jennifer was so excited to be slimed; she couldn’t stop laughing after it happened. I don’t know who had more fun during the birthday: Little David or his parents!”

Jennifer Hudson: Super Skinny 2014 CFDA Awards!

Jennifer Hudson: Super Skinny 2014 CFDA Awards!

JENNIFER Hudson is disappearing before our eyes!

The formerly rotund singer and actress looked skinnier than ever as she stepped out for the 2014 CFDA Awards in New York City on Monday.

Recent reports claimed Hudson quit Weight Watchers because of Jessica Simpson, it has been claimed.

The American Idol alum parted ways with the weight loss firm as Simpson takes over as star of the diet programs TV commercials.

“Jennifer felt that she was the perfect role model for Weight Watchers,” said an insider.

“She lost an enormous amount of weight slowly and steadily, and maintained her figure.

“Meanwhile, Jessica’s weight yo-yoed and she also took time-outs for her two pregnancies.”

Jennifer wonders whether Jessica used the pregnancies as a way of buying time to lose weight and gain sympathy for herself, and Jennifer thinks Jessica may be too eager to jump into the spotlight.

“Jennifer isn’t the type of person to post revealing shots of her body, play the sexpot card or use her personal life to bolster her career,” noted the source.

“When Jessica signed on with Weight Watchers, Jennifer was her biggest cheerleader.

“But Jennifer came to think that Jessica didn’t take the program as seriously as she did.”

The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson has been in the spotlight with her dramatic weight loss, and one person who can commiserate is Jennifer Hudson.

“The key about losing weight: You have to do it for you,” Hudson told PEOPLE on the red carpet before the taping of the 2014 BET Honors – airing Feb. 24 at 9 p.m. EST on BET – in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. “It’s not about even starting the journey, it’s about you. You have to want to do it. And you can’t let what everyone has to say overshadow what you want for you.”

As for Hudson – who paid tribute to Aretha Franklin, who was honored for her contributions to the musical arts – she’s staying svelte by “tracking my points – sticking with the plan with Weight Watchers. That’s what I try to do and take it with me everywhere I go.”

While she demurred when asked how the wedding planning was coming, she happily shared that she’s still getting used to her new cropped ‘do. So does it amp up her sexy factor? “I’m still finding my niche with it and having fun with it,” replied Hudson. “I’m like, ‘I like this short thing.’ I’m just embracing it.”
