Absolutely terrifying. Solange Knowles' business partner Armina Mussa was stabbed 10 times earlier this week in New Orleans, Knowles' rep confirms to Us Weekly. In L.A. at the time, the singer immediately flew back home upon hearing the news and has been with Mussa and her family since.

Police arrested and charged suspect Arronesia Christophe with attempted second-degree murder following the incident on Wednesday, April 8. Christophe claimed that she was attacked first by Mussa and was acting in self-defense. She grabbed a small folding knife when Mussa, 24, began to allegedly yell at her.
