(TMZ) – Blues legend B.B. King’s daughter believes he is being abused… and called police Thursday to settle a dispute over whether he needed to be hospitalized.
TMZ has learned there’s a huge battle over B.B.’s care — between his daughter Patty King and his longtime manager Laverne Toney. Patty, who lives with her father in Las Vegas … tells us she wanted to take him to the hospital because his urine was orange and he wasn’t eating.
She claims Toney — who has power of attorney over B.B. — refused, so Patty called police. Responding officers called in paramedics, who agreed B.B. needed to be checked out by doctors.
89-year-old King was treated at the hospital — and Patty says he suffered a minor heart attack. She also says this photo was taken during his brief stay, and she hopes the image will convince authorities something needs to be done to protect him.
