*The daughter of blues legend B.B. King called police on Thursday in an attempt to get her father to a hospital, according to TMZ.
Patty King says her dad’s longtime manager Laverne Toney, who has power of attorney over B.B., refused her request to take him to a hospital when she saw that his urine was orange and he wasn’t eating, the website reported.
Out of desperation, Patty called police, and responding officers called in paramedics, who agreed B.B. needed to be checked out by doctors. At the hospital, the 89-year-old musician suffered a minor heart attack, Patty said.
She also said the above photo was taken during his brief stay, and she hopes the image will convince authorities something needs to be done to protect him.
Patty and her husband filed a police report last November … claiming elder abuse, and burglary. They accused Toney and her assistant of fleecing $20-$30 million from B.B., withholding his medications while on tour — and jacking several Rolexes and a ring valued at $250k.
Police investigated and no charges were filed. Patty says she’s meeting with her attorney to discuss wrestling power of attorney away from Toney.
