    BB King is currently in a Las Vegas hospital after suffering a minor heart attack on Thursday.

    According to TMZ, King’s daughter Patty allegedly called police after King’s longtime manager Laverne Toney refused to take him to the hospital. After paramedics arrived, it was determined that the 89-year-old blues great was in need of urgent care.

    Patty recently filed a police report against Toney — who has power of attorney over her father — accusing him of elderly abuse and burglary. Patty contends that Toney has stolen upwards of $30 million and withheld medication from King whilst he was on tour.

    Police investigated the allegations and chose not to file charges. However, Patty said she’s now in the process of trying to strip Toney of his power of attorney.
