'Glee' Star's Father Murdered

'Glee' guest star Charice Pempengco's estranged father was murdered in the Philippines.

Charice pulled out of a concert in Singapore to return to the Philippines to be with her family.

"I am not going to be there to be part of David Foster and Friends concert," she tweeted. "I have to go back to the Philippines as soon as possible to be with my family."

According to the Associated Press, Charice's father, 40-year-old construction worker Ricky Pempengco, was in a small grocery store late Monday night. Laguna province's police chief, Senior Supt. Gilbert Cruz, said Pempengco brushed against a drunk man who became angry and stabbed him with an ice pick in the chest and back.
