Is some odd and terrible news, Lionel Richie's bassist Ethan Farmer stabbed himself repeatedly last week... after eating edibles.

According to TMZ, police received a 911 call at around 10 p.m. on Tuesday (May 30) that someone had been stabbed. Paramedics were dispatched and when they arrived, Farmer was found bleeding at a San Fernando Valley apartment.

Apparently, the 42-year-old and some friends were eating some sort of marijuana edibles -- the report says pot brownies or cookies -- when he suddenly turned violent.

Farmer stabbed himself multiple times and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he had remained as of Friday night.

His condition is currently unknown.

On Sunday (June 4), he posted on his Instagram that he was headed to church.
