Shortly after Jessie J left the stage at an event hosted by Blackberry at Pulse nightclub in London, Phillip Sherriff was fatally stabbed with a broken bottle by fellow attendee Ashley Charles. Sheriff, whose death was announced on Sunday, was the father of two children. Since the incident Charles has been taken into custody for murder.
Jessie J took to Twitter after the announcement to express her thoughts on the tragedy stating, “I am lost for words. All I can say is my thoughts, love and respects are with the family and children of the man who attended the blackberry gig last week who sadly lost his life this morning <3 So sad..."
This event serves as a reminder to be aware of personal safety at concerts. In related news, Young Jeezy's Montreal show was cancelled this past weekend after two back-to-back shootings at his London and Toronto, Ontario performances.
