BlackBerry’s woes continue after a celebrity party, thrown by the company last night to celebrate BBM, ended in a vicious stabbing that forced police to lock celebrities inside the club and BlackBerry to cancel the event.
The BlackBerry event featured live performances from Jessie J and Wretch 32, and was held at the Bankside Vaults, London. Guests included TOWIE’s Joey Essex and N-Dubz star Fazer.
“Our first concern is the well-being of the individual concerned,” BlackBerry said in a statement. “We are doing all that we can to assist the police with their inquiries.”
According to a report in
The Daily Mail, BlackBerry had left no expense spared, laying on free drinks and canapés. But during a rush for the cloakroom a man in his 30’s was apparently stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle. The injured man is said to be in a critical condition.
The celebrities were locked inside the club and only let out one at a time while officers took their names.
