BlackBerry BBM event - with Jessie J
Jessie J performs at BlackBerry's BBM event, a celebration of the smartphone's free instant messaging app, held at the Bankside Vaults in London.
Well it all started so brightly with a celeb-tastic turnout at the Pulse nightclub at Bankside Vaults, underneath Blackfriars Bridge. But after fine performances from Wretch 32 and Jessie J, a man was stabbed violently in the neck with a broken bottle while waiting in the queue for the cloakroom.
Apparently, the stars of TOWIE were locked in the toilets during the horrific events, while others reported seeing nightclub bouncers covered in blood in the toilets. Inevitably some party goers took to Twitter as the drama unfolded.
Big Brother star Bobby Sabel tweeted: ‘”Incident” at the Jessie j / blackberry party. We’re all stuck in here! I just want to get in my cab!’
He added later: ‘Carnage! Literally the whole crowd is stampeding against the police!’
It’s the sort of publicity that the troubled BlackBerry brand could do without, especially after its BBM Messenger service was cited as playing a role in helping looters communicate their tactics during last year’s London riots.
Shiny Style was at last night’s event for BlackBerry and can verify that it was a very boozy affair with many teenagers at the event, many of them taking full advantage of the free bar like they’d never had a free drink before (maybe they hadn’t).
By 11.45pm it was certainly mayhem on the dance floor as people were literally falling over from too much booze.
Thankully we left minutes before the horrific incident which has left a man in hospital fighting for his life.
After the event Jessie J tweeted: “My thoughts are with the person who was seriously injured last night at the Blackberry Bbm party. So sad. I really hope they are ok.”
