A man who was stabbed at a Jessie J gig last week (March 4) has died, police have confirmed.

Father-of-two Phillip Sherriff, aged 37, was fatally wounded after he was attacked with a bottle during the 'Do It Like A Dude' singer's show at the Pulse nightclub in Southwark, London.

The show was sponsored by mobile phone company BlackBerry in an attempt to boost their consumer division, and was also attended by rappers Wretch 32 and Chipmunk, cast members of reality shows The Only Way Is Essex and Made In Chelsea, and competition winners.

According to the Metro, Ashley Charles, aged 25, has now been charged over the attack. He appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court yesterday, after being accused of attempted murder, and had his application for bail denied. He will now attend Inner London Crown Court later this month (April 20).

Reports claim that Sherriff was taken to Royal London Hospital after the incident, where medics operated on his skull to remove pressure from an injury to his brain, but their attempts were unsuccessful. A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: "A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course."

Jessie J released her debut album 'Who You Are' in February last year, and is thought to be working on the follow-up this year. She is also currently starring as a mentor in the BBC's new reality singing show The Voice.
