Police have arrested two men in connection with a plot to rob and murder British soul singer Joss Stone. BBC confirms the men, ages 30 and 33, were arrested after police received a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area near the singers home in Cullompton, England. The two were found with swords, maps of the singers home, ropes. forensic-style overalls and a body bag in their possession.
Police attended an address in Cullompton after alert residents notified officers about a suspicious-looking vehicle. Officers attended the area at around 1000 BST and subsequently arrested the occupants of a red Fiat Punto. Major crime detectives are continuing to investigate, police said
The 24-year old Stone has sold more than 10 million records worldwide. She was recently named one of Britains wealthiest entertainers under 30 by the Sunday Times, with an estimated net worth of $15 million.
The singer released a statement regarding the incident saying she was ok.
Id like to thank everyone for their concern but Im absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their enquiries, she said.
Yes - the party colored hair made me expect Brittany Spears or Lady Gaga. Instead I was pleasantly surprised.
Great! Thanks for the link!
Just listened to her rendition of Dusty Springfields ‘Son of A Preacher Man’. She prances in barefoot with a babydoll dress that seems to distract the cameraman (or was it just the way my computer was buffering the vid?). The vocals are quite impressive - she makes it sound very very easy for her to blast those pipes.
