Joss Stone has assured fans "all is well" after it transpired she was the intended victim of a murder plot this week. Two men from Manchester appeared in court today (16th June 2011) after being arrested close to Stone's home carrying plans of the property, swords, rope and a body bag.
The British- soul-singer, who is currently promoting new album 'Lp1', told Spinner Magazine "I'm fine, hon, don't worry", adding, "I'm all good. People are crazy, but that's OK. Hey, I'm carrying on: I paint my bathroom. I bake my cakes. All is well". 33-year-old Kevin Liverpool and 30-year-old Junior Bradshaw were arrested near the singer's Devon home after neighbours reported their suspicious vehicle. It is still not clear whether Stone was in the property at the time of the arrest. Police officers stood guard outside the singer's house, situated in a rural farming area, for several hours on Monday.
Joss Stone rose to fame with her 2003 hits 'Super Duper Love' and 'Fell In Love With A Boy'. Her new album was recorded in six days in Nashville with Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart. The record is due to hit shelves on 26th July 2011.
