Just read this - poor Joss. Well done to her neighbours for spotting the vehicle.

Makes you wonder if they were just 2 opportunists or whether there's anyone behind it.

Doesn't bear thinking about what they could have done

It reminds me of the story a few years ago where (I think) Kosovan gangsters came very close to kidnapping Julian Clary. They planned to beat him to death with a snooker cue or something.

Conspiracy to kidnap, rob and murder her according to Sky News now, found swords, rope and a body bag in their car. Seems like it could have been a extortion attempt.
Yes but it doesn't say who the conspiracy to kill and rob was against in the official line. Personally I think down the line it will come out that it wasn't targeting Joss, it just happened to be near her house and the press have put 2 and 2 together to make a story.

They went with a body bag so they were obviously intending to kill someone not extort money and I suspect that it may well have been gang members about to carry out a revenge killing on another gangster and nothing to do with Joss at all.

This will bring Joss right back into the public eye in the UK, as we had almost all forgot about her since she thankfully decided to bugger off to America. So, she gets saved from murder and will now undoubtedly be everywhere for the next while talking about her "ordeal" etc. to rekindle her status over here again. Yawn.

I agree that this could be seriously milked... though even if it is, no-one deserves something like this and if true, it truly is awful.

..(I'm not suggesting you think she deserves this, by the way)..

Didn't they have pictures of her house though?

Scary indeed. Joss is the 5th richest musician under 30 - maybe they had planned an extortion attempt. The frustration with these kinds of stories is that we'll probably never know.
Perhaps the Sunday Times will think twice about cobbling together another "Rich List".

They had plans of her house and aerial shots as well so it seems pretty likely that they were targeting her.

What a bizarre story.

The bit about a 'body bag' made my blood run cold, to be honest. Horrible idea.

She will probably have to go about with a security team now, if she doesn't already.

A European tour is due soon.

Why do I hate myself for thinking this is contrived.

But, if it is true, she can thank Price, Katona and all the other media whores for making the world a cynical place.

I don't think it's contrived at all.

Joss is this bohemian chick who smokes weed and has a really laid back attitude & is someone who doesn't go whoring herself out constantly for publicity. She generally just records her music and gets on with it.

Doesn't she have a drug addict half-brother? Maybe he annoyed the wrong people.

I'm not sure how you think she would have contrived this. The two men would have to have been hired to carry out this stunt with the expectation of being caught. Their only recourse then would be to reveal that it was a stunt, which would not necessarily be believed unless Joss admitted being behind it, thus incurring extremely bad publicity for herself and possibly risking being charged with wasting police time. Alternatively, the two man could keep mum; either way, they'd be at risk of serious jail time. It makes no sense at all.

It must be very unsettling for Joss, even though she seems to be making light of it.

DS NEWS

Notes have reportedly been found in a car near Joss Stone's home allegedly outlining plans to "rob and kill" the singer and to "find a river to dump her in".

Two men have been charged with conspiracy to rob and cause grievous bodily harm after being arrested near Stone's Ashill home on Monday.

Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, from Manchester, spoke only to confirm their identities at Exeter magistrates court yesterday.

The two have been remanded to appear at Exeter Crown Court on July 1.

Detectives investigating the case reportedly found a handwritten note in a car near Stone's home using the words "rob and kill", "money in the safe", and "Jocelyn rob", the Daily Mail reports. Another is said to have featured the phrase "find a river to dump her in".

It was reported earlier this week that officers had found a Samurai sword, rope and a body bag in the car near Stone's home.

Stone has said that she is "fine" despite the incident, adding: "I'm carrying on. I paint my bathroom. I bake my cakes. All is well."
