    British singer Joss Stone is convinced she was targeted in a foiled robbery plot because of her millions. Well, Joss, that is definitely a motive for wanting to rob someone famous and fabulous such as yourself.

    Two men were arrested near Stone's countryside home in England last month and were accused of planning to attack and rob her. They had detailed maps and plans, too. It was no joke.

    Stone is one of the richest singers under the age of 30 in the UK and the soul singer believes reports of her estimated $14.4 million fortune are "dangerous" and may be to blame for the harrowing incident. Stone told Britain's You magazine, "The idea that you have all this money just gives people another reason to hate you." It is sad, especially since Stone has earned her money the honest way and by sharing her talent with others!

    However, Stone, 24, is not letting this foiled attempt stop her in her tracks! She is even refusing to relocate or to leave her home in Cullompton, Devon due to fear. In fact, she feels quite the opposite, saying that the authorities response to the incident has "highlighted to me how brilliant the community down here is. Everyone around is like extended family, all of us looking out for each other. I could never live anywhere else."

    What a class act Joss Stone is! She <3s her neighbors.

    Who is your favorite British soul singer?
