Joss Stone has opened up about how a 2011 plot to kidnap and murder her changed her life and prompted her to move to Nashville.
The horrifying ordeal saw two men found guilty in 2013 beheading the singer, 35, with a samurai sword at her home in Devon.
In a candid new interview, mother-of-two Joss opens up about the horrifying conspiracy, her hopes of one day returning to the county with partner Cody DaLuz, and how she’s doing three months after the traumatic birth of son Shackleton.

In 2011, the singer was the target of a shockingly violent plot by Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, who dubbed her a “devil” and wanted to kill her for her ties to the royal family.
Bradshaw and Liverpool, who were dubbed “cannabis-smoking loafers” in court, were stopped driving a car loaded with guns to the pop star’s Devon home.
Kevin was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum sentence of 10 years and eight months, while his accomplice Junior was sentenced to 18 years, but both men’s sentences were reduced.
“What happened to me in 2011 made me want to lock my doors and have an alarm system, which I didn’t do before,” Joss told the Times.
Family: In a candid new interview, mother-of-two Joss opens up about the horrifying conspiracy and how she hopes to one day return to Devon with partner Cody DaLuz.
“Cody’s so gentle — he’s like, ‘Oh, we don’t need to worry about that,’ and I’m like, ‘Well, you know, sometimes people try to kill you.’ Then he’s like, ‘Oh yeah, that little one thing.” That’s not a positive thought, so it makes you safety conscious.
“Although that’s another blessing, isn’t it? Because I wasn’t before and now I am. But out in Nashville, I know those men aren’t here, so I feel so much safer. Cody worked in security so he’s the best person to be around.”
A year after their conviction, both men’s sentences were reduced after winning an appeal against the length of their sentences.

Junior had his 18-year sentence reduced to ten years by three judges at the Court of Appeal in London, while Kevin, originally given life with a minimum sentence of ten years and eight months, had his minimum sentence reduced to six and a half. Half a year.
Seven years later, Joss is hoping to return to Devon, where she grew up as a teenager, having been born in Kent.
The singer said she wants her two children, Violet, 22 months, and Shackleton to have the same upbringing as her – riding horses, climbing trees and being close to her family.
Recovery: Joss said that at the moment, three months after the birth of her baby boy, she is having to take life “extra lightly”.
Joss said she had to take life “extra lightly” three months after the birth of her baby boy.
The singer wanted a “natural birth” but had to undergo an emergency c-section after she “suffered for 32 hours” and was in “pain.”
Shackleton’s heart rate suddenly dropped dangerously and the hitmaker said doctors only had “about 14 minutes to get the baby out alive” after her uterus ruptured.
Joss said the surgery makes it difficult for her to pick up her daughter or even go for a walk, but she hopes to be able to do so soon.
She added that she cries because of the pain while breastfeeding her son, but is enjoying taking a step back from her normally busy touring schedule to focus on motherhood.
