    Two men were arrested near Stone's countryside home in England last month and accused of planning to attack and rob her.

    The "You Had Me" hitmaker, who is one of the richest singers under the age of 30 in the U.K., believes reports of her estimated $14.4 million fortune are "dangerous" and may be to blame for the harrowing incident.

    Stone tells Britain's You magazine, "The idea that you have all this money just gives people another reason to hate you."

    But the defiant 24-year-old remains unfazed by the drama and refuses to leave her home in Cullompton, a town near Devon, England over fears for her safety.
