The story has hit headlines across the world, and Rimes has now spoken out about the alleged plot against Stone, revealing she has previously found herself the target of criminal activity.

In a series of posts on Twitter, she writes, "I have experienced this first hand, twice when I was younger. The 'plotting' issue Joss is going through. It's scary... It's terrifying. I'm (so) happy my sweet friend is OK."
