British pop star Joss Stone has lost the millions she racked up after shooting to fame.
The singer, real name Jocelyn Stoker, was recently ranked 27th on a list of Britain's Young Rich stars but she insists her bank balance is nowhere near the estimated $16 million (£10 million) she is said to be worth.
She says, "I don't have that kind of money."
Stone claims she handed over the bulk of her earnings to bosses at record company Emi to get out of her contract in 2009.
She adds, "It all went when I left Emi. I was flat even, down to nothing. I wasn't even down to a million in the bank.
"What I had left was my house and three flats in Exeter and that was it. Money is the thing that people hold over you but to me it was just cotton balls. Don't let it suffocate you. Don't let yourself need it that much. I just thought, 'I'm free. I'll go out and play some gigs and earn my living.'"
