British soul sensation Joss Stone is smitten with R+B hunk Mario after falling for his "cocky personality" at a Brit Awards after-party.

Despite currently dating Los Angeles-based music producer BEAU DOZIER, the 17-year-old YOU HAD ME star - who picked up two prizes at the Brits last Wednesday (09FEB05) - rushed to top London club Cirque after the ceremony to meet with the US chart star.

A source says, "She's a big fan of his and loves his music.

"And when she met him in the VIP area, she was smitten - she found his cocky personality very sexy."
