Soul sensation Joss Stone is outraged by false reports her brother DANIEL is on the run from the British police.

The YOU HAD ME singer insists her comments were misinterpreted and her brother should not be chastised for mistakes he made as an impressionable youth.

The 19-year-old says, "They made it sound like he's on the run and he's not at all. He was a kid when he got into trouble.

"He's not a bad person. He's the most beautiful man. He's so sweet, but they made him seem like an ogre.

"I knew when I became a singer that I might lose my private life. But my family didn't.

"They're just living a normal life, so for somebody to attack them kind of disappoints me about the human race."
