English soul sensation Joss Stone is still in love with her ex-boyfriend BEAU DOZIER, despite their high-profile split earlier this month (NOV05).

The 18-year-old singer began dating 25-year-old producer Dozier - son of Motown music-maker LAMONT DOZIER - in 2004.

Despite their recent split, Stone admits she will always have a special place in her heart for Dozier.

She explains, "You don't just stop loving someone because you stop going out with them.

"Beau was the first and greatest love of my life. We split because we realised the relationship has become a friendship. There was no drama, no screaming. It's important to move on."
