British chanteuse Joss Stone apparently escaped a bizarre death plot involving two men who planned to kidnap and then behead her, and the court case began Monday, the Sun reports.

Authorities think it’s the singer’s link to the Royal Family that set off the pair; she was a guest at Will and Kate’s nuptials and frequently appears at royal charity gigs. Documents obtained by law enforcement contained anti-Queen Elizabeth II rants and referred to Stone as a “she-devil in the flesh.”

The men were apprehended near her house with hammers, a knife and a samurai sword.
