‘She sent me a 50-page document detailing how I followed her, and that was a little intimidating.
‘I have to point out that I wasn’t on the subway in 1984, that’s when she claimed that she saw me … I was ten years old and my first visit to the United States was on 2002. That was all a bit strange. ”
In his hit single, which sold more than 4 million copies after its release in 2005, James sings about the discovery of an ‘angel’ who ‘smiled at him on the subway’ in the first sentence.
James told the publisher that since he was able to prove the woman, unknown by name, was not the one in his attack, no further legal action was needed.

However, James, who is releasing his book How To Be A Complete And Utter Blunt on Thursday, also revealed that he has had a couple of his own stalkers in his successful music career.
He explained that he doesn’t talk about them often because they sometimes give him some ‘great gifts’.
To give an example, the father of two details a box that looks like an ‘airline pilot’s flying container’ that a fan gave him.
He says the inside is covered with items attached to his life, such as the books he had to read before about the albums he listened to for years.
