Alexandra Burke's brother springs to her defence after "steak knife death threat"
Alexandra Burke was apparently embroiled in a terrifying scare after a fellow diner at a restaurant allegedly threatened to kill her.
Burke's mother Melissa Bell told the radio station LBC 97.3 that the family was eating in a restaurant when they saw a threatening message on the X Factor winner's Twitter timeline.
The message was from a person who was in the restaurant at the same time as the family, who apparently said that Burke was "annoying" and that they they wanted to go over and "stab her to death". Bell said:
"We were in the restaurant and looked at Twitter to see my daughter's status and someone had written, 'I'm in a restaurant with Alexandra Burke. She's annoying me and I'm going to go over with my steak knife and stab her to death'."
This episode didn't sit well with Burke's brother however, who took offence to the threat and confronted the person after using their Twitter profile picture to reveal their identity. Bell added:
"My son absolutely lost it. He [the threatener] was very sheepish and said 'I'm so sorry, it was a joke.' But I said, 'How dare you? This is threatening someone's life."
