Former The Wanted singers Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness have told fans to ''not worry'' after news the two stars were threatened at knifepoint following a trip to the cinema.

The Wanted have told fans to ''not worry'' after they were threatened with a knife in Denver.

Singers Siva Kaneswaran, 25, and Jay McGuiness, 23, were threatened by a man as they left a cinema in the US, but the former boy band stars have taken to Twitter to assure fans they are fine after the scary incident.

Jay tweeted: ''To reassure you, we were NOT stabbed, but a guy in Denver did pull a knife out on us- do not worry, we were lucky & we still love Denver.''

Siva and Jay were outside the cinema on Wednesday night (23.04.14) when a homeless man reportedly asked them for money, then threatened them with a knife after insisting Siva hadn't offered him enough.

An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''When they left the threatre they passed by a homeless man who asked for money.

''Siva gave him a few dollars, but the man asked for more and then pulled a knife on them.

''The man swung at Jay and Siva with the knife in his hand - but thankfully the two managed to get away unharmed.''

According to a previous report by TMZ, the stars decided not to call the police.

The group - which also includes members Max George Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes - called time on their four-year pop career in January, releasing a statement on their website revealing they will temporarily split to ''pursue personal endeavours'' following their 'Word Of Mouth' shows.
