London, June 29 : Former royal butler Paul Burrell has no plans of returning to Britain, as he fears being the target of a hate mob, it has emerged.
The blabbermouth butler has told relatives people have turned against him over his royal revelations.
And he has even convinced his sons Alexander, 23, and Nicholas, 19, to move to Florida to be near him.
But despite the ex-butler's pleas his wife Maria is staying put in a flat above the family flower shop.
"Paul says he will never return. At the moment he is adamant because he fears attacks. He feels Britain is no longer his home. Paul's not even happy about visiting the family as he thinks they will be targeted because of him," the Daily Star quoted a source, as saying.
"He wants them all to stay with him. The lads agree but Maria wants to keep the family florist's open. He's begged her in recent weeks but she still says no. Instead she will make regular visits to the US," the source added.
