Distraught Susan Boyle shifted to ’safe house’May 30th, 2009 - 12:37 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 30 (ANI): Susan Boyle has reportedly been shifted to a safe house as she prepares to perform in the Britain’s Got Talent finals.
Judge Piers Morgan revealed the Scottish church singer, 48, had thought of packing her bags and quitting the talent show following excessive media criticism.
Morgan said the singing sensation had become “distraught” and was presently spending time with one of her closest friends to beat the pressure.
“She had a rocky moment a couple of days ago when she woke up and saw some very negative headlines and suddenly felt the pressure of world attention,” The BBC quoted Morgan as saying on Radio 5 Live’s Victoria Derbyshire show.
“You have to remember this is someone who has gone from complete anonymity to global stardom in the space of six weeks.
“It’s understandable. People should give her a bit of slack. She’s 24 hours from the biggest day of her life and she’s starting to feel the heat,” he added.
Morgan also revealed that Susan, who shot to overnight stardom with her jaw-dropping performance of the Les Miserables song ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ on the show, had been struggling to cope with the pressure.
He added: “She is very distraught, to the extent where she packed her bags and was going to leave the show. She just didn’t see the point of continuing if every time she picked up the newspapers there was another avalanche of abuse.” (ANI)
