LONDON — Singing sensation Susan Boyle said she felt fine after she found a youth intruding into her home in Scotland, British media reported today.
Boyle, who shot to international stardom on the back of her appearance on a TV talent show last spring, saw a youth run out from her home in the small Scottish village of Blackburn as she returned Tuesday night from recording a charity single for Haiti, The Sun tabloid said.
The singer appeared calm today, smiling and giving the thumbs-up to well-wishers outside her house.
“I’m fine. It’s in the hands of the police now,” she told Britain’s Press Association.
Local police said they were called Tuesday night to Blackburn “following reports of a disturbance.” They said an unidentified 16-year-old boy was detained and but has since been released.
Boyle, 48, became an international sensation after a clip of her singing “I Dreamed a Dream” on “Britain’s Got Talent” spread online and received more than 120 million views on YouTube. She released one of the year’s top-selling albums in November.
