Susan Boyle has contacted police after allegedly receiving a number of “threatening” phone calls at her home over the weekend.
The Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) contestant, 54, told the Scottish Sun she was too scared to sleep after being called ten times at her property in Blackburn, West Lothian, over the weekend.
She said a man swore at her during the calls and told her: “I know where you live”.
Boyle told the paper: “I am very vulnerable as I live on my own and they have made me very upset.
“The police were very reassuring and saying all the right things. But, deep down, I am really worried.”
Boyle was propelled to fame by her performance of 'I Dreamed a Dream' from the musical Les Misérables on BGT in 2009. She went on to release six albums selling millions of copies after coming second in the contest.
A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: "We received a report of nuisance phone calls received at an address in Blackburn on Saturday, June 20. Inquiries are ongoing."
