Susan Boyle had to be removed from Heathrow Airport in London after freaking out in front of airline staffers. According to TMZ, Boyle was in the British Airways lounge on Monday, when cops were called due to a “distressed woman.” That distressed woman turned out to be none other than Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle.
According to sources who spoke to TMZ, Boyle was having a huge tantrum when authorities arrived to the lounge. After that, Susan Boyle was taken to the hospital for an evaluation on her health. There’s conflicting reports on whether or not Boyle voluntarily was taken to the hospital or if it was against her will.

Boyle has been in the news over the years for many different stories circling her behavior. One of those stories was the report of her Aspergers diagnosis. Back in 2013, The Inquisitr reported that Boyle was recently diagnosed after being in the dark about her condition for decades. It’s said that during her birth, she suffered oxygen deprivation, which she feels resulted in learning disabilities. According to the singer, she said she struggled all through school with depression and learning how to communicate.
At the time, Boyle said she’s not letting her diagnosis change her life. “Asperger’s doesn’t define me. It’s a condition that I have to live with and work through, but I feel more relaxed about myself. People will have a greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do.”
As for her meltdown, her rep said that it happened due to her Asperger’s. Despite some reports, her reps insist that she was never on a psychiatric hold after the airline incident.

During the argument, Boyle was heard yelling, “I’ve done nothing wrong!” A witness said of the scene, “It was something small that spiralled (sic) out of control.”
In a separate incident, Susan Boyle yelled “help me” at a Northern Ireland airport earlier in the month. Additionally, back in 2010, she took a mop from Heathrow Airport for an impromptu song and dance. Hopefully, this most recent incident is the last.
The last time we heard from Boyle, she was being questioned by the police due to a family dispute over money. The Inquisitr reported in May of 2015 that Boyle was arguing on the doorstep of one of her relatives because of a long term feud over money. When Boyle allegedly sent abusive texts to said family member, the police were called to intervene in the situation. According to a source, the two weren’t fighting about a small amount either. In fact, it’s said that Boyle was fighting over a huge five-figure number.
“Susan had gifted her relative a five figure sum and was saddened she hadn’t heard from her in a while. So she went to her house, but was thrown out.”
The source continued, “Then she was texting and calling as she was baffled why she hadn’t heard from her. The police visited Susan at her house to ask her to stop texting. They were sympathetic and nice to her, reminding her that she has got some lovely people in her life.”
Another source eventually came forward and said that Boyle’s Asperger’s makes it hard for the singer to deal with situations with heightened emotions. “Susan’s fragile mental health is no secret. It’s well documented she has Asperger’s. One of the aspects of this is she is unable to deal with emotional situations as it causes upset and anxiety.”
