Boyle blames money, fame for crack in family

London, Jan 5 (IANS) Scottish singer Susan Boyle, who rose to fame with “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2009, has blamed her money and popularity for her family being torn apart.

The 52-year-old’s once close-knit family has split into two factions in bitter disputes centred on her fame and millions, and she feels helpless, reports
Her brother Gerry said she broke down in tears and told him: “All I ever wanted was for the family to be close. What can I do to put it right? It’s all my fault. Tell me, what can I do?”
The feud started shortly after Boyle got recognition in 2009 for participating in “Britain’s Got Talent”.
Two factions emerged. One was made up of Gerry, eldest sister Mary and brother John. The other is middle sister Bridie, nephew Alan and nieces Joanne, Jaqueline and Kirsty.
