We hope this isn't true!
Susan Boyle's family members are once again speaking out to the press again against the singing sensation's management team, because according to them, she's not allowed to access any of her earnings, and is only provided a weekly allowance of $650!
According to her brother Gerry, SuBo recently purchased a $450,000 home near the house she grew up in so she can keep both, but because of her living stipend, she can't even furnish her new residence, and has to take the bus to get around!
"When Susan realized she can't just walk into a bank and take out her own money she had a fit because she thought she was down to her last few quid. Her millions are ring-fenced but Susan has no concept of money. She was extremely distressed. She lives in fear of losing everything and returning to her old life before she made it big. Susan said to me, 'I've been told I get £500 a week because I'm a novice. I don't have the money to go and buy the furniture.' So she's still stuck in the small council house where we all grew up. She should be able to walk into a bank anywhere and say she wants £50,000 cash. That may not be advisable, but it would be her choice because it's her money.
Susan is baffled about money. All she wants to do is sing. So we asked the questions that should have been asked a while ago. Why doesn't she even have a credit card? Why does she feel she doesn't have control over her finances. And we've got worries about her safety too. She visits the local Tesco most days all on her own. So we raised concerns with her management. Susan doesn't look as if she is a successful international chart star. She's lonely and downtrodden."
However, other sources assert that she spends so little because that's how she prefers to live!
"The modest allowance is what she asked for and she has full control of her money. All she is doing is being responsible with her money."
We don't know…for what she's making, she shouldn't have to take the bus!
We truly hope her management team isn't taking advantage of her!
What do U think?? Is SuBo's success being too controlled??
