When Susan Boyle took the stage and announced that she was trying to be a professional singer in front of Britain’s Got Talent audience in 2009, jeers and laughter filled the air. But, the first note of her cover of “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Miserables left the audience in stitches. The difficult to impress Simon Cowell was left stunned. By the time she was done singing, it had become clear that Susan Boyle was well on her way to stardom at the age of 47! There is a lesson there. But where is Susan Boyle now? This is a question that many fans want to know.
Boyle, the daughter of a miner and a typist, took a while before becoming a global star, but the wait was worth it. That same year she made a rendition of I Dreamed a Dream, she became a multimillionaire. It is interesting how someone the world didn’t give a chance can make it with just their talent. But, for a while now, we haven’t heard from the singer. So where is Susan Boyle now? Below are some reasons why Susan might have gone underground.
Susan Boyle Lost Her Father, Sister, And Mother
Even after becoming a global sensation, Boyle had to face life independently. Losing her sister to cancer, her father, and her mother had its toll on her. Her father passed away in 1999. A year later, she lost her sister Kathleen in 2000, People reports. Then, before her sojourn to Britain’s Got Talent, she lost her mother in 2007. According to her, this is the most painful of all the deaths to her family. So, Boyle had to cope with being alone. When she made her debut, she was about to lose the family house, coupled with the fact that she was jobless. But somehow, she had faith and applied for the talent show, and as they say, the rest is history.
Susan Boyle Has Asperger’s Syndrome
Growing up, Susan was called “Simple Susie” because, according to people around her at the time, she had a brain injury. However, it wasn’t until she got a diagnosis that she found out that she was only suffering from Asperger’s syndrome. Asperger’s syndrome doesn’t imply that her brain has been damaged as opposed to brain damage. After tests, Boyle is hopeful that people who have the same issue wouldn’t be seen as liabilities. Could this be the reason that Boyle stopped appearing on stage? Where is Susan Boyle now?
She Lost Her Elder Sister To Cancer
Yet again, Boyle had another loss. Her older sister, Birdie, passed away after losing the battle with cancer at 73. Even though we may say that Birdie is quite old, for Susan Boyle, she was the only family she had.

Finally, love would find her in 2014 when she fell in love with an American doctor. But, unfortunately, the relationship didn’t work out for both of them, The Daily Mail reports.
