Susan Boyle Given Clean Bill of Mental Health
Today 6:40 AM PDT by Gina Serpe
Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle has checked out of London's Priory clinic, where she spent five days being treated for exhaustion and an anxiety attack in the wake of the reality-show loss heard round the world.
The 48-year-old belter has since moved in to her brother's central London pad.
"She's much happier," Gerry Boyle told Britain's GMTV morning show of his superstar sister. "She seems a lot more like herself."
He added that her second-place finish "wasn't the end" of her already stratospheric career—as if there was any doubt.
"Things are becoming clearer for her now. She's now beginning to believe that, 'Yes, indeed, I will be a singer.' "
Whether she'll be a singer associated with Britain's Got Talent, however, is still in the air.
Producers have yet to confirm if Boyle is up for joining the show's finalists in the traditional postshow national tour. The performers are set to begin rehearsals in London on Tuesday.
"At this stage we're not saying anything," a spokeswoman for Boyle told the BBC. "Susan is still recovering and we ask to respect her privacy."
The Britain's Got Talent tour kicks off in Birmingham June 12.
