Boyle got scared after two trespassers were spotted snooping in her garden over the Christmas period. Her security was increased following orders of mentor Simon Cowell. However, she never gave in to constant pressure of moving away from her hometown so she could live in a safer area.
But now, Boyle has backed down to her label's pleas and has agreed to live in London for most of the time, while still keeping her three-bed house, according to The Sun. And her lavish new apartment will be a second home for her beloved cat Pebbles.
"She has now agreed to move to a place in the city, where she'll stay when busy working. During promotion commitments, it is thought she will stay for weeks at a time. The flat will be cat-friendly, so she can take Pebbles too," the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.
