London (ANI): Susan Boyle"s brother, John, has expressed fear that his famous sister could be killed at the hands of a crazed fan, just like the late Beatles legend John Lennon. The 48-year-old 'Britain"s Got Talent" runner up fears she is being stalked by a teenage male fan after she confronted an intruder who broke into her home when she returned from recording a Haiti charity single.
Since then, her brother, 59, said he was “very upset" about the lack of security surrounding his younger sister. It was the second security incident in recent weeks, after two stranger were caught peering through her back window at Christmas. John said he feared his 48-year-old sister would eventually be killed by a crazed fan, just like Beatles legend John Lennon in 1980.
The former Beatle was shot dead in the street by crazed stalker Mark Chapman, now 54, who is still in jail despite repeated attempts at making parole. "I am very upset about the lack of security. Her management company are too busy counting the money Susan has made them to consider her safety," the Telegraph quoted him as telling The Sun.
"The family have told them several times that vast improvements need to be made to avoid something like this happening. This it the second time something has happened to Susan at her home and it is extremely worrying. Susan is a massive world star and needs better protection. You look at what happened to John Lennon in New York – it's really worrying," he added.
While the singer said she was “terrified" something bad would happen, she vowed that she wouldn"t let it make her change her life. "I'm not going anywhere – nobody's pushing me out of my house," she said. "I''m absolutely fine but it was very concerning for everyone. I think he got more of a scare than I did because he ran off. The matter is in hand. The police have been excellent," she added.
Susan shot to fame after her rendition of 'I Dreamed A Dream" from 'Les Miserables" wowed the audience and judges on 'Britain's Got Talent" last year.
