Boyle Neighbours complain to council over her singing
According to The Sun, Susan Boyle’s neighbours in the West Lothian town of Blackburn have filed a noise complaint with the local council alleging that they can’t watch TV and are kept awake at night because of the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ star singing along to her own CDs.
The tab quotes neighbour Teresa Miller as saying: “It is so loud you can’t hear the telly. It’s unbearable. It’ll be on first thing in the morning or late at night and it’s absolutely blaring. She’ll put one song on repeat and it goes on for hours. I don’t know if she’s got a karaoke machine or what but it’s so loud”.
Boyle actually used some of her new found fortune to buy a new bigger house elsewhere in the Scottish town, but has reportedly since moved back in to her original home, and that is when the loud singing became a problem.
The local council refused to comment on the alleged complaint, and a spokesman for Boyle said they had heard nothing from the local authority, though a source told the paper that the singer has had rows with her neighbours in the past, and that the ‘BGT’ star has called the police on several occasions fearing the arguments might get violent.
