The story that just won’t kay down, Susan Boyle, is now accused by media of throwing a massive fit after losing the Britian’s Got Talent grand final.
Boyle is now being treated for an “emotional breakdown” and went on a massive backstage rampage after dancers Diversity were named winner. Minutes after the cameras stopped rolling she threw a massive diva tantrum which viewers did not get to see, reports The Daily Star newspaper in the UK.
She exploded with rage after being taken to her dressing room and was heard raging: “I hate this show. I hate it!”
Minutes later she burst out of her dressing room in her bra and went rushing down the corridor hurling four-letter abuse.
She chucked a cup of water over a floor manager who desperately tried to calm her down, as other stunned crew members rushed to restrain her.
Boyle was dragged to a make-up room and kept inside to regain her composure while the show’s producers were alerted.
“She went off the scale. She had been under enormous pressure all week,” a source told The Daily Star.
“Everyone expected her to win and deep down she believed she was going to. Losing just got to her.
“What she has failed to grasp is it doesn’t matter that she didn’t win. She’s going to get an album deal and be a huge star. Being runner-up was not a bad thing.”
Britain’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan said last night that Boyle was “essentially fine”.
“She was very tired and hasn’t been sleeping,” Morgan told UK television.
“She has just gone away to have some time to herself and to sleep and eat, doing all the things she hasn’t been able to do in the last week.”
Her brother Gerry added: “She is a bit tired and maybe even a wee bit homesick. She’s not happier, but she is feeling more rested today.”
