Susan Boyle Suing Brothers in Privacy Lawsuit

May 10, 2010 (4:18 am) GMT
The singer did not like her brothers John and Gerry talking to newspapers about her being controlled by her management company.

Singing sensation is suing two of her brothers for giving an interview expressing concerns for her wellbeing, according to a U.K. report. The star, who shot to fame in reality show "" last year, checked into rehab to receive treatment for exhaustion shortly after the series ended.

She hit headlines again when she was snapped sobbing and sucking her thumb following a promotional event in New York in November and raised fears for her health after she collapsed at a London airport in February. In April, she scrapped a planned May promotional visit to Australia due to fatigue.

Two of her brothers, John and Gerry, have spoken out in the press to express concern for their sister, with Gerry even claiming that staff at her management company are "controlling" her and keeping "her family away". But Boyle is fuming that her brothers are talking to the media and has launched a breach of privacy lawsuit against them over the interviews, according to Britain's Sunday Express newspaper.
