Susan Boyle Hospitalized for Exhaustion After “Emotional Breakdown”

By: Celebuzz / June 1, 2009

It seems that losing out on this season of Britain’s Got Talent over the weekend was the straw that finally broke Susan Boyle‘s back.

British newspaper the Daily Mail reports that Boyle was admitted to the Priory clinic on Sunday for exhaustion. The Scottish warbler reportedly showed signs of an “emotional breakdown.”

The clinic admittance came after police were summoned to Boyle’s hotel room. “We were called about 6 p.m. on Sunday to a central London hotel to doctors assessing a woman under the Mental Health Act,” a police spokesperson reveals. “Police attended at the request of ambulance personnel and the woman was taken voluntarily to a clinic. No one was arrested and there were no allegations of crime.”

The producers of Britain’s Got Talent have issued a statement reading, “Following Saturday night’s show, Susan is exhausted and emotionally drained. She has been seen by her private GP who supports her decision to take a few days out for rest and recovery…We offer her our ongoing support and wish her a speedy recovery.”

Boyle, who was beat out by dance troupe Diversity on Saturday’s finale, had been showing signs of strain in the past week, including multiple profanity-laced public outbursts, according to reports.
