Susan Boyle Reveals Asperger's Syndrome Diagnosis

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Susan Boyle, the sensational singer who rose to fame in 2009 on Britain's Got Talent, has admitted in a new interview that she has Asperger's Syndrome.

Speaking to The Observer, Boyle - who suffered from learning disabilities as a child due to oxygen deprivation at birth - said she was diagnosed last year by a specialist.

"I have always known that I have had an unfair label put upon me," Boyle told the publication. "Now I have a clearer understanding of what's wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself."

The 52-year old struggled with the pressure of fame soon after striking it big.

In May of 2009, police actually intervened when she lost it on a couple of fans outside a hotel in London.

But she has managed to sell over 14 million albums in just a few years and recently released her fourth studio album, "Home for Christmas," in time for the holidays.

She told the British newspaper that is grateful to now have a better understanding of her social difficulties.

"I would say I have relationship difficulties, communicative difficulties, which lead to a lot of frustration. If people were a bit more patient, that would help," Boyle said, adding:

"Asperger's doesn't define me. It's a condition that I have to live with and work through, but I feel more relaxed about myself. People will have a much greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do."

Susan is "not" ugly. You don't appear to see beyond your
perceptions - you are not "perfect"; no one is. You should not be tossing stones at her.
