Susan Boyle has seemingly suffered a nervous breakdown of some kind.

The former Britain’s Got Talent contestant and global singing sensation was taken away from London’s Heathrow Airport by ambulance on Monday after “losing it” on airline staffers.

That is how TMZ phrased the incident upon breaking the news.

According to anonymous insiders, police were called to the scene and removed Boyle from the premises (against her will) out of concern for her safety and well-being.

She was then taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

Witnesses told the celebrity gossip website that Boyle was throwing a major tantrum when cops showed up, though no one is certain why.

Boyle's rep confirms that his client was NOT placed on a psychiatric hold, however.

In fact, she has already been released from the medical facility and was able to catch another flight, returning later in the day to her native Scotland.

The spokesperson has blamed the incident on the former reality star’s Asperger’s Syndrome.

Back in 2009, Boyle created a viral stir when she finished in second place on Britain’s Got Talent.

She went on to release multiple albums and appear on various talk shows, but she also experienced a few previous meltdowns.

It can be tough for someone to go a relative nobody to a worldwide phenomenon in a matter of days.

Most recently, Boyle's sixth album, Hope, was released in 2014; and she performed for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

We hope she has a full recovery and avoids instances such as these in the future.
