Boyle's Brother Fears She Will Die Like Lennon

SUSAN BOYLE's brother has called for the Scottish singer's security to be boosted following a series of prank calls because he fears she could be murdered in the same way as JOHN LENNON unless she is properly protected.
The 49 year old, who shot to fame on hit TV show Britain's Got Talent last year (09), called in cops earlier this month (Sep10) after she received a string of frightening messages from a man alleging to be her brother Gerry.
The mystery man has also been targeting her record company asking for Simon Cowell, according to reports.
And Boyle's sibling Gerry is so concerned over the imposter's calls, he fears it is only "a matter of time" before she is targeted by an obsessed fan in the same way the Beatles legend was shot by Mark Chapman in 1980.
He tells Britain's News of the World, "Susan knows having stalkers goes with the territory. She's massively well known so having people interested in her is going to happen. It's down to her management to work it out for her. How has someone been able to contact her?
"Our family have very serious reservations about whether she has enough security at the moment. She needs protection or it's a matter of time.
"Mark Chapman killed John Lennon because he knew he was an easy target with no security. That's the same as Susan right now. I've been telling them that for ages. It is scary."

hard to think living could be so tense- instead of worrying about dying it appears susan is enjoying living her life right now- she is a very pleasant person to watch- not the kind you would associate deviant behavior people to concern themselves with-it has been so enjoyable to see susan realize such success and her voice is really such a wonderful gift to go along with her amazing story- a gift to her and a gift to many of us who feel good at watching a good person receive blessings in life.jw
