Susan Boyle's brother has aimed a bitter rant at the star's management company - accusing the singer's representatives of "controlling" her and keeping "her family away".
The Scottish sensation's brother Gerry does not "trust" or "approve" of the team which has been hired to oversee Boyle's career, insisting he's angry at the way his sister has been treated.
Gerry does not specify what prompted his concerns, only revealing "certain things have come to light".
He says, "The Boyle family have made it clear to Susan's management that we neither trust nor approve of them. Certain things have come to light - we are very, very concerned and very, very angry with the way she is being treated.
"The management who control - you notice I use the word control - Susan has kept her family away."
