Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has spoken of her frustration at fans who ask her to pay off their debts by sending her their bank statements.

The star, who is estimated to be worth more than $30 million (£20 million), chooses to ignore the letters because she cannot give handouts to everybody.

She tells Britain's Ok! magazine, "I get them (begging letters) all the time but you just have to ignore them because you can't give to everybody.

"I sometimes get bank statements posted through my door asking me to pay off their debts! Some people have a heck of a cheek!"
