Boyle — who shot to fame on the UK TV talent show Britain’s Got Talent – is currently promoting her second album, The Gift, which was released earlier this month.
Susan — who’s believed to have earned around $8m from her debut album — recently insisted she’s careful with her money.
“I’ve only just learned how to go in a taxi, I don’t flash the cash,” she said.
“I’m always careful with money. I’m not saying I’m mean, but I’m always careful.
Boyle — who suffered minor brain damage after her mother was forced to have an emergency Cesarean section birth — has also insisted she was misdiagnosed when doctors claimed she would grow up with emotional and learning difficulties.
“Some people in the medical profession said to my mother when I was one years old, ‘Don’t expect too much of her’,” Boyle said.
“How can they foretell that at that young age? They can’t. Hyperactivity in the ’60s was considered a mental illness. It’s not; it’s Attention Deficit Disorder, they call it now.
“I think with myself, it was the wrong misrepresentation. My mum and dad knew it was, (doctors were) professionals and they tended to think that doctors were God and they knew everything, but they don’t know everything.”
