Susan Boyle is to apologise to airport staff, following an incident at Heathrow earlier this week, it has been claimed.
On Tuesday, it was reported that Susan had to be escorted out of the British Airways lounge at the London airport, following what was described at the time as a “heated disagreement” staff, which included intervention from the police.
The Sun have now said that Susan is planning to pen an apology to the staff involved in the incident, explaining it was a result of her Asperger’s syndrome, which was "triggered" by the stress of being in an airport.
An insider tells the newspaper: “Susan is absolutely devastated by what happened and is really upset by her behaviour.
“She can’t even remember what the row was over or why it suddenly became so heated. Airports are a really stressful place for her and although she has to use them regularly to perform around the world, her management are looking to limit her flights and find ways to calm her when in them.”
Susan previously spoke about how her Asperger’s syndrome can cause her to act irrationally, in an interview with the Daily Mail in 2014, shortly after she was diagnosed.
She explained: “It never happens on stage. Off stage, well, it happens lots. It always has. But I’m getting better at dealing with it because I know what it is. If I feel I’m going to take a mood swing, I get up and leave.
“I like to see myself as someone with a problem, but one I can solve. It is definitely getting better. Since the diagnosis I’ve learned strategies for coping with it and the best one is always to just walk away.”
It was previously claimed that Susan had been heard shouting for help while waiting for a flight in Derry, Northern Ireland, earlier this month, eventually being taken to a private space and comforted by airport staff.
Her spokesperson said after the incident at Heathrow: "Susan is currently recovering and on her way home to Scotland by other means."
