Susan Boyle is afraid she's broke, wants money for new furniture

International singing sensation Susan Boyle is having  a meltdown over financial fears.

The quirky Scottish singer is reportedly upset because she has to live on a weekly allowance of around $750, has no credit cards, has to travel by bus and can't afford furniture for her new five-bedroom house.

Susan's brother Gerry Boyle tells the Daily Mail: "When Susan realized she can't just walk into a bank and take out her own money, she had a fit because she thought she was down to her last few quid. She was extremely distressed. She lives in fear of losing everything and returning to her old life before she made it big."
