Susan Boyle was reportedly returning home from a recording session in London for American Idol judge Simon Cowell‘s Haiti relief single. When she arrived at her home in Blackburn, Scotland, she discovered a male intruder was inside her house. When the man saw Boyle, he reportedly fled past her and ran away.

“Lothian and Borders Police were called to an address in Blackburn at around 9:50 PM yesterday following reports of a disturbance,” a police report said. According to the BBC, a 16-year-old boy was questioned and released by police in connection to the break-in. Boyle still lives in her childhood home, despite earning millions from record sales and public appearances. Unfortunately, this means would-be stalkers and burglars have no trouble finding her location easily.

A rep for Susan Boyle, who rose to International fame after her audition on Britain’s Got Talent, said the singer was “shocked but unharmed.” Boyle told reporters outside her home, “I’m fine. It’s in the hands of the police now.”

Police are still investigating the incident and are asking the public for any information they may have. “Anyone who was in or around Yule Terrace at the time of the incident and saw or heard anything suspicious is asked to contact police immediately,” police officials said in a press statement.

We’re just glad Susan wasn’t harmed, although we’re sure she’s probably quite shaken up by having a strange man break into her house!
