London, April 24(ANI): Singer Susan Boyle had to be given sedatives while on a flight to Tokyo, as she kept “shrieking” which disturbed her fellow passengers, it has emerged.
The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ star was onboard Upper Class section of a Virgin flight.
Apparently, the 49-year-old celebrity’s minders gave her pills to help her sleep but the medicine’s effect wouldn’t last for too long.
She allegedly walked up and down the aisle, shouting.
“The sedatives kept wearing off. It was lucky she was in the relatively small upstairs cabin, otherwise she would have disturbed the whole aircraft,” the Daily Star quoted a doctor on the flight, as saying.
A passenger on the flight said Boyle was “unbearable” and even her team of 10 minders could not keep her under control.
The onlooker said: “She was shrieking at the top of her voice and disturbing the other passengers.
“At one moment she was highly animated, then she would be in a drowsy state and helped back to her seat.
“Some of us were worried that she might do something silly because we were just outside the cockpit door.” (ANI)
