Susan Boyle is quitting her native Scotland for London, after record bosses persuaded her to move to a more secure property.
The internet sensation's brother Gerry recently told reporters how the star lives in constant fear of attacks after an intruder broke into her small home in West Lothian, Scotland in January (10).
The scare came after two trespassers were spotted snooping in her garden over the Christmas period (Dec09).
Boyle's security was increased on the orders of mentor Simon Cowell, but she reportedly rebuffed all urges for her to move away from her hometown so she could live in a safer area.
However, Boyle has backed down to her label's pleas - agreeing to live in London for most of the time, while still keeping her three-bed house, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
And her lavish new apartment will be a second home for her beloved cat Pebbles.
A source says, "She has now agreed to move to a place in the city, where she'll stay when busy working. During promotion commitments, it is thought she will stay for weeks at a time. The flat will be cat-friendly, so she can take Pebbles too."
