Singer Susan Boyle was left fearing for her safety after a former employee turned up at her home and drunkenly demanded money.
The star, who shot to global fame after appearing on Britain's Got Talent, called the authorities after a gardener showed up at her home in West Lothian, Scotland to ask for cash.
He is said to have been intoxicated after guzzling alcohol and painkillers.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Susan's home is her sanctuary. She was frightened."
The 22 year old was then taken to a local hospital to seek help after reportedly overdosing on pills.
