SuBo’s £4 Mil Birthday Payout – April Fools Day, No Joke!

What would you do if on April 1st you were told a check for millions was waiting in the mailbox…you’d probably think it was an April fools joke, right?

Well, not Susan Boyle, the singing sensation formally known as the ‘hairy angel’ is about to receive a whopping £4 million in royalties as part of her earnings for a years hard graft.

It doesn’t seem that long ago since she first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent – the series that propelled her to fame, when Subo walked onto the stage and sang her version of I Dreamed A Dream, a performance which stole the nations hearts.

Now on her upcoming 49th birthday she’ll receive an astonishing lottery-style payment after taking the world by storm.

The mega-bucks payout comes from the sales of her chart-topping debut album and countless international appearances, but according to close friends of the star, they say the money won’t change her one bit.

One close source said: “People have thought of Susan as a millionaire for months already because her album was released in November – but she hasn’t got it yet. It takes time for royalties to come through. She has been told it will be there for her birthday on April 1.

“Until now her management team has made sure she never wanted for anything. She has been receiving an allowance from Simon [Cowell], which has been more than enough to live on.

“But this is her long-awaited pay day finally arriving.”

I Dreamed a Dream, broke British chart records, selling 3.1 million copies in its first four weeks of release. It has since sold more than 8.5 million worldwide.

I say Bravo to SuBo; you are no April fool my dear… But you might want to invest in a good pair of tweezers when the money comes in!
