Entertainment News: Susan Boyle reveals diagnosis

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has Asperger's syndrome.

She made the revelation in Sunday's edition of the observer newspaper. Boyle says, as a child, she was told she had brain damage.

It wasn't until last year she went to a specialist and learned it was Aspergers,  a high functioning form of autism.

Boyle told the newspaper she hopes this announcement will lead people to treat her with more understanding.

Willie Nelson and the Bare Naked ladies have also canceled shows at the theme park.
