Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle reportedly had a secret crush on a man nearly 19 years older than her. The 66-year-old widower Helmut Glaser, met Boyle, 48, through her church prayer group, and revealed that she had a crush on him. Susan told Helmut last autumn that she loved him, and would like to start a romance.
However, father-of-two had to "let her down gently" because he's too old for her. "Susan had a crush on me last year. We met two years ago at a church group. We met up at prayer meetings for the Legion Of Mary,” the Mirror quoted Helmut as saying. “Susan's lovely - but I'm just too old for her.
"Susan expressed her feelings towards me but I had to let her down gently and remind her that I was old enough to be her father. “I'll be 67 on my next birthday and there's almost 19 years between us. "Susan understood and called me up afterwards and apologised. "It was fine and we had a laugh about it,” he added.
