THEY were once inseparable and shot to stardom together, but Susan Boyle and her beloved cat Pebbles have been living apart for eight months.

The Britain’s Got Talent sensation – whose debut album topped the charts around the world – has visited her 11-year-old cat just three times since last July, it has been revealed.

Pebbles now lives with the elderly friend of one of Boyle’s management team in Wanstead, East London, after Simon Cowell said that travelling with a cat was a problem.

Retired accountant Pamela Eaton-Browne, who has been looking after Peebles for around eight months, said she is given just £4 per day to fund the cat’s lavish tastes.

The 76-year-old said: “One day Simon Cowell said to my friend, ‘do you know anyone who will look after this cat, because Susan’s flying all over the world and what do you do with the cat?’

“Anyway, this friend said to me, ‘we all know you like cats, would you have Susan’s cat for a couple of weeks?’”

“I never expected to have her for all this time.”

Pamela, who has two cats of her own, Truffles and Sapphire, says that the £4 does not cover Pebbles fancy dishes.

She said: “She has little pouches of premium wet food in gravy for breakfast.

“She’s always got a bowl of Royal Canin biscuits and they’re £3.40 a packet.

“At lunchtime she has chicken and teatime she has poached or steamed fish.”

Pamela explained that the last time Susan visited Pebbles hid from her for the whole time she was there.

She said: “They pulled up at 2.40pm. It was Susan, my friend and the new PA- who is one of her nieces – a very nice lady who sits there and pats Susan’s hand.

“They made such a racket, the three of them, that Pebbles shot under the wardrobe and didn’t want to know.

“So Susan was here for an hour and a half and didn’t see Pebbles.”

Boyle has had commitments across the globe since the launch of her new album, including appearing on America’s top chat show, Oprah.

The singer from Blackburn in West Lothian still owns her old house, despite being offered a luxury apartment in the US.

A spokeswoman for Susan confirmed that the two had split, saying: “This lady has met Susan on a couple of occasions and she’s looking after Pebbles at the moment for Susan.”

  1. Hey Susan Boyle fans. Can’t you see you’re being misled a bit here guys?
    On her official website they’ve suddenly posted this revisionist message: “As fans will know, Susan has often said when asked about her cat, ‘Pebbles is very well and being looked after by a lovely lady in London’.”
    That has never been said before! Her publicity people are only saying that because the Daily Mirror in London have exposed the truth – that Susan has only had contact with Pebbles three times since last July.
    Before that, they were pumping out untrue stories – often spreads in the Daily Mail – about how close Susan was to Pebbles, how she couldn’t bear to be apart from her cat. And they had the cheek to create a clothing line based around Pebbles – the cat she hardly ever sees.
    And no press reports claimed that Susan had abandoned Pebbles. The Mirror story simply pointed out that she hardly has any contact with Pebbles.
    And the friend Pamela did not wish to remain anonoymous as her official website claims – in fact she chose to do a full interview in the newspaper. You can see a more full version if you search for the Daily Record version.
    I love Susan as much as all of you, but don’t be misled like this by her publicity machine – they have been caught out telling white lies to fans here for quite some time and I’m glad this story exposed the truth.
