To be a bit cynical about SuBo's new boyfriend.

She strikes me as a lovely woman. However she is very rich and has MH issues and that is a good combination for any opportunist looking for cash.

I am speaking as someone who was conned out of my entire life savings, my house, my car, the lot when very ill with MH issues. It happens and I really hope this is not what has attracted this guy to her.

Perhaps I am just being a cynic because I have had a bad experience and perhaps I should be happy that she has finally found love.

Your thoughts please.

What boyfriend? Google shows me nowt.

LaurieFairyCake Sat 29-Nov-14 21:40:13

I'm not sure we can discuss this appropriately or sensitively.

If we suggest he's after her for her money then we suggest no one would want her for herself sad

It would be tragic to see someone use SuBo as a means to get rich quick.

She has Aspergers - not mental health issues.

26Point2Miles Sat 29-Nov-14 21:40:21

Which boyfriend? What do you know about him?

You are being ridiculous

That is the link.

I read about that earlier today but very little detail.
I will say, cynically, she has, I'd imagine, many people surrounding her who will look out for her as their pay cheques depend on it.
Not everyone in her postion, MH wise, can say they have the same protection.
Plus SB seems to be very well recently so let's all hope for the best.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Sat 29-Nov-14 21:44:47

Meh I hope he's lovely.

Loads of women with Aspergers manage to meet men and get married and have children and ALL kinds.

It's patronising to be concerned.

raltheraffe Sat 29-Nov-14 21:45:04

Laurie by suggesting he is after her for the money certainly does not imply that no-one would want her for herself.

Birdsgottafly Sat 29-Nov-14 21:45:47

""She has Aspergers - not mental health issues.""

She has a complex diagnosis, through being starved of oxygen at birth and then not receiving appropriate care etc for her issues.

I think the use of Subo, is insulting in itself.

I agree that your post does suggest that no-one would want her for herself, OP.

Very unnecessary thread.

"But you see, I'm not mad or simple or any of the other names that I have been called over the years. I have Asperger's and it doesn't define me, it gives a greater understand of who I am.

For over 50 years I struggled not understanding what was wrong, feeling that I had been unfairly labeled but at 51 when I was diagnosed with Asperger's it was a huge moment of relief, understanding and acceptance.

raltheraffe Sat 29-Nov-14 21:48:42

Thank you Claw for that incredibly condescending education on Asperger's. Please do not assume I know zero about this condition.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Sat 29-Nov-14 21:49:11

Birds Subo is no different to the other stars who get called silly names like Madge for Madonna, Brangelina and similar.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Sat 29-Nov-14 21:49:51

Ralther and right back at you. I also have personal experience of it which I'm not going into simply to defend myself to you !

raltheraffe Sat 29-Nov-14 21:49:56

How is the use of the term Subo offensive? It is a shortened version of her name ffs

Poolomoomon Sat 29-Nov-14 21:49:57

well he's American and they met in a hotel. How big is she in the US? Maybe he had no idea who she was initially, just found her attractive and wanted to talk to her? Or maybe he was a genuine fan in awe of her? Also he's a doctor so he's hardly going to be skint now is he?

Leave her be. I'm sure she has a lot of people looking out for her best interests. I'm pleased she's found someone and hope they're happy together.

LaurieFairyCake Sat 29-Nov-14 21:51:22

raltheraffe - of course it does, since we don't know him at all.

JeanSeberg Sat 29-Nov-14 21:52:05

Is J-Lo offensive too then? hmm

AgentProvocateur Sat 29-Nov-14 21:52:08

Offensive thread.

crumblebumblebee Sat 29-Nov-14 21:52:32

I agree, I think this thread is patronising.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Sat 29-Nov-14 21:52:32

Yes Agent, yes it bloody well is.

simbacatlivesagain Sat 29-Nov-14 21:52:56

She is enormous in the USA- more so than here these days.

Joolsy Sat 29-Nov-14 21:54:51

She seems like a very intelligent woman and I'm sure she wouldn't let anyone take advantage of her. People tend to assume she's simple and a bit of a pushover but from what I've seen of her on TV she seems the opposite.

divingoffthebalcony Sat 29-Nov-14 21:57:05

She always comes across as extremely vulnerable, and like birds I suspect her SN doesn't begin and end with Aspergers. Of course it's entirely appropriate that that stays private.
