"People with Asperger's do put a barrier up because they don't know how to trust people. I try not to. I want to let people in and I'd like someone who's a bit like my dad: a strong person, a fair person, probably a very kind person."
"I don't want to say any more about who he is right now as that would be unfair to him, All I'll say is we are around the same age and he was a very nice guy."
The Scottish singer has earned a quite impressive net worth from her singing career. She has an estimated net worth of £26 million. Despite that, she owns £300 fur coat and is fond of Chanel No.5.
