Caroline Flack was “harassed by her ex-partner” before her tragic suicide


Caroline Flack was “harassed by an ex-partner” on the eve of her suicide, court reports have revealed.The Love Island host was just 40 when she committed suicide on February 15 of this year – and weeks after she was arrested on charges of assault following an incident at her north London home in December 2019.

A psychiatrist who examined her reported that the late TV presenter’s stress and anxiety levels were increased by the anonymous stalker as her arrest neared in 2019.

The Crown Prosecution Service received the information two months before Caroline died as she struggled to clear her name and have her assault case dismissed.

The psychiatrist said the harassment Caroline suffered against the ex had contributed to a deterioration in her mental health, reports the Daily Star.

Prosecutors, however, ruled that the information did not relate to the case of her alleged abuser of boyfriend Lewis Burton.

Caroline was advised to report the harassment to the police, while judging it to be a separate crime from the assault case.

The individual accused of the harassing behavior was not called to testify during an inquest into Caroline’s death – and the court was ordered not to name them.

Coroner Mary Hassell, who recorded a suicide verdict in this month’s inquest into Caroline’s death, however, confirmed the individual was not Lewis, 28, who has remained in connection with the television star until her death.

While the Daily Star reports that a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said the force could not find any trace of an allegation of harassment made by the star.

Caroline’s family accused the Crown Prosecution Service of causing the death of the television host.

Mum Christine Flack said the star would still be alive if CPS dropped their assault case against her.

She said: “If it was an ordinary person, you wouldn’t have sued.

“I just think you should be squeamish with yourself.

“There is nothing we can do to bring Caroline back. This girl took her own life because you made an appeal.

Lewis was allegedly hit on the head by a cell phone during an argument, causing bleeding, in the alleged assault that led to Caroline’s arrest.

The tennis star has vigorously denied being assaulted by the star.
