The famous British program presenter, Caroline Flack, died at the age of 40, as a result of her suicide, a day after Valentine’s Day, which was tense with her boyfriend, and days before her trial session for assaulting him.
The body of the beloved broadcaster was found at her home in the British capital, London, on Saturday, a day after her boyfriend, tennis player Louis Burton, tried to communicate with her.
A judge had issued an order preventing Flack from communicating with her boyfriend before the trial, whose hearings were supposed to begin on March 4.
The Caroline Flack family released a statement saying: “We can confirm that Caroline died today, February 15 … We would like to ask the press to respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time, and we ask you not to communicate with us or photograph us.”
Flack’s problems with her 27-year-old boyfriend escalated last December after she was arrested for assaulting him with a lamp inside their house, according to Sky News Arabia.
Prosecutor Kitty Weiss said that the police found Flack and her boyfriend stained with blood, noting that the broadcaster assaulted him during his sleep, and broke a glass, which also caused her injury.
For his part, Burton did not support the prosecutor’s statements, but the judge prevented her from communicating with him until the trial date.
On Valentine’s Day, Burton posted a picture of him with Flack, commenting on it, saying: “Happy Valentine’s Day,” so that she could publish a photo of her with a dog, a day before she committed suicide.
