Caroline Flack’s boyfriend Lewis Burton says he is “lost for words” in touching tribute to star on Instagram
“I was not allowed to be there this time I kept asking and asking.”
Lewis Burton, 27, has broken his silence and taken to Instagram this morning to share a touching tribute to his girlfriend, Caroline Flack, 40, who was found dead in her London flat, yesterday (Saturday 15th February).
According to Flack’s family lawyer, the star took her own life.
In Burton’s heartfelt post to his 125,000 followers, he spoke of his “pain” upon hearing the tragic news. He also spoke out to Flack, saying that he’ll be her “voice” now, promising to “ask all the questions”.
“I will be your voice baby I promise I will ask all the questions you wanted and I will get all the answers”
He posted the following caption alongside a picture of the pair on holiday.
“My heart is broken we had something so special.
“I am so lost for words I am in so much pain I miss you so much I know you felt safe with me you always said I don’t think about anything else when I am with you and I was not allowed to be there this time I kept asking and asking.
“I will be your voice baby I promise I will ask all the questions you wanted and I will get all the answers nothing will bring you back but I will try make you proud everyday.
“I love you with all my heart 💔.”
So, so sad.
“In a world where you can be anything, be kind”
The ex-tennis pro also shared one of Flack’s old posts in his Instagram stories.
He wrote on the post:
“In a world where you can be anything, be kind,” adding “I will love you forever”.
Burton isn’t the only one paying tribute to Caroline today. Many of Caroline’s celebrity friends, including Iain Stirling, Cheryl, Olly Murs and Laura Whitmore have also paid tribute to their lost friend on Instagram.
Caroline Flack was due to stand trial next month
The former Love Island presenter was due to stand trial next month for allegedly assaulting boyfriend Burton last year.
Flack pleaded not guilty and was out on bail, under the condition that she ceased contact with Burton for the duration of the trial.
