Carolina Flack, beloved UK TV presenter, passed away on Saturday morning at only 40 years old.
Her family said in a statement, " We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th of February. We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time."
Additionally, the family's lawyer revealed that the host took her own life and was found in her East London apartment.
Apparently Caroline was set to face a judge on March 4, pertaining to an assault case she was fighting. Her tennis star boyfriend, Lewis Burton, had accused her of attacking him with a lamp at their home -- for which she was charged and pled not guilty.
Her boyfriend finally broke his silence via Instagram to share a photo of the couple with the caption:
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 💔
