Danny has claimed Flack was considering changing her plea, in a text message he missed on Valentine’s Day
Caroline Flack had pleaded not guilty in December to assaulting boyfriend Lewis Burton during a row on 12 December, Burton, 27, did not want to pursue the prosecution, but the CPS decided to carry on with the charges that many said led to her taking her own life.
Now, her ex-boyfriend Danny has claimed Flack was considering changing her plea, in a text message he missed on Valentine’s Day, the day before Caroline was found dead.
In an emotional video shared to Instagram, the rugby star said: ‘She texted me on Friday and she said that she had to plead guilty, and I had a game of rugby. Which again, is another story, another distraction – everything is a distraction until we actually understand that love and healing and coming together is what we need to do.; Danny – who dated Caroline for two months last year – had previously tweeted: ‘I missed her call because of a f*****g game. I’ve been up all night. Never cried this much. But I’m showing u it’s ok to be vulnerable.’
Caroline had written: ‘On December the 12th 2019 I was arrested for common assault on my boyfriend …Within 24 hours my whole world and future was swept from under my feet and all the walls that I had taken so long to build around me, collapsed. I am suddenly on a different kind of stage and everyone is watching it happen. ‘I have always taken responsibility for what happened that night. Even on the night. But the truth is …. It was an accident.
