Caroline Flack was followed in the days before she killed herself


Caroline Flack was "molested by an ex-partner," which added to her stress during the trial that led to her suicide.

The former Love Island host, 40, had a stalker in the days leading up to the trial after an attack on her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

Flack was found dead in her apartment in Stoke Newington, London, next to a note reading "Please drop this trial" the day after hearing her trial was about to take place.

According to a psychiatrist who rated the star, the harassment added to her stress and anxiety.

Crown prosecutors heard of Flack's deteriorating mental health in a medical report two months before her death on February 15.

Lawyers used the information to try to dismiss their attack case, but prosecutors said the harassment was a separate crime.

Yesterday a Metropolitan Police spokesman said there was no record of harassment allegations from the star.

Coroner Mary Hassell recorded a suicide conviction and forbade reporting the perpetrator's name during the two-day investigation.

She added that the molester was not Burton, 28, during the hearing at Coroner's Court in Poplar, east London.

The person responsible was not summoned as a witness.

After the hearing, which ended Thursday, Caroline Flack's mother said police and prosecutors "made it" for the Love Island host.

She said officials are pursuing the court case that sparked her suicide because of her "celebrity status".

Yesterday, Scotland Yard defended an appeal against the Crown Prosecution Service's original decision to warn them. In this step, she was charged with assault.

She insisted that she had no contact with her since she first took office on December 23 last year.

A spokesman for the force told MailOnline: "Given the nature of the alleged crime, a domestic abuse case, the police had to send it to the CPS for decision."

Flack was arrested in December after beating her boyfriend while he was sleeping on suspicion that he had cheated on her.

Burton did not support the prosecution and did not work with the prosecutor.

The CPS originally decided to give her a warning, but the police officer, Detective Inspector Lauren Bateman, filed a formal charge, which was then approved.

In an emotional exchange during the week's investigation, Flack's mother Christine beat up the senior Met police officer.

She pointed out that officials found her at the crime scene with an injury caused by self-harm.

Ms. Flack accused DI Bateman of treating her harder because of her celebrity status, and said about the investigation: “She cut her arm. You have appealed to have them prosecuted. You never bothered to see them.

"If it had been … an ordinary person, you wouldn't have prosecuted.

"I see domestic violence and I just think that you should be disgusted with yourself so we can't do anything to bring Caroline back. I hope you will regret this afterwards. This girl killed herself because you appealed. «

At the beginning of the hearing, DI Batemen had insisted that she had not treated the presenter differently because she was famous and would not change her decisions.
