‘Not a witch hunt’: Lewis Burton defends Caroline Flack after assault

Caroline Flack’s boyfriend Lewis Burton has issued a statement following Caroline Flack’s arrest. The TV presenter was arrested and charged with assault following an incident at her London home last week.

It is believed the 40-year-old threw a phone at her boyfriend Lewis Burton. Despite Caroline’s arrest, Lewis has issued a statement defending his girlfriend, stressing that she does not deserve any hate.

He posted the statement on Instagram this afternoon:

“I’m tired of the lies and abuse aimed at my girlfriend.

“This is not a witch hunt, this is someone’s life. I have not signed any NDA. Why would I?” he asked.

Lewis continued to defend his partner, “Caroline is the most lovely girl. Loyal and kind. She doesn’t deserve any of this,” he added.

On Thursday, Caroline was arrested and charged with assault by beating. 

A spokesperson for the Met Police issued a statement at the time.
