Caroline Flack has made it back into the news after her mother criticized the actions of the lawyer, Ed Beltrami, who said it was "right" for Caroline to be charged for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Lewis Burton.

Speaking exclusively to Eastern Daily Press, Caroline's mother, Christine, has said that it was deplorable "that Mr Beltrami could not have let my beautiful daughter rest in peace."

Since her passing, her friends have described Caroline as somebody who felt like "she was on her own" as she was struggling with mental health challenges.

Christine also added that her daughter had been unable to defend herself – while she was alive and she couldn't do much now that she is dead.

She then went on to accuse both the prosecutor and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) of "creating the toxic environment, which ultimately led to Caroline's death."

People recalled that trouble began following Ed's claim that Lewis had called the police out of fear for his life to report that Caroline had hit him on the head with a lamp.

The chief prosecutor on the case also added that the late "Love Island" host admitted to authorities who responded to her boyfriend's call that she had indeed assaulted him.

Faced with those facts, Ed said that he had no other choice than to charge Caroline, even though Lewis later took to social media to deny that he was hit over the head with a lamp.

The drama led the TV presenter to step down from hosting "Love Island," and she subsequently took her own life the day after CPS informed her that they were going ahead with the court action against her for assault.

BBC News reported that while confirming the news of her passing, her family asked for some time to grieve without any intrusion from the media.

The story, however, didn't end there as her family later released a social media post she penned down but never published, weeks before her demise.

According to the New York Times, the late 40-year-old used the post to explain that she had been dealing with an emotional breakdown for an extended period.

Daily Mail added that since her passing, her friends have described Caroline as somebody who felt like "she was on her own" as she was struggling with mental health challenges and using anti-depressants before her death.

Heavy also pointed out that several stars, including Boy George and Jack Whitehall, had taken to their social media platforms to pay tribute to her.
