Caroline Flack’s boyfriend ‘hit with phone after finding messages from woman’

Caroline Flack , 40, and her boyfriend Lewis Burton , 27, reportedly got into an alleged bust-up after she saw messages from one of his 60-year-old clients.

The Love Island host was arrested and subsequently charged with assault by beating on Friday, though it's reported Lewis doesn't want to press charges.

The London Ambulance Service previously confirmed they had treated two people and taken one to hospital after the incident, with the Sun claiming it was Caroline who was taken in the ambulance.

Now, it's reported that both Caroline and Lewis want to put everything behind them, as it was sparked by some misunderstood messages.

A source reportedly told the publication: "It was a stupid drunken row which got out of control. Caroline accused him of sleeping around and found messages on his mobile phone which made her angry and upset.

"They were from one of his tennis clients, a 60-year-old woman, which she misconstrued. Caroline got paranoid.

"She started massively over-thinking and convinced herself Lewis was flirting with another woman."

"In the panic over the injuries to her, Lewis called 999 for an ambulance. But when cops arrived along with the ambulance crews both of them were mortified.

"Neither Lewis nor Caroline wanted the matter to go any further, obviously.
