Rapper boyfriend of actor John Michie's daughter blames parents for not helping her, court hears

The rapper boyfriend of actor John Michie’s daughter blames the Holby City star and his wife for failing to get help as she died of drugs overdose, a court heard.

Ceon Broughton allegedly stood by and filmed 24-year-old Louella Fletcher-Michie while she was suffering hallucinations and calling out for her parents having taken the substance 2C-P at Dorset’s Bestival music festival in September 2017.

Broughton denied giving her the drug or taking any himself. But prosecutors claim he did not get help because he was serving a suspended sentence and would likely be jailed if he was found to have supplied her with drugs.

The grime star said during a police interview that he had wanted to carry his girlfriend to the medical tent, which was just 400 metres away, but her parents told him to call a staff member over instead, Winchester Crown Court heard.

The 29-year-old told officers the day after her death that he thought she had taken LSD and was “fine at first” but then the situation “spiralled” out of control.

He said: “I called her mum and she told me to get to someone in high vis. I was trying to calm [Louella] down, she was rolling around in stinging nettles and stuff.
