A friend of Ceon Broughton has defended the rapper after he was jailed for the manslaughter of his girlfriend Louelle Fletcher-Michie.
Broughton gave the dance teacher a ‘bumped-up’ dose of party drug 2C-P at Bestival in 2017, and filmed her hallucinating and writing in agony as she overdosed, instead of going to get help.
He was sentenced to eight and a half years at Winchester Crown Court this morning, but in a sensational video, his friend insists he "didn’t deserve" it.
"I LOVE YOU CEON. YOU DONT DESERVE THIS. I GOT YOU FOREVER," the rapper who is known as Milkavelli captioned an image of Broughton and Louella sat by the sea.
Then in a since-deleted video, the star – who was in the same skateboarding gang as Broughton – raged, "Anyone that f*****… anyone that disagrees with what I just said.
"Unfollow me, right f***** now. Block me, do whatever the f*** you want.
"That boy is about to be sent to jail for losing his girl when he did everything possible to try and help. F*** you all."
Other supporters of Broughton were quick to comment, with one agreeing, "Prayers up for Ceon. Tough enough losing your Mrs so tragically, let alone getting pinned for it and getting 8 years. RIP Louella."
"Free Ceon the system is f*****" added another.
Broughton and Milkavelli are both members of Laigon Life skateboarding gang, which also produces rap music. The duo performed under the stage name CEONRPG.
Milkavelli has since turned comments off the image and removed several pictures of Broughton from his social media.
Earlier today, Broughton apologised to Louella’s heartbroken family, including her Holby City actor dad John Michie.
"Sorry I didn’t do more to save Louella, sorry for the suffering I caused to everyone who loved Louella, I want to make things right," he said in a statement read out in court.
The prosecution claimed during the trial that Broughton had failed to take "reasonable" steps to seek medical help for Miss Fletcher-Michie.
The jury was shown videos of Louella taken by the defendant as her condition worsened – and possibly after she had died.
In clips shown to the court, Louella could be seen shouting for Broughton to telephone her mother, Carol, but he told her to "put your phone away".
Her mother eventually contacted Broughton at 6.48pm and heard her daughter "screeching" before she and her husband drove 130 miles from London to the festival site to find her daughter.
Prosecutor William Mousley QC said Broughton did not get help because he was handed a suspended jail term one month earlier and feared the consequences.
