“My heart is broken we had something so special,” he wrote.

“I am so lost for words I am in so much pain I miss you so much I know you felt safe with me you always said I don’t think about anything else when I am with you and I was not allowed to be there this time I kept asking and asking.”

“I will be your voice baby I promise I will ask all the questions you wanted and I will get all the answers nothing will bring you back but I will try make you proud everyday.”

“I love you with all my heart.”

Lewis also posted to his Instagram story, sharing a post from Caroline’s page.

The post featured a quote which read: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”

He shared the post alongside the words “I will love you forever,” with a broken heart emoji.

Caroline was arrested for assault by beating on December 12, 2019, after getting into a row with her boyfriend.

The 40-year-old appeared in court later that month, and prosecutors accused her of hitting Lewis with a lamp while he slept. Caroline pleaded not guilty to common assault.

Lewis, 27, also appeared in court to support Caroline, and denied the claims. However a judge banned Caroline from having any form of contact with Lewis. Her trial was set for early March 2020.
