THE rapper boyfriend of a Holby City star’s daughter filmed her as she lay dying after he gave her Class A drugs, a court heard.
Rapper, Ceon Broughton failed to get help as Louella Fletcher-Michie died one hour before her 25th birthday, Winchester Crown Court heard
Louella Fletcher-Michie, 24, died at Bestival as her boyfriend, Ceon Broughton, 29, recorded her instead of getting help.
Louella, the daughter of actor John Michie, took the drug 2C-P in the woods at the Dorset music festival on September 10 2017 and died an hour before her 25th birthday.
Her parents rushed to the site after telephoning grime artist Broughton and heard Louella “screeching”, Winchester Crown Court heard.
However, Broughton insisted she was fine and referred to Louella as a “drama queen”, jurors heard.
Broughton, who performs under the name CEONRPG, denies manslaughter and supplying Louella the drug.
Prosecutor William Mousley QC said Broughton failed to get help because of a suspended jail term he was handed one month earlier and feared the consequences, the court heard.
Mr Mousley said: “[The drug] had a terrible effect upon her, leading to her death after a significant period of suffering in woods close to the festival site, all of which he must have observed.”
Jurors were told Broughton filmed Louella, a dancer and yoga teacher, as her condition deteriorated.
In clips shown to the court, she repeatedly shouts at Broughton to telephone her mother, Carol Fletcher-Michie, but he tells her to “put your phone away”.
He filmed her when she was disturbed, agitated, and then seriously ill over a period of hours. He even did so, the prosecution suggest, after she was apparently dead.Prosecutor William Mousley QC
Ms Fletcher-Michie eventually spoke to Louella at 6.48pm and grew concerned after she “could hear her screeching”.
Mr Mousley said: “She told her husband that they needed to get to her and they dropped everything to travel from north London to Dorset.”
Her brother, Sam, also contacted Broughton and urged him to seek medical help.
But Broughton sent Sam a message which said “call back in an hour” and referred to Louella as a “drama queen”, the jury heard.
Jurors were told Sam also knew Broughton and had been given drugs by him previously.
Mr Mousley added: “In addition, during that extended period of time when they were together he filmed her on a number of occasions.
“He filmed her when she was disturbed, agitated, and then seriously ill over a period of hours.
“He even did so, the prosecution suggest, after she was apparently dead
