His pal, a rapper known as ‘Milkavelli’ posted a photo of Broughton and Louella at the beach with the words: ‘I love you Ceon. You don’t deserve this. I got you forever.’
Milkavelli (pictured) said of Broughton: ‘That boy is about to be sent to jail for losing his girl when he did everything possible to try and help’
He added further upset for the family of Louella when by ranting on Instagram: ‘That boy is about to be sent to jail for losing his girl when he did everything possible to try and help.’
‘Anyone that disagrees with what I just said. Unfollow me, right f******now. Block me, do whatever the f*** you want.’
The photo of the couple, with their arms entwined, has received just under 1,000 likes and a slew of comments supporting the grime star.

Broughton (pictured holding a knife alongside Milkavelli centre) had given six times the fatal dose of new drug 2-CP to his girlfriend as they partied at the festival before her 25th birthday
Broughton continued recording after her death and blamed his failure to help her on a 24-week suspended prison sentence that he’d been handed one month before
The rapper had given six times the fatal dose of hallucinogenic 2-CP to his yoga instructor girlfriend as they partied at the festival hours before her 25th birthday.
He continued recording after her death and blamed his failure to help her on a 24-week suspended prison sentence that he’d been handed one month before.
Winchester Crown Court previously heard Louella was the first person in the world to die from taking the drug – a stimulant between ecstasy and LSD – when her body was found on September 11, 2017.
Broughton finally apologised to her family for not doing more to save Louella today when he said in a court statement: ‘Sorry I didn’t do more to save Louella. Sorry for the suffering I caused to those who loved Louella. I want to make things right.’
But sentencing him today, Mr Justice Goose said he displayed ‘grossly negligent conduct… in the face of her very obvious suffering.’
The judge said: ‘The video recordings you took show you without any concern at all. While you were doing little to help Louella you were sending messages to a friend asking him to say that Louella had obtained the drugs from an unknown person.’

He slammed the killer’s actions as ‘selfish’, making clear that he was more concerned with avoiding arrest than saving Miss Fletcher-Michie’s life.
Her father, who was visibly emotional and tearful, said today: ‘I wake up every morning to face life starting again without Louella, our daughter, our sister, our friend.
‘Our family is now broken. For what? It makes no sense. [We’ve endured] a trial where we have been subjected to the horrible truth of Louella’s lonely death.
‘I go to bed every night with thoughts of how Louella cried out to her mum and dad, brother and sister, to help her. But there was only one person who could have helped.
