The boyfriend of late Love Island star Sophie Gradon tried to take his own life four years ago before being found dead yesterday.
Heartbroken Aaron Armstrong – who discovered his girlfriend’s lifeless body in a bedroom at her parent’s house on June 20 – posted several emotional posts in the weeks after her death.
And after being accused of ‘attention seeking’ by vile trolls, he hit back revealing he had been battling mental health problems for 10 years and had even tried to kill himself.
"I found her. I took my own life 4 years ago and got took down by my brother. You know nothinging you stupid f***ing ****," he wrote on Instagram.
RIP Sophie Gradon
"I make my choice like she did. I’ve been fighting this for 10 years. Go f*** yourself. This post I’m talking to her, not any of you. Scum bag people like you drive people to suicide. Hope u happy."
Yesterday police confirmed Aaron had tragically been found dead, just five days after Sophie’s funeral.
"At around 12.20pm on July 10 police received a report from the ambulance service that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a property on Furnace Road in Bebside, Blyth," a Northumbria Police spokesman said.
"There is not believed to be any third party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner."
In an Instagram post on July 2, he hinted at what was to come, writing that he would be seeing her again ‘very soon’.
"I will never stop loving u and my heart will be yours until the day I join you I will see u very soon my angel so keep are bed warm for me," he wrote.
And in his final Instgram post, he admitted he was longing to be with her.
"I just wish I could cuddle you all day miss you so much man Sophie not a minute goes by with out your gorgeous smile being a picture in my mind," he wrote.
"Everyday we spent together was so amazing I need them days back I love you princess."
Sophie died at her parents’ home in Medburn, Northumberland, where she was house sitting while they were away on holiday. She was just 32.
The ex-Miss Great Britain starred in the 2016 series of the ITV2 show, and coupled up with Thomas Powell before forming the show’s first same-sex pairing with Katie Salmon.
