As the news of Keith Flint’s death continued to sink in, it has been claimed the Prodigy singer had a ‘secret girlfriend’ for two years.

A week after his body was found last Monday at the age of 49, it has been reported the performer was in a serious relationship with mum-of-three Faye Kelbie, 43.

Despite the relationship ending ‘weeks’ before his body was found in his Essex home, it has been reported the two were in touch days before his death.

The Sun has claimed the pair met through friends in their village in Essex, after Keith split with his wife Mayumi Kai ‘three years ago’.

‘Faye is absolutely devastated. For over two years, Keith was a huge part of her life and she adored him,’ a source told the publication.

‘They split up because she struggled with the amount of time he was touring.

‘Faye just wishes she had known the extent of his unhappiness and mental health issues — she would have done all she could to help. But the feeling is that Keith made his mind up to end things weeks ago.’

Despite the claim he was in a relationship, Keith’s rocker comrade Johnny Rotten last week alleged the Firestarter star was ‘unloved and alone’ in the leadup to his passing.

While heading into the premiere of Epix’s Punk at SIR in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, the 63-year-old Sex Pistols frontman urged his musical mates to make sure the same fate didn’t happen to anyone else in a similar position and that they could speak to him.

‘My heart is broken for him. He was a good friend of mine,’ the God Save The Queen singer said as he began to tear up. ‘Nobody loved him and he was left alone and he got destroyed.

‘Why? Do so many people in this industry be left alone? Come to me, I’m Johnny.’

He added to TMZ: ‘What you’ve got to understand is, were not looking after each other anymore … any of you out there, come talk to me. Alright? Come talk to me. We do not need to die.’

Keith was found dead at his home on Monday morning in Dunmow, Essex.

Police confirmed he had passed away in statement, saying that the star was ‘pronounced dead at the scene’ and his death is ‘not being treated as suspicious’.

His cause of death hasn’t yet been confirmed, but Keith’s bandmate Liam Howlett told fans he took his own life.
