Mourning Lauren Goodger cut a somber figure on Tuesday as her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean was buried just two weeks after the funeral of their newborn daughter Lorena in Essex.
The TOWIE star, 35, watched the procession, which was led by a hearse adorned with a flower arrangement in the shape of a Lamborghini badge.
In an Instagram tribute after the service, she said her late partner was taking care of Lorena while she shared a series of throwback snaps with Jake.
Lauren’s black eye was clearly visible at the service after she was allegedly assaulted on the night of August 4, the day of her baby’s funeral.
After the alleged attack, her boyfriend Charles Drury, 25, was arrested and released on bail.

Awful: Lauren posted a picture on her Instagram after the birth of her daughter holding the newborn’s hand
The alleged attack came just hours after Lauren attended the funeral of her baby daughter Lorena.
Doctors tried in vain to save the 9-pound baby, but she was born with two knots in her umbilical cord, which was tied around her neck.
After her death, her traumatized mother spent hours saying goodbye to her.
The heartbroken star also later revealed that she still “has a little bump,” which sometimes leads her to believe her little girl is “still around.”
She said: “It’s weird. My body feels like it’s restless, like it’s missing a newborn.
Lauren posted an Instagram message sharing how much she loves her daughter, who died minutes after she was born on July 8, and said: “I carried you, I felt you grow. Longed for the day when we would meet. Dreamed of your future. Not only did I know you, I fell in love with you.”
