The model girlfriend of Bayern Munich soccer star Jerome Boateng was found dead in her Berlin, Germany apartment, officials say.
Police are investigating Kasia Lenhardt’s death as suspicion of suicide.
A police spokesman said: “Yesterday at around 8.30 pm there was a police operation in Charlottenburg on suspicion of suicide. A lifeless person was found in the home. There are no indications of third-party involvement.”
Kasia, who had Jerome’s name tattooed on her torso, died a week after a nasty public split from the soccer superstar. The couple dated for 15 months before they broke up, according to The Sun newspaper.
Jerome parted ways with the 25-year-old model after she wrecked his car in January, resulting in the car being written off as a total loss.
Her blood alcohol level was above the legal limit.
In a statement after the breakup, Jerome stated Kasia “destroyed” his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Silvera, the mother of his children.
He said it was time to “draw a line” and “apologize to everyone I’ve hurt” including Rebecca and their children.
“Kasia became my girlfriend by destroying the relationship with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and my family and blackmailed me,” he wrote.
But Kasia took to social media to say she dumped him because of the World Cup winner’s “lies and constant infidelity”.
“Now is where you draw the line. Enough,” she wrote in a cryptic post on Instagram. She also referred to the pro athlete as “the devil” and promised to “speak up” and “fight back”.
Calling Kasia’s messages “manipulative”, Rebecca told RTL news outlet: “Kasia destroyed my family for her own benefit. I’m not going to let her destroy Jerome too. I’m not going to let her play the victim. She’s done enough damage.”
The model leaves behind a son, Noah, from a previous relationship. Kasia is best known as a contestant on “Germany’s Next Top Model” in 2012.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people.
