The model ex girlfriend of Bayern Munich footballer Jerome Boateng, Kasia Lenhardt, has been found dead just a week after the pair split up.
Kasia Lenhardt, 25, was found dead by police in a Berlin apartment believed to belong to the footballer, as officers said the death is not being treated as suspicious.
Kasia, who had a son from a previous relationship, had been dating 32-year-old Boateng for 15 months before the pair split on February 2nd amid a vicious fight that saw the couple use social media and the press to exchange blows.
Boateng had accused Kasia of sabotaging his relationship with ex-girlfriend Rebecca and his family – he has twins, a boy and a girl, with another ex – before they started dating and of blackmailing him into staying with her.
Meanwhile Kasia – who had the footballer’s name tattooed on her ribcage – had branded her ex ‘the devil’ and vowed to ‘speak up’ and ‘fight back’ once she had recovered from the break-up.
News of Kasia’s death was confirmed by fellow model Sara Kulka, who uploaded a photo of the pair on Instagram.
Alongside it, she wrote: ‘Rest in peace. You wonderful person, I miss you and would have loved to say goodbye.
‘I hope you find your peace now and I hope the truth comes out now, I know how much you wished it would.
