German prosecutors are investigating footballer Jerome Boateng for allegedly tearing the ear of his girlfriend Kasia Lenhardt a year before her death.
Kasia Lenhardt, 25, was discovered in her apartment earlier this month while Boateng was away in Qatar with current club Bayern Munich.
Boateng is accused of intentionally injuring Lenhardt, a former Germany’s Next Top Model contestant, in October 2019 – a little over a year before the brutal public break-up that ended in her death in a Berlin apartment earlier this month.
The week before she died Boateng announced he had split from the stunning model and mother of one after 15 months together.
According to reports in Germany last night defender Boateng, 32, was being investigated over an alleged torn earlobe suffered by Kasia.
Images of the injury were shared on social media before being swiftly deleted just before Kasia was found in her Berlin apartment.
The Munich prosecutor’s office said they were investigating an allegation of willful bodily harm against Kasia which happened in October 2019.
