Kasia Lenhardt, a famous model from Poland, has been declared dead just a week after her relationship with Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng came to an end.
After 15 months together, the defender announced the breakup with Lenhardt, after a string of personal issues culminated in Boateng crashing his mini and being charged with drink-driving.
“I have to take responsibility and act in the way that takes care of my family and their interests,” Boateng posted on Instagram.
The Berlin Police found Lenhardt, 25, dead in her apartment in the city on Tuesday, February 9, but have already declared that the case isn’t being treated as a murder investigation.

Boateng’s relationship with the model soured in recent months, with accusations of infidelity and blackmail, although the defender himself refused to be drawn into discussing it publicly.
“I will speak, I have to calm down first, please give me time,” he added.
However, in a recent interview he had accused Lenhardt of sabotaging his relationship with his ex-wife and even suggested that the Polish model had threatened to ruin his reputation.
“She often threatened to destroy me, to ruin my career, to try and make me lose my children and she said she would accuse me of beating her,” he explained.
“She knew that the mother of my children accused me of the same thing.”
Boateng, for his part, has been with the Bayern Munich squad in Qatar since February 6.
