The ex-wife of Bayern Munich star Jerome Boateng, Kasia Lenhardt, was found dead just seven days after being divorced.
The 25-year-old model was discovered to be lifeless in an apartment in Berlin, according to news in the English and German press.
After 15 months of being together, Boateng, the elder brother of Black Stars midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, broke up with Kasia.
After the two exchanged words on social media, the split formed a row. Jerome accused his ex-wife of crippling his relationship with his family and former girlfriend in one of his messages.
On the other side, Lenhardt vowed to strike back as she recovered from the break-up.
The Bayern Munich defender said he was being blackmailed by the model in an earlier interview with the German newspaper Bild.
He said, ‘By breaking up my relationship with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and my dad, Kasia became my girlfriend and blackmailed me.
‘I decided, then, to stick to Kasia and try to make it work. Even making the bond with her audience was because of pressure from Kasia to do so. They weren’t mine.
“Kasia also threatened to kill me during our relationship. She was threatening to kill my future, even trying to make me lose my kids.
‘Kasia said that by accusing me of beating her, she will do so. She knew that the mother of my children had accused me of the same thing, and we had a lawsuit over it.
‘Kasia had called the mother of my children and said that she would support her in court. This in order to kill me.’
