The model girlfriend of Jerome Boateng killed herself on her son’s sixth birthday just a week after her relationship with the German footballer imploded, it has been revealed.
Kasia Lenhardt, 25, was found dead at a luxury apartment thought to belong to Boateng in Berlin’s upmarket Charlottenborg neighbourhood on Tuesday night by police, and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
A friend of Kasia’s told MailOnline that Tuesday was son Noah’s sixth birthday and that she was home alone when she died. Noah is Kasia’s only child, born when she was aged 19 and in a previous relationship with a man whose name has not been made public.
Boateng has three children, all from previous relationships, including nine-year-old twin daughters Soley and Lamia with ex-fiancee Sherin Senler and a five-year-old son, Jermar, by an unknown woman.
Kasia’s friend told MailOnline: ‘Yesterday was her son Noah’s birthday. Kasia was at home on her own. A member of her family called the police because they could not get hold of her and they were worried.
‘She died a week after Jerome gave an interview in which he said their relationship was over. He said some really nasty things about Kasia. She was very upset by it.’
Her death was confirmed Wednesday by model friend Sara Kulka who paid tribute in a cryptic Instagram post that said: ‘I hope the truth comes out. I know how much you wished it would.’
Polish-born Kasia – real name Katarzyna – had been dating 32-year-old Boateng for 15 months before their relationship fell apart on February 2, sparking a vicious fight that saw the couple exchange blows via social media and the press.
