Model Kasia Lenhardt, the ex-girlfriend of footballer Jerome Boateng, has been found dead, police have confirmed.
The death of the 25-year-old is not being treated as suspicious.
A Berlin police spokesperson told LADbible: "Our emergency services were alerted to a flat in Charlottenburg last night [9 February] at around 8.30pm on suspicion of suicide. They found a lifeless person in the flat. There are no indications of a violent crime."
Born in Poland, she made a name for herself on Germany's Next Top Model in 2012. She leaves behind a son.
Bayern Munich defender Boateng announced their split last Tuesday (2 February).
On his Instagram story, the 32-year-old said: "As is known from the media, I ended the relationship with Kasia Lenhardt.
"We will go our separate ways from now on. That is regrettable, but for my family and for me it is the only right one."
He continued: "I had to take this step and draw a line. I apologise to everyone I've hurt especially with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and our children.
"I am disappointed in myself too. A man has to take responsibility and act in the interests of his family and I'm doing it now.
"I wish Kasia all the best. Jerome Boateng."
Fellow model and friend Sara Kulka paid tribute to Lenhardt on Instagram.
She said: "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.
"I will never forget you, I don't know anyone who could laugh like you. I send a lot of strength to the family."
