After splitting up with Jerome Boateng just a week ago, the model girlfriend of the German footballer killed herself on her son’s sixth birthday. According to police, Kasia Lenhardt, 25, was found dead at a luxury apartment that was believed to belong to Boateng in Berlin’s upmarket Charlottenborg neighborhood on Tuesday night.
The death is not being treated as suspicious. In a previous relationship with a man whose name has not been revealed, Kasia gave birth to one child – Noah – when she was 17 years old.
He has three children, twin daughters Soley and Lamia with his ex-fiancee Sherin Senler and a son, Jermar, from an unknown relationship. ‘Yesterday was the birthday of Kasia’s son Noah,’ a friend of hers told MailOnline.
At home, Kasia was on her own. In response to their concerns, a member of her family called the police when they were unable to contact her. The death of Jerome’s wife occurred a week after he gave an interview in which he indicated the end of the couple’s relationship. A number of nasty things were said about Kasia by him.
There was a great deal of upset in her heart. Sara Kulka, a model friend, confirmed her death on Wednesday. In a cryptic Instagram post, she said: “I hope the truth will emerge.” “I know how much you wanted it to be true.” Before their relationship ended on February 2 due to a vicious argument in which they used social media and the press to exchange blows, Kasia had been dating Boateng for 15 months.
Prior to their relationship, Boateng had accused Kasia of blackmailing him into staying with his ex-girlfriend Rebecca and her family. During the course of the break-up, Kasia – who had the footballer’s name inked on her ribcage – labeled her ex “the devil” and vowed to “speak out” and “fight back” once she had fully recovered. Earlier that day, Kasia had posted to Instagram about embarking on a ‘new chapter’ in her life.
On Tuesday night, Kasia Lenhardt, 25, was found dead in Berlin on her son Noah’s sixth birthday and just a week after breaking up with her former boyfriend, footballer Jerome Boateng (left).
A friend of Lenhardt reported that she killed herself on Noah’s sixth birthday as a result of allegations Boateng had made about her in the German media (pictured here on Noah’s fifth birthday on February 9 of last year).
According to Lenhardt (left), she broke up with Boateng due to his ‘lies and infidelity’ (pictured, right, Kasia with a tattoo of the footballer’s name visible on her ribs). A paramedic stands outside the apartment where Kasia’s body was discovered late Tuesday evening after police were called to reports of a suicide.
It is not believed that the death is suspicious, according to police. Earlier this week, fellow model Sara Kulka posted a tribute to her on Instagram, saying, “I hope the truth comes out now, as I know how much you wished it would.”

February 9: The body of Kasia is discovered in an apartment in Berlin believed to belong to the footballer. A few hours earlier, she had posted an Instagram story announcing her intention to begin a new chapter in her life.
Additionally, Kasia’s co-star on the TV show Germany’s Next Top Model, Lovelyn Enebechi, mourned her passing.
Rest in peace, dear friend! The wonderful, great person that you are, I miss you and I am deeply saddened by your passing,’ she wrote on Instagram. If I had known you could have said goodbye to me, I would have loved to do so.
I miss you so much and I will never forget you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. Immediately following Kasia’s crash in Berlin on January 5, Boateng, who currently plays for Bayern Munich, announced their split, with German media reporting that she had been over the legal limit when she crashed his Mini.
In response, the athlete said he was taking responsibility for his actions and acting in the interest of his family while apologizing ‘to everyone I have hurt, specifically my ex-girlfriend and our children’.
During an interview with the German newspaper Bild, Boateng accused Kasia of blackmailing him with false allegations of domestic abuse, while at the same time claiming she has a “massive” alcohol addiction.
Despite admitting cheating with Kasia on his ex Rebecca Silvera, he maintains that she is also controlling and abusive. “Kasia became my girlfriend after she broke up with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and blackmailed me. “I decided to stick with her and try to make the relationship work.” he said. In fact, even making the relationship with her public was the result of pressure from Kasia. It was not my property.
In the course of our relationship, Kasia frequently threatened to destroy me. As a result of her threats, my career has been destroyed, and my children have even been threatened. According to Kasia, she would do so by accusing me of beating her.
There is a lawsuit pending against me over this matter and she was aware that my children’s mother had accused me of the same thing. “Kasia contacted my children’s mother and assured her that she would assist her in the court process. There is nothing more important than to destroy me.
In fact, he even claimed that the model used fake social media profiles to attack him and spread false information. In addition, he expressed his hope that she will receive the urgent help that she requires. However, Kasia responded by saying that she had ended the relationship due to Boateng’s ‘lies and constant infidelity’.
Finally, Kasia referred to Boateng as ‘the devil’ and emphasized that she would speak freely once she had collected herself. Give me some time. “I will retaliate!” I have never been so deceived, taken advantage of, and lied to before. Please give me a moment. In an Instagram post, fellow model Sara Kulka confirmed the news of Kasia’s death. Aside from the message, she wrote: “Rest in peace”.
You were a wonderful person, and I miss you dearly and would have loved to say goodbye to you. My sincere wish for you is that you will find peace now, and that the truth will come out soon.
I understand how much you wished it would be revealed. I will never forget you, I do not know anyone who can laugh as well as you. My thoughts are with the family.
As Kasia’s death occurred, Boateng was playing for Bayern Munich in the Fifa Club World Cup in Qatar.
A 2-0 win over Egyptian side Al Ahly SC in the semi-finals secured the team a place in the final on Tuesday.
However, Boateng will not be available as he has requested to return to Munich, and coach Hansi Flick has stated that he will not be playing ‘until further notice’. Before she began dating Boateng, Kasia had a son named Noah from a previous relationship. She rose to prominence on the TV show Germany’s Next Top Model, as well as in other television shows.
Despite Boateng admitting to cheating on Rebecca with Kasia, he said she was controlling and abusive – using fake threats of domestic violence to compel him to stay with her. In December last year, Rebecca Silvera, Boateng’s ex, accused Kasia of stealing him from her and taunting her to manipulate and further hurt her.
In 2012, when she was 17 years old, Kasia (second from left) was a contestant on the TV show Germany’s Next Top Model. Before dating Boateng, she finished fourth in the competition and made a number of other television appearances. In 2012, Kasia appeared on Germany’s Next Top Model and placed fourth.
The VERY complex history of Jerome Boateng’s love-life
A long and troubled relationship between Jerome Boateng and the women in his life has been marked by bitter break-ups, allegations of serial infidelity, and a lawsuit brought by the mother of his children over allegations of abuse.
Throughout his adult life, Boateng has been in an on-off relationship with Sherin Senler, the mother of two of his children – twin daughters, Soley and Lamia, born in 2011. As of 2007, the pair started dating.
However, they have repeatedly split up amid accusations of infidelity, including with model Gina-Lisa Lohfink – though both Boateng and Lohfink deny having a sexual relationship.
In the year that their twins were born, Boateng and Senler separated amid rumors that they would only speak to each other through lawyers.
In 2014, they became engaged and got married, but separated again in 2018 without tying the knot.
According to Senler, Boateng assaulted her while on vacation by throwing a glass candle holder at her. His attorneys have denied this claim. Additionally, the footballer revealed that he has a third child, a son born in 2015.
In addition, Boateng indicated that the boy is named Jermar, a name that incorporates the first letter of his own name with the first letter of his mother’s name. However, it is unclear who the mother is.
Following the 2018 split, Boateng began dating Jamaican model Rebecca Silvera before ditching her for Kasia in October of this year.
His relationship with Kasia began to deteriorate in December last year, when Rebecca posted on Instagram that the Polish model had copied her and manipulated her for her own benefit.
A year later, Boateng and Kasia’s romance imploded – with the Bayern defender accusing her of blackmailing him and his family, and Kasia denouncing him as ‘the devil’ and pledging to speak out once she had recovered.
Her son, Noah, who was born three years ago to a previous partner and is thought to be five years old, survives her. According to a Berlin police spokesman, ‘yesterday around 8.30 p.m. police conducted an investigation in Charlottenburg in connection with the suspicion of suicide.
Upon entering the home, a lifeless individual was discovered. As far as we know, there has been no involvement of third parties. According to MailOnline, Boateng representatives have not yet responded to requests for comment.
Kasia’s representatives, Fab4Media, released the following statement on their Instagram account: “We are deeply shocked and mourn with Kasia’s family.”.
Currently, Boateng is involved in a lawsuit with Sherin Senler – the mother of his twin daughters – over accusations that he assaulted her in 2018.
A small glass candle holder is alleged to have been thrown at her by the footballer while on holiday, an allegation that his lawyers claim has not been proven.
In 2007, Boateng and Senler began dating, but their relationship has been turbulent, resulting in numerous separations amid allegations of repeated infidelity, including with model Gina-Lisa Lohfink. Their breakup in 2011 – the same year that twins Soley and Lamia were born – was so acrimonious that they were said to have communicated through their attorneys only.
In 2013, Boateng and Senler, a former fashion student, rekindled their romance and got engaged; however, they have reportedly split up again following the alleged assault in 2018. During 2018, Boateng revealed that he has a son – named Jermar – who was born three years earlier.
The boy’s name consists of ‘the first letters of my name and of his mother’s name’, but he has not revealed the identity of the mother and has kept the boy largely out of the spotlight. Afterwards, the footballer began dating Jamaican fashion model Rebecca Silvera, although it is unclear when their relationship began.
After dating for a short period of time, Boateng and Kasia were first spotted together in New York in October 2019. In December and on Valentine’s Day of the following year, Kasia confirmed their relationship was genuine by posting follow-up Instagram posts describing Boateng as ‘my love’.
In December of last year, Rebecca accused Kasia of copying and manipulating her in order to steal Boateng from her. He then split from Kasia earlier this month, apologizing to Rebecca and his family and saying it was time to accept responsibility for his actions.
Although Kasia did not disclose who the alleged trysts were with, she subsequently accused Boateng of ‘continuous infidelity’.
An apartment block in Berlin was called to report a suicide at 8.30pm on Tuesday, and police found a dead body there. This is the Berlin apartment block where Kasia’s body was discovered, and the doorbell displayed Boateng’s initials.
