The footballer is again in the spotlight after the authorities found new information about a possible physical assault.
Just two weeks ago, the sad news of the death of Jérôme Boateng’s ex-partner, the top model Kasia Lenhart, was found dead in her Berlin apartment at the age of 25.
The causes of his death are not yet known, as the police found no evidence of third-party negligence. However, what is known is that the Prosecutor’s Office has resumed an old preliminary investigation against the footballer.
The German newspaper Bild has revealed that the Bayern Munich player has again been investigated on suspicion of intentional bodily harm “to the detriment of the injury to Kasia L.” . Another medium, Zeit, has added that the process began on December 20, 2019, but was temporarily suspended. However, a few days after Kasia’s death, it has been resumed due to new findings.
Suspect of having assaulted his ex-partner
“The process was resumed on February 10, 2021 because we received new information in the course of the investigation into the death in Berlin , which could give indications of a possible continuation of the process. The investigations have not yet concluded,” explained the Prosecutor General, Anne Leiding.
The court proceeding was suspended because the injured party, Kasia Lenhart, did not want to provide further information, and because they had to await the outcome of another court proceeding.
In addition, this is not the first accusation that Jérôme Boateng has received, but he was also accused of having assaulted his ex-fiancee , Sherin Senler , for which he faced 5 years in prison.
The footballer has not yet commented on the death of his ex-partner , whom he left a few days before the sad outcome occurred. Last weekend he played a Bundesliga game with Bayern for the first time, accompanied by a black armband on his shirt.
