“Yesterday (Tuesday) at around 8:30 pm there was a police operation in Charlottenburg on suspicion of suicide,” Berlin police said in a statement to Bild. “There are no indications of third-party negligence.”
Lenhardt’s last post on her Instagram page was related to her breakup with the German football star. She wrote: “Now is where you draw the line. Enough.”
