In a short Press release said the international: “A few weeks ago, Lena Gercke and I decided to go our separate ways. The decision was not easy for any of us and we ask you to understand that no further details will be shared with the public. “
The two got together four years ago and in 2012 the footballer proposed to the winner of Germany’s 2006 Next Top Model. But there was never a wedding – the two kept putting them off, supposedly they were too busy and couldn’t find time for it.
