They seemed to be predestined for each other: Sami Khedira and Lena Gercke had been a happy couple since 2011, but in 2015 their relationship fell apart.
Khedira and his gorgeous blonde with her almost perfect smile for years were regarded as ‘Germany’s Beckhams’. He as a top footballer, who made his mark with Real Madrid, Juventus and the German national team, she as a top model and TV-star. Lena Gercke won the first edition of Germany’s Next Top Model in 2006, after which her career had a lightning start.
In 2012the couple got engaged. Sami Khedira and Lena Gercke seemed madly in love and dominated the pages of Bild and other tabloid newspapers for years. Year after year they shone by each other’s sides. There was no hint of trouble for the busy model and the midfielder, until May 2015. According to tabloid Bild their diverging plans for the future were the cause of the breakup. Khedira, by now transferred from Real Madrid to Juventus, wanted to have a family with Lena, but the model was not yet ready for a temporary pause in her own career.. After all he wants to follow in the footsteps of her role model Heidi Klum and there is no room for pregnancy and changing diapers. Together they announced to be separating as good friends.
Until 2009 Lena Gercke was in a relationship with Briton Jay Khan. ,,She always wants to be the best”, father Uwe Gercke said in an interview. ,,I regret Lena and Sami having broken up, he was the ideal son-in-law and we got along well.”
Early 2016 Lena however already has a new boyfriend: Kilian Müller-Wohlfahrt is the new man by her side. He is a doctor and son of Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt, doctor of the German national team. Unfortunately for Sami Khedira there hasn’t yet been a new love, even though there is said to have been a fling with Sylvie Meis, the ex-girlfriend of Dutch Rafael van der Vaart.
