Lena Gercke is officially a single woman, which is unfortunate for her but news that has many of her male admirers smiling. The stunningly beautiful German model/presenter has split from German national team and Juventus football player Sami Khedira after four years together and fans on social media are speculating wildly about the reasons for the breakup.
Interestingly, some entertainment fans believe that part of the problem may have been the changing directions in their careers. Her career is on the upswing as a model who is in-demand in Germany and in the United States. In contrast, it is no secret that her ex-partner had not yet returned to form from a previously suffered injury which had made it difficult for him to regain his place in the starting eleven of Real Madrid.
Another reason being attributed for the split is that her career pursuits meant that there were many occasions in which they would be separated for several weeks at a time and puts a spotlight on the challenges a goal-oriented career woman such as Lena Gercke may encounter.
Sometimes, succesful women have to choose between following their partners or focusing on their careers and it seems as if the winner of the first cycle of Germany's Next Top Model has chosen her modelling and burgeoning tv career over her personal life.
Sources close to the couple have noted that instead of her being the one to want to settle down, get married and have a family it seems that her football star partner Sami Khedira was the one who was pushing for the marriage and kids and she kept delaying both until they realized that she was not ready at this time and does not look like she will be anytime soon.
Lena Gercke, a model who some entertainment and sports fans suspect will be much pursued and desired woman by men because of her new single status and lack of desire to get married or have children in the near future.
