"Deal or No Deal" model Katie Cleary says her husband's suicide over the weekend had nothing to do with photos that surfaced of her hanging with Leo DiCaprio and Adrian Grenier ... but the husband's friends tell a different story.

TMZ broke the story ... Andrew Stern -- who married Cleary in July 2010 -- shot himself in the head Sunday, and law enforcement tells us he was suffering significant stress over marital problems.

Just last month Katie was in Cannes partying with Leo and Adrian ... and reports surfaced that she was involved with Leo, although he denies it.

Now Katie's rep tells us ... the couple split 8 months ago and Stern filed for divorce in April.  The rep says Cleary and Stern discussed the photos and they were a non-issue.

But several of Andrew's friends see it differently, telling us the pics really bothered him.  They say Andrew still loved Katie but filed for divorce because she was humiliating him by globetrotting and hobnobbing with celebs. 

Katie's rep also says Katie and Adrian have been friends for a while, and she had never even met Leo until the night of the photo, where they talked about animal conservation and that's all.

As we reported ... in addition to marital problems, we're told Andrew was stressed out over finances.  Katie's rep and Andrew's friends say he was also struggling with depression.

Sorry about the husband, but damn she's one sexy lady. There's was no way he could have kept her. That's just how it is. It's now time to unleash that beauty for all of us. Truth.

TMZ is in the business of stirring up the pot... Publish stories with no fact and hypotheticals... Stories that are race, sex driven to create spark and work up emotion. They get paid when you click and comment! Shock sells!

Anyone who blames her for his suicide is seriously diluted. It's sad, but it is zero percent her fault. Any man who commits suicide over a woman had previous issues. Way to dig TMZ, but all you dug up was dog crap.

You need to quit villianizing her and/or any of the people in his life who are mourning now. The only villian here if you just NEED to place blame is Mental Illness.
Many, many people get publicly humiliated during their lives (and more than just once), many have relationship problems and get their heart trampled over, many lose their jobs and end up with nothing or lose custody of their children cause they can't pay for them - people experience temendous pain. Most of these people can remain with some hope and do not take their life. I'm not saying that the ongoing burden of life's pain is irrelavant to our emotional health, but when someone commits suicide there really is something else going on and it's neurobiological - it's mental illness.
Please do not villianize the victim here of mental illness or his spouse. It's hurtful. His friend's feelings right now are raw and they need answers, that's all.

How would she know what was truly bothering him? If she did know he wouldn't of shot himself. But go ahead- tell yourself whatever it is that relieves you from having any itty-bitty tiny amount of responsibility for driving this guy to suicide.

Please,oh my god,oh my god,oh my god....whatever you do;don't blame the famous rich movie dude. He never boned anyones insecure wife. He asks to see marriage certificates and is awesome in every way. The guy is dead and that seems to mean nothing. It's all about $$$ and ad placement.
