'Deal/No Deal' Model

Husband Kills Himself

After Rumors She Hooked Up With DiCaprio, Grenier

EXCLUSIVE

0624_katie-cleary-and-andrew-stern_gettyThe husband of "Deal Or No Deal" suitcase model Katie Cleary shot himself to death ... just weeks after she was photographed getting cozy with Leo DiCaprio and Adrian Grenier.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Andrew Stern shot himself in the head Sunday while he was at a shooting range in the San Fernando Valley.  

The 40-year-old businessman was married to Katie ... who was also a contestant on "America's Next Top Model."  Katie was photographed in Cannes last month with Leo and the two seemed tight. There are also photos of Katie in Cannes with  "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier.

0624_katie_cleary_in_cannes_akm_gsi_2We're told law enforcement interviewed various people after the suicide, including Katie, and they were told -- among other things -- he was suffering significant stress over marital problems. 

Our sources say Katie told law enforcement she and Andrew -- who appeared on "Millionaire Matchmaker" before he got together with Cleary -- were in the process of getting divorced.

A source close to Leo tells us Katie and the actor never hooked up and he left the club with his GF Toni Garrn.

In addition to marital problems, law enforcement says Andrew had a history of depression and had financial issues.

That's really sad. Why didn't she divorce him if she wanted to hoe around? Granted, she didn't MAKE him commit suicide, but she definitely appears to have played some really awful games that were certainly a factor in what happened. The good news is that now she can go f*** everyone and have no one to answer to...stay classy.

Katie was emotionally abusive to Drew. He loved her very much, and she was a rotten witch. She spewed anti-semitic remarks at him. Told him he was going to hell for being a jew. All kinds of terrible things. This was much more than just her possibly being a slut. She is a black widow and a gold digger. Don't give her any more attention than what you are giving her now. It's what she wants.
