'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.

Men need to grow a pair, if a woman cheats on you it's because you are not doing something right or she just wanted a different piece of ass. Either way no woman is worth killing yourself over

She was divorcing him, but I'll bet she cashes in a life insurance policy if he had one.

Depression is nothing to sneeze at. Especially severe clinical depression. R.I.P Andrew.

I worked for Andrew last year for a few months at one of his businesses as an independent contractor . He seemed like a really nice guy. He was always friendly. I am still shocked that this happened.

I'm surprised he didn't take her with him. Murder-suicides are how these things usually play out. She's lucky.

I'm Shocked. All of you people trashing her. She stated she was in the process if a divorce. Which tells me they were probably separated, and she is free to do whatever and whoever she pleases. And I'm sure none of you girls have gone out to lunch or dinner with a guy as friends or perhaps more and then gone out dancing with your girlfriends. Heck I'd be willing to bet if we pull security feed form the bars we'd see more then one of you dancing with more then one guy in one night too. Probably even doing more then dancing.... He had a history of depression and no one forces you to kill yourself. It's a selfish action and decision you make on your own. You can't blame her for his decision to take his own life.
