After Jerome Boateng was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend recently, his brother, Ghanaian star Kevin-Prince Boateng, has now publicly slammed the Olympique Lyon defender.
According to Marca, Jerome Boateng recently appeared in a Munich court for a domestic violence incident that took place in 2018 while he was on holiday with his ex-girlfriend in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Germany stalwart was found guilty and fined €1.8 million (R29 million) for his actions, although he managed to escape a jail sentence.
His brother Kevin-Prince has now insisted he wants nothing to do with the former Bayern Munich defender.
"I've already distanced myself from Jerome [Boateng] for a long time," he told Bild.
"I appreciate and respect German law. I despise violence against women.
"I don't identify with the actions of my brother and therefore I have nothing to do with him anymore."
Kevin-Prince, who currently plays for Hertha Berlin, has reportedly not spoken to Jerome for a while now.
"Kevin cut ties with Jerome months ago, but this has remained silent until now," a source told Bild.
"Jerome was always seen as the good and sweet brother, whilst Kevin was seen as a bad boy. However, it is the opposite."
