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."
