THIS IS A BIG STORY
Tim Schmidt's ex-girlfriend was reportedly looking to make his death "as pleasant as possible" by using her assets against him and he claims it was because the 33-year-old woman was jealous of his successful career, a German court has heard.
He is quoted by the Daily Mail as telling the German court: "The incident happened in May – we were having sex.
"She was sitting on me naked and I was kissing her breasts. Suddenly she grabbed my head and pushed between her breasts with all of her force.
"I couldn't breathe any more, I must have turned blue. I couldn't tear myself free and I thought I was going to die."
The woman has denied the charge of "attempted manslaughter with a weapon".
