Model-turned-TV personality Katie Clearly is in mourning following her businessman husband's death on Sunday.

Andrew Stern reportedly shot himself in the head while at a gun range in San Fernando Valley, California, according to TMZ.com.

The 40-year-old, who had a history of depression issues, was said to have been suffering from stress due to marital problems.

A friend of Clearly's has issued a statement about Stern's death.

"On Sunday, June 22, Andrew Stern, husband of Katie Cleary, committed suicide at a shooting range in the San Fernando Valley. Andrew and Katie have been in the midst of a very amicable separation (they had filed for divorce) and had remained on excellent terms. This is devastating news for us but we have been aware of Andrew's longtime struggle with depression."

Cleary was a former America's Next Top Model contestant who appears as a model presenter on U.S. game show Deal Or No Deal.
