NEW YORK — The ex-Playboy model who leapt to her death from her Manhattan hotel penthouse suite pushed her 7-year-old son out of the 25th-floor window before taking the plunge herself, police said Monday.

The death of Stephanie Adams was ruled a suicide, the city medical examiner’s office said. The death of her son Vincent was ruled a homicide.

An autopsy revealed that both Adams, 46, and her child died Thursday from multiple blunt impact injuries.

The former Miss November 1992 was in the middle of a messy divorce from her estranged husband Dr. Charles Nicolai, the owner of Wall Street Chiropractic & Wellness.

Adams had recently asked a judge to allow her to take Vincent to Spain but was denied.

Police said there was no suicide note in her room at the Gotham Hotel on East 46th Street.
