Schnabel was apparently one of the 70,000 revellers who descended on Black Rock City, Nevada, this year for the annual bash.

But he was arrested on September 3 and charged with distribution and manufacture of a controlled substance, it was reported.

The art dealer is said to have pleaded not guilty, but could face up to five years behind bars if convicted.

Schnabel and Klum announced their split just days ago after dating since 2014.

The 44-year-old model told People on Monday: “I believe that it is important to take time to pause and reflect.”

It is not clear whether Schnabel’s arrest was related to their decision to part ways.

But the couple had not been seen together since August.

Drug arrests are not uncommon at Burning Man where the majority of the 46 people nabbed by cops last year were for narcotics, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.

The yearly festival sees tens of thousands of people gather for at least a week of mayhem.

Revellers from all walks of life — from surreal artists and far-out families to high-flying CEOs and tech titans — head to the sands for a party like no other.

In the past, electric car pioneer Elon Musk, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Google’s Larry Page and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook joined the rebellious souls at Burning Man.

From obscure sculptures and wacky outfits to the ever-popular Orgy Dome – Burning Man seems to get more insane every year.

Last year’s festival hosted over 70,000 “burners” including 3,000 rich enough to fly in to its unregulated Black Rock City Airport.

And in the past there’s been a tent for mass lesbian romps, a human petting zoo and first-timers get hugged by a stark naked welcoming committee.
