Boris Becker’s ex-wife Lilly Becker has given an update on the tennis icon after he was jailed last Friday. The three-time Wimbledon champion was sentenced to two-and-a-half years behind bars after being found guilty of several offences under the Insolvency Act relating to his bankruptcy in 2017.
“I have spoken to Lilian [his girlfriend] and he’s doing okay,” Ms Becker revealed to Piers Morgan on his new Uncensored show. “It’s not a five-star hotel is it. He can only be as good as you can be in where he is.
“I think it’s personal for all of us. We all pulled together – his ex-wife, the kids, his current girlfriend Lilian. The first thing we did was reach out to each other. It’s hard because it’s public, it’s everywhere. It’s hard because everybody has an opinion about it – rightly so.
