Boris Becker’s estranged wife says he ‘had it all and screwed it all up’

BORIS Becker’s estranged wife has told how her imprisoned husband “had everything and screwed it up”.

Lilly Becker, 45, said telling her son his father was in prison was the “worst thing she’s had to do,” adding, “It’s always the women who have to clean up the mess.”

Former world No. 1 tennis player Boris, 54, is serving a 30-month sentence at Wandsworth Prison in south London after hiding £2.5million in assets and loans when he went bankrupt in 2017.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Dutch model and TV presenter Lilly said she didn’t tell son Amadeus, 12, about his trial at Southwark Crown Court last month because she never expected him to be jailed.

She called a friend who teaches a daycare center to help him in his playroom, adding: “It was one of the worst things I’ve ever had to do.

“I will never forget to look into his blue eyes. He just couldn’t handle it.”

She said they left him alone, but he came down 20 minutes later, adding: “I know he googled but I can’t stop him can I?

“He needs answers. He deserves answers.

“I just have to answer as best I can, but no, it’s not fair that I’m in this position.”

In an outburst about Boris, whom she married in 2009, Lilly also said: “It’s really not fair to Amadeus.

“He had to deal with our slip-up for years, which was disgusting, and he finally understood that mum and dad weren’t dating. Now this.”

She added: “I feel a little sorry for him [Boris] in some ways. He had everything – all the money, the women, the fame.

“He had it all and he screwed it up.”

And she joked that she gets by with “cleaning like a maniac.”

But she insisted he’ll be “fine” and that “everyone will love him in there because he charms everyone.”

Earlier this month, we told how Boris moaned about the bad food in his prison after he was served corned beef as his first meal behind bars.

Lags also told him to dye his hair to remain inconspicuous in prison.

And last week we exclusively revealed that he plans to write a book about his fall from grace. Boris Becker’s estranged wife says he ‘had it all and screwed it all up’
