Boris Becker’s ex-wife Lilly spoke emotionally about the prison sentence against the former tennis star on British TV on Tuesday night.
In the interview, she wanted to show that her ex-husband had a lot of strong women in his life who supported him, says Lilly Becker on the program “Piers Morgan Uncensored”. “‘Let’s get together and protect this guy,'” she told them. “The humiliation was enough for him.”
This refers to Boris’ ex-wife, Barbara, and his current partner, Lilian. Lilly Becker reports that she phoned them both after the verdict was announced. She and the ex-tennis star dated for nine years after they married in 2009. From the relationship son Amadeus emerged.
Incomprehensible imprisonment for Amadeus
Telling her 12-year-old son that his father should go to jail was “the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do” for Lilly Becker. He couldn’t understand it – and still can’t, the model says. “It breaks my heart, but it made me a mother lion.”
After the verdict was announced last Friday, Lilly Becker managed to hide the truth from her son for a while. The following Monday, however, Amadeus found out about his father’s prison sentence. “I couldn’t help it, because kids are going online, on YouTube,” says Lilly Becker.
Amadeus is looking forward to visiting his father in prison, she says. “He has a great environment around him that supports him. I told him we all make mistakes,” reports Lilly Becker.
She herself plans to visit her ex-husband next weekend. She learned from her life partner Lilian that Boris is fine given the circumstances. In order to get through the difficult period in prison, Lilly Becker advises him: “The best way he can choose now is to stay mentally strong and focused.”
Last Friday, a London court sentenced Boris Becker to two and a half years in prison for various crimes of bankruptcy. The tennis legend will indeed have to sell half of it. In Germany, the subject is now controversial, in particular Lilly Becker, the 54-year-old ex, who spoke. In an interview with RTL, she said their 12-year-old son Amadeus didn’t know anything about the latest developments. The situation is also very difficult for the family.
