Convicted tennis legend Boris Becker has given German media a £435,000 television interview, sparking controversy over his eight-month imprisonment.
Jailbird Boris Becker plans to fund his new life in Germany by pouring his huge income from television appearances and book deals into a company founded by his girlfriend.
He is believed to return to his hometown of Leimen (top left), where his 87-year-old mother, Elvira, lives for an emotional reunion with loved ones.
An insider said: The aim is to distribute it to the global market abroad, which is of great interest.
“He was so busy he didn’t even have time to see his mother, but they spoke on the phone. The final edits were made a few hours before the Tuesday night broadcast, after which the live TV debate was held. It is done.
Becker was released from HMP Hunterscombe in Oxfordshire last week and was flown by the television station by private jet from Bigginhill airfield in Kent to its Munich headquarters to record an interview.
Interviewer Stephen Gatchen saw the former world number one in prison three times while serving an eight-month sentence, first at Category B HMP Wandsworth and then at lower Category C Hunterscom. rice field.
Before the show he said: ‘When I visited him in prison, the very slim Boris Becker greeted me with a smile on his face. He seemed to have a lot of time to think.
“And he was very emotional, especially the moment he talked about life in Wandsworth No. 1. His description of his first days at Wandsworth Prison.
“Those imprisoned there are not just those who have committed financial crimes, but also those who have committed sex offenders, murderers, and large-scale robberies.
“Boris Becker told me that he was very afraid that he would eventually be put in a group cell. Locked in solitary confinement overtime.
“He didn’t even take a shower during this time because he didn’t know how or where to actually shower in prison. After the first four days in solitary confinement, his only goal was to get outside. It was to get out and work.
“He just wanted some fresh air. He said he would have done anything for it. He didn’t enjoy any celebrity bonuses while in custody.”
Becker, 55, was believed to have been accompanied by Home Office officials when he was kicked out of HMP Huntercombe in Oxfordshire (pictured).
The arrangement will allow Becker, 55, to legally cling to his property and keep it away from his multi-million dollar creditors after his early release from prison in the UK last week.
Becker, who has lived in the UK since 2012, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison by Southwark criminal court in April after being found guilty of four bankruptcy charges related to his bankruptcy.
A jury determined that he had hidden assets and loans worth £2.5m to avoid paying debts to his creditors.
He was released after just eight months under a special ruling allowing non-British citizens to be sent back to their home countries to ease the pressure on prisons.
Regarding the first meeting, Steven added:
“And it was very important to him to be clear that he wasn’t enjoying the celebrity bonuses in prison. I think it made me reflect deeply.
Boris Becker has been in the limelight since he was 17. And suddenly he was confined and unable to go out, he could only visit twice a month and was forced to follow a strict prison system.
“In any case, I got the impression that this experience really blew him away. When we met in prison, I felt like someone was sitting in front of me looking for new beginnings.” .
“Boris Becker has been under tremendous pressure over the past few weeks. He had doubts that he would be released, but it was not certain.
“And this feeling, this hope, almost broke him,” he said. He has always tried to act in a way that avoids attracting negative attention.
But on the other hand, he has become arrogant and has forbidden himself to think too much about freedom, lest he risk being fired. I am very pleased to have corrected many things.
MailOnline also said he gave his clothes, shoes and books to fellow inmates as he rushed to escape prison, with only a photo of his children with partner Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro. We can exclusively disclose that
A source said, “Life in prison really changed Boris. He realizes how lucky he is and how lucky his life is compared to some of the others in prison with him.” He wants to make amends and start his life over.
Under the terms of his release, Becker will not be allowed to return to Britain for ten years. That means his career as a commentator for the BBC is over and he is considering his TV role abroad in the German media.
He has not been spotted since returning to Germany and is believed to be staying at a luxury hotel near Munich while final arrangements are being made for a television interview.
He didn’t even have time to visit his elderly mother, Elvira, 87, at her parents’ home in Leimen, near Stuttgart, but she told friends she was “excited to meet him”. .
She has never stepped out of her house, which was built in 1990 with the proceeds of her 1985, 1986 and 1989 Wimbledon wins, and has panoramic views of Leimen.
A neighbor told MailOnline after stopping by to pick up a stack of newspapers. She is looking forward to meeting her son. She has not met him yet, but she specially styled her hair.
“They have spoken on the phone many times since he was released and will be spending Christmas with Boris.”
Becker made tennis history by winning Wimbledon in 1985 at the age of 17 and winning five more Grand Slam titles over the next 11 years.
