Boris Becker’s estranged wife Lilly looks chic in Breton stripes and a white suit as she attends Wimbledon day five with his son Elias… two months after fallen tennis star was jailed
Boris Becker was jailed two months ago, after he was found guilty of hiding £2.5million to avoid paying his debts.
And on Friday, his estranged with Lilly Becker, 45, looked chic in Breton stripes and a white suit as she and his son Elias Balthasar, 22, attended Wimbledon day five of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
The model, 45, put in a polished appearance in the crisp white trouser suit as she found her seats on centre court with her dapper step-son by her side.

Lilly opted for a statement striped top, which she teamed with a tailored suit, which boasted gold contrast buttons.
The raven haired beauty scraped her tresses back into a sleek ponytail and shielded her eyes with a mottled pair of cat-eye shades.
Boris’ son Elias – whom he shares with ex-wife Barbara, 55, looked equally stylish in a green check blazer teamed with a white shirt and smart navy trousers.

Lilly recently admitted she ‘completely broke down’ when her estranged husband Boris was jailed for bankruptcy fraud in April.
In May, the brunette beauty revealed that she is still married to the tennis star and refuses to divorce him – four years after reports the pair had split.
The Dutch model said she ‘completely broke down’ as Boris was sentenced and ‘couldn’t believe’ what she was hearing, having been ‘convinced’ he would get a lighter sentence.
‘I had to keep it together and I don’t know how I did it,’ she said.

She also told TalkTV’s Piers Morgan Uncensored that she is still married to Boris, despite reports indicating the couple had divorced in May 2018.
‘I’m very much still his wife,’ Lilly said. ‘Estranged wife as that may be but we’re still very much married and have been since we went our separate ways.
‘It was from the beginning intense and a complete, true love story. Everyone who knows us knows this. It’s not that I don’t want to get a divorce. We should handle our business at the right time.’
When asked whether she still loves Boris, she replied: ‘Of course I do.’
She also revealed that Boris is doing ‘okay’ in prison and is ‘as good as he can be’, but adding: ‘It’s not a five star hotel is it?’
Boris arrived at Southwark Crown Court on April 29 with current partner and political risk analyst Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro, who he started dating in 2020.

Lilly revealed she had told their son Amadeus, 12, that ‘papa didn’t listen to the law and he’s on the naughty step’, but had not spoken to him about the court proceedings.
She added: ‘I had no chance but to break my heart or his heart last Sunday and I don’t wish this upon anybody. It was the hardest thing I had to do with a 12-year-old.
‘He just couldn’t grasp it. He still can’t. It breaks my heart but it just made me into ”tiger mumma”.’
Lilly went on: ‘I have just told a 12-year-old that his father is in jail and the saddest part was I couldn’t break it down because these kids are now going on YouTube and the internet. The internet is cruel.’
Judge Deborah Taylor gave the six-time Grand Slam champion a 30-month sentence, of which he will serve half, for hiding £2.5million of assets and loans to avoid paying his debts.
The three-time Wimbledon champion was declared bankrupt on June 21, 2017, owing creditors almost £50million, over an unpaid loan of more than £3million on his estate in Majorca, Spain.
The former BBC commentator transferred almost 427,000 euros (around £390,000) from his business account to others, including to Ms Becker and his other ex-wife Barbara Feltus.
Becker, who was handed a two-year suspended sentence for tax evasion and attempted tax evasion worth 1.7million euro (around £1.4million) in Germany in 2002, was found guilty last month of four offences under the Insolvency Act between June 21 and October 3, 2017.
