Boris Becker is freed after serving less than half his sentence

After being sensationally released from prison today, Boris Becker is reportedly returning home to spend Christmas in Germany.

After spending just eight months of his two-and-a-half year sentence for concealing millions when he went bankrupt, the disgraced former Wimbledon champion was freed.

It is said to be a trip back to his birthplace of Leimen, where his mother Elvira, who is 87, resides, for a tearful reunion with his loved ones.

Becker, 55, was reportedly transported from Oxfordshire’s HMP Huntercombe, where foreign prisoners are imprisoned before being deported, with the assistance of Home Office officers.

He was released early as part of a fast-track program designed to relieve strain on Britain’s overcrowded prison system by sending convicts home before their scheduled release date.

After spending months in a jail cell among tough criminals who were banged up, the German tennis star slid easily back into a lifestyle he is more used to as soon as he tasted freedom.

Three-time Wimbledon champion Becker is said to be flying home on a high-end private plane that he purchased.

A Munich-based TV station has reportedly picked up the 55-year-old for an interview on his harrowing fall from glory.

Boris is still one of Germany’s most well-known athletes, and his initial interview is highly sought-after.

There will be a lot of interest in his release, and the private flight assures that no other media members see him, the insider said.

As part of their arrangement for the interview, the TV firm will pay for the plane.

In a video recording that was made public last week, Becker sobbed openly about the mental pain he experienced before being condemned.

The 55-year-old tennis pro, who won six grand slams and Wimbledon at the age of 17, claimed to have reached his “lowest” earlier this year while waiting to be sentenced.

He was sentenced to almost eight months in jail after being found guilty in April of concealing loans and assets totaling £2.5 million in order to avoid paying his obligations.

The creators of an unidentified forthcoming documentary have published a videotape showing Becker being questioned prior to the sentence.

I’ve struck my (rock) bottom, I don’t know what to make of it, he remarked, looking distraught.

“I (will) accept (my punishment); I won’t hide or flee.” I’ll take whatever punishment is handed out to me.

It’s Wednesday afternoon, and I’ll find out the rest of my life on Friday.

The three-time Wimbledon winner and former world number one’s tennis career from the start as well as his “tumultuous” personal life are both explored in the two-part documentary, according to Apple TV+.

According to the release program, inmates who agree to leave the UK may have up to 135 days of their sentence reduced and avoid serving any more time behind bars in their native country.

Despite residing in London for more than ten years, Becker chose not to seek for British citizenship, making him qualified for the Home Office program.

Although England has been his home for a very long time, we are happy for Boris that he may be eligible for an early release and be able to fly to Germany, said Becker’s former spokesperson last month. Being with his family for Christmas will undoubtedly mean a great deal to him and his family.

Leimen, which is five kilometers from the historic, attractive city of Heidelberg, is said to be his intended destination when he leaves.

Elvira continues to reside in a granny flat in Becker’s £1.8 million house there, a lavish seven-bedroom mansion with 8,880 square feet of space.

The UK insolvency administrator obliged him to put the property on the market in 2020 in an effort to pay off his obligations.

However, potential purchasers were informed that if they purchased the home, they would have to let his mother to remain there until she passed away. She had to agree to “lifelong residence” as a condition of the transaction.

After a few weeks, the house was pulled off the market, giving Becker a place to live as he settles in a nation he hasn’t called home in over ten years.

The large 8,000 square foot home, constructed in 1990, has “unrestricted views of the Rhine Valley” and includes a sun terrace, sauna, and whirlpool.

After being declared bankrupt for an outstanding $3 million debt, Becker was found guilty of concealing £2.5 million in assets, including the Leimen mansion, £600,000 in shares, and a £700,000 loan. Becker was sentenced to prison earlier this year.

Becker’s boyfriend Lilian De Carvalho and his boys have visited him while he is being kept in custody.

Although the renowned tennis star’s financial struggles have been well-documented, it has been claimed in Germany that his separated wife Lilly, 46, also has financial difficulties.

According to reports, a “close friend” who says she provided her the money is suing her for £170,000.

According to the German tabloid Bild, Pierre Uebelhack, 47, filed a lawsuit against Lilly a few days ago in a court in Munich.

The TV producer Mr. Uebelhack and Mrs. Becker were said to have been “close” between 2017 and the time she told Hello magazine she would “love to be in love” once again last year. Thorsten Weck, a sports manager and former football player, is said to be her current boyfriend.

While on vacation in Ibiza in August, the couple was seen cuddling close to one another on a boat.

The mother of his two kids, Noah and Elias, his first wife Barbara, resides in Miami, Florida.
