The court found the six-time Grand Slam champion guilty of transferring money to his ex-wife Barbara and estranged wife Sharley after the 2017 bankruptcy. Boris Becker will serve half of the term after being convicted at Southwark Crown Court in London because of transferring such massive amounts from his business account. Meanwhile, he even failed to show proof of a property in Germany and also concealed 825,000 euros of debt and shares in a tech firm.
The 54-year-old was even exonerated this month of extra 20 charges. These included counts of failing to hand over memorabilia that he won during his stint as a tennis player. He said his jurors that did not know about any of his trophies. Those memorabilia also included 2 of his 3 Wimbledon men’s singles trophies.
