TennisFormer tennis player Boris Becker was killed at the end of April He was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison, Half of it must be served effectively. The former tennis star is said to have stashed around three million pounds sterling after declaring bankruptcy. The first weeks he spent in a London prison did not go well with the German. If last week’s food wasn’t good for him, Baker was already starting to get on the nerves of his fellow prison mates and prison staff in his second week.
Why is Baker in prison? Watch it in this video:
In 2017, Boris Becker was unable to repay a loan of more than three million pounds (3.5 million euros) to a private bank and an investor, and therefore was declared bankrupt. However, the appointed guardian was skillfully deceived to help pay off his debts. At least one judge in a London court has found him guilty of four of 24 offenses alleged under British bankruptcy law.
And Baker isn’t really having a good time in prison. The German grumbles all day about all sorts of things, much to the chagrin of his fellow prisoners. Because of his stature, Baker enjoys some perks. For example, he is allowed to make more phone calls with his cell door open during the day. The latter because the former tennis player would suffer from claustrophobia.
However, not all warders are fully convinced of this, and the door to Baker’s cell is regularly closed. But Baker has already found something to do with that. He would hit the emergency button every now and then to make sure his cell door stayed open for the money. Baker has already received a warning from the warden with a message that he is not here in a hotel room.
The fact that Becker regularly releases emergency calls may have another reason. The German recently got a cellmate. On their first weekend together, he couldn’t get over his new partner for a second. And Boris will be very fond of his privacy.
Stinky dungeon and terrible food
Also last week, Becker had complained about the stench in his cell and was already annoyed by the constant noise around him. Baker was also surprised by the cleanliness and limited living space in his cell. But what bothers him the most is the quality of the food.
On Becker’s first night in prison, there was “canned beef” (canned beef) on the menu, which the Germans didn’t immediately like. Makes sense even if you’re used to eating fillet bourre and lobster every day. The portions are also “ridiculously small,” according to Baker. Becker also has to stick to a budget of just £10 a week. He uses the money to buy cookies, bananas and chocolates in the prison cafeteria in order to eat something delicious.
