Boris Becker’s girlfriend, Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro, does everything to make his time in prison easier for him – while another is playing in the foreground.

Visitors to Wandsworth Prison have a strict dress code: no plunging necklines, no short skirts or shorts, no ripped jeans. Of course, Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro, 33, had informed himself in advance and therefore came to the prison very casually in sports trousers and a denim jacket to visit her partner Boris Becker, 54. It’s certainly no coincidence that she’s wearing a cap and shoulder bag from Puma, Boris’ outfitter. Their unmistakable message is: We are a team and stick together.

Lilian seems surprisingly relaxed on her first visit

On April 29, 2022, the ex-tennis star was sentenced to prison and has since lived in a cell in England’s second largest prison. Lilian is the first person to visit him there after almost a week in prison. The girlfriend of the three-time Wimbledon winner looks confident and relaxed when she arrives, even smiling every now and then. A few days earlier, she was seen sadly taking a walk in London. So how is she really?

Boris Becker’s lawyer: “She is doing according to the circumstances”

Boris Becker’s German media lawyer Christian-Oliver Moser says to GALA: “She is doing according to the circumstances.” The initial shock after her partner’s conviction seems to have been overcome. Now is the time to be strong and look ahead. Lilian not only benefits from the fact that she comes from a family of politicians and, like her father – 2014 presidential candidate in the African island state of São Tomé and Príncipe – is a fighter, but also from her experience as a risk analyst. That is why she deliberately refrains from expressing herself publicly.

The behavior of Boris’ wife Lilly Becker, 45, must be all the more irritating for her. She has already emphasized several times how close the relationship between Boris’ wives is and how much everyone sticks together in this situation. “Lilly Becker gives the impression that she is the spokeswoman for the family. But she is not,” explains Becker’s lawyer. And it becomes even clearer: “The person who has been in complex divorce proceedings with my client for years and who, until recently, had no serious contact with the Becker family. A little restraint would be appropriate here.”

Clear announcement in the direction of Lilly Becker

How to behave properly – Lilian knows it. “My client’s new girlfriend is old enough to speak for herself when it’s appropriate,” Moser said. “She doesn’t need Lilly Becker for that.” Clear announcement.

Lilian has adapted to the new situation and deals with it very pragmatically. In the large sports bag she probably had a few books and fresh laundry, relatives are not allowed to bring more. But in the visitor’s room she bought cola, coffee and chocolate. She knows: Especially for a person in prison, such small things are more important than big words.
