I was just thinking about Boris Becker getting two-and-a-half years in jail for for hiding assets after declaring bankruptcy. He fared much better on tennis courts than in debtors' court.


  1. The Trump school of finance didn't work out? I'm shocked!

    Becker had told the jury his career earnings of $50m (about £38 million) were spent on an expensive divorce from his first wife in 2001, child maintenance payments, and "expensive lifestyle commitments", including his £22,000-a-month rented house in Wimbledon, south-west London.

    The trial also revealed Becker's taste for designer clothes, shopping in Harrods and that he was spending thousands on his children's school fees. He said his income had "reduced dramatically" following his retirement in 1999.

    1. He couldn't give up his lavish lifestyle. Tsk.
