Pay us Becker’s fees – lawyers
LAWYERS dealing with Boris Becker’s debt have told his employers not to pay him – and send the salary directly to them instead.
The bankrupt tennis star, pictured, appears on BBC Wimbledon coverage, and has a Eurosport contract.
He was declared insolvent in London in June. Now lawyers Smith & Williamson have reportedly written to all TV channels which employ him saying his fees must be given straight to administrators.
Simon Seddon, from the company, told Germany’s Bild newspaper: ‘We try to satisfy the creditors. But we cannot say whom we are approaching in detail.’
Another German newspaper said anyone who pays the 49-year-old directly runs risk of paying twice.
The three-times Wimbledon champion is believed to owe some £54million to creditors. He has been told not to sell his valuable tennis trophies or property.
