At the time Dutch model Lily, 41, was at looking after the couple’s eight-year-old son Amadeus while Boris commentated at Wimbledon, according to German newspaper Bild.

A friend told the Daily Mail that Boris and Lily’s relationship broke down because of his “negativity”.

They said: “He has become morose and a bit of an old man. It was “night and day” compared to what he was like when Lilly met him, and she wanted out.

“As for that night when the police were called — she is embarrassed about whatever happened at the house and won’t talk about it.”

The clash goes against the previous claim by Becker’s lawyers that the couple’s split was “amicable”.

The Met Police confirmed officers visited the home on Wednesday July 11 but said no one was arrested.

While the German tennis legend battles marital woe he also faces a tumultuous financial future.

Becker was ruled unable to pay a debt to bankers Arbuthnot Latham & Co during a High Court hearing in London in June 2017.

His lawyers pleaded with a Bankruptcy Court registrar for “a last chance” to pay back the long-standing debt.

They argued Becker would be able to pay off the debt by remortgaging his holiday home in Majorca to raise £5.26million.

But registrar Christine Derrett claimed there was a lack of credible evidence that the debt would be paid off in the near future.

She said: “One has the impression of a man with his head in the sand.”

Later reports claimed the tennis star could owe as much as £54m.

He stunned the world in 1985 when he became the youngest player to win Wimbledon at 17 and is it believed he went on to earn up to £160m during a glittering career.

However, in effort to avoid shelling out the vast sum, the former world tennis number one has claimed diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings – citing his role as sports attache to the Central African Republic.
