Boris Becker’s estranged wife has continued her attack on the tennis legend’s new girlfriend, telling Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro her son is “out of bounds”.

Lilly Becker took aim at Monteiro recently after photos emerged of her and Becker relaxing on the beach in Ibiza with his son Amadeus.

Lilly was seething over photos of Monteiro applying sunscreen to Amadeus, and she’s lashed out at Monteiro once again.

“There are rules,” Lilly told The Daily Mail. “They aren’t written down, but there are woman-to-woman rules, a kind of code of conduct about these things.

“When I was Boris’s new girlfriend, I adhered to them. When I was on holiday for the first time with his children from his first marriage, I called his ex-wife, Barbara, beforehand. You just do.

“She didn’t do that. Worse, she ignored me when I tried to make contact - and I was polite, too. I wished her a good holiday. Yet next thing I knew she was in all the papers putting sunscreen on my son.

“I had asked her not to mother my child. So yes, I am furious. My son is out of bounds. Hands off him.”

Lilly said Monteiro shouldn’t be taking her role as Amadeus’ parent.

“What bothers me is that this is the second woman in six months to go on holiday with my son — in a global pandemic,” she said.

“This is not normal. It certainly isn’t normal that she’d be putting suncream on him. That’s a parenting job. And he didn’t need her doing it.”

Lilly Becker’s angry Instagram message to Menteiro

Earlier this month Lilly penned an angry message to Menteiro in a since-delated Instagram post.

“Let me put it his way so you understand: during the period of #corona!” she wrote.

“You're the 2nd girl within 7months to make breakfast - pizza- pancakes for my son!

“No girl - as a mother please respect my son and go take pics with @borisbeckerofficial in your cute bikini and your fabulous body but I beg you step away from my son!

“B won't tell you! But I will otherwise you won't get the message! Have a fab holiday - without touching my kid! He's off limits! Period!!”

Boris and Lilly Becker are said to be close to finalising their divorce after they separated in 2018 after nine years of marriage.

As well as Amadeus they have 20-year-old son Elias together.

Becker also has a son (Noah, 26) with ex Barbara, and daughter (Anna Ermakova, 20) with Angela Ermakova.

The 52-year-old is a six-time grand slam champion, including his remarkable triumph at Wimbledon in 1985 as a 17-year-old.

It made him the youngest Wimbledon singles champion in tennis history.

Becker split with World No.1 Novak Djokovic in 2016 following three successful years as his coach - the Serb winning six of his 17 grand slam titles with Becker.

In 2017 he was declared bankrupt by a court in London for failing to pay a “substantial” long-standing debt.
