Is this really Boris Becker's life or an episode of Gossip Girl?
The 6-time Grand Slammer reportedly told a live audience during an appearance on the popular German variety show “Wetten dass...” that he and on-again, off-again, on-again girlfriend Sharlely Kerssenberg will be getting married on June 12 in Switzerland. The pair were dating about 4 years when the German star broke it off via text message a day before his 40th birthday in 2007. How sweet.
Last summer Boris began dating Sandy Meyer-Woelden, the 24-year old daughter of his late manager Axel Meyer-Woelden and ex-girlfriend of Tommy Haas. The couple also became engaged until Sandy ended the relationship via what? You guessed it - a text message.
The tennis legend admitted to the audience he had "taken a wrong turn" and was forgiven by Sharlely shortly after his breakup with Sandy.
Boris + Lilly, I wish you all the happiness in the world. Oh, and lots of couples, and individual, therapy. You'll need it - just sayin'.
PS - Thanks Dophe!
