Former tennis ace Boris Becker has allegedly dumped his girlfriend of 18 months for being too obsessed with her mobile phone.

The Wimbledon champion constantly argued with dancer CAROLINE ROCHER over her frequent phone calls to family and friends and finally decided her unusual addiction was too much for him, reports Britain's DAILY MIRROR newspaper.

An insider says, "They are not together any more. He was only playing love games with her."

The separation has fuelled speculation Becker wants to return to his ex-wife and mother of his two children BARBARA, who he famously described as "the soul mate that I have waited forever for".
