And this week, Woman’s Day is reporting that Bec and Lleyton Hewitt are ‘leading separate lives.’

According to the publication, tennis star Lleyton, 36, ‘escaped’ to the Bahamas after ‘constant fights and bickering’ with Bec, 34, who stayed in Melbourne.

‘They argue a lot, but it’s been worse lately as he’s been spending more and more time drinking with his mates to avoid home – and Bec – who hates it when Lleyton drinks,’ a source told the publication.  

The magazine adds that the pair are apart for almost six weeks as he spends time in the Bahamas before going to the US and Belgium, where he is now for the Davis Cup. 

‘It really is like he and Bec are leading separate lives. He’s set himself up in the Bahamas and she’s been left in Melbourne.’

The magazine also reports that the pair don’t have a pre-nup and Lleyton – who is worth a whopping $60 million – is ‘aware how costly a divorce could be.’

In May, it was reported by Woman’s Day that the pair – who share three young children together – bought a Melbourne mansion worth $12.7 million.

It apparently was a ‘guilt gift’ to ‘win Bec back.’

‘I love acting, but the hours are very long and I really want to be there for the kids,’ she said. 

She also said that moving back into public life has been daunting. 

‘I’m settled now, the kids are all in school but I’m really nervous. It’s been so many years since I’ve done talk shows and press,’ she explained. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted representatives for Bec and Lleyton for comment in relation to this story.
