BERLIN (AP) — Boris Becker has confirmed his relationship with a German pop star, according to a newspaper report Monday, the latest revelation following his highly publicized divorce battle from his wife, Barbara.

When a reporter from the mass-circulation Bild newspaper confronted him at a New York hotel where he was staying with rapper Sabrina Setlur, Becker confirmed he has been involved with her since December but denied previous reports that she was pregnant.

``Our relationship is a young plant that must be fed,'' the tennis star said, adding that his marriage already was on the rocks before he met Setlur.

``I am a grown-up man. I am separated and single. Sabrina is also single. We aren't doing anything forbidden,'' he was quoted as saying. ``Should we book separate hotels and at night sneak over to each other?''
