Oscar Pistorius 'twice called to interrupt innocent meeting between Reeva Steenkamp and her former long-term boyfriend in the days before her death'
News comes after Pistorius' close friend revealed the Olympian is 'on the verge of suicide'
A BBC documentary will tonight claim that Oscar Pistorius’ murdered girlfriend met with her former long-term boyfriend in the days before her death.
Following news that he is “on the verge of suicide” after being charged with Reeva Steenkamp’s murder, a BBC Three documentary titled ‘Oscar Pistorius… What Really Happened?’ is set to accuse the Olympian of twice calling to interrupt an “innocent” conversation between Ms Steenkamp and her ex-boyfriend Warren Lahoud.
The pair are said to have met for a coffee in “innocent circumstances” just days before Ms Steenkamp was killed, but were interrupted twice in the space of 40 minutes by phone calls from Pistorius.
Mr Lahoud reportedly said: “I said ‘is everything ok. I mean he’s phoned twice already, every twenty minutes’. I asked her that question. She said ‘there’s nothing wrong’“.
Mr Lahoud claims he had previously met Pistorius on two occasions, adding: “there was never anything negative out of it at all. [It was fine]…no problem at all.”
The news comes as a friend of Pistorius claimed he is “on the verge of suicide” as he is forced to sell off his belongings to fight a charge of premeditated murder.
Pistorius, 26, is accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after she was shot dead at his home last month.
He claims he shot her through a bathroom door thinking she was an intruder.
Mike Azzie, a close friend who Pistorius refers to as Uncle Mike, said the sportsman was a “broken man” after he was tasked with selling his racehorses to raise money to pay for spiralling legal fees.
Mr Azzie said Mr Pistorius regularly talks about Ms Steenkamp as he awaits his next court appearance on 4 June. He said: “He just always seems to mention Reeva and to ask us to pray for her…”
“I would say that he is a broken man and I would go as far to say that he would be on the verge of suicide. It really worries me.”
According to the documentary makers, Mentorn Media, police in Johannesburg said they have requested all records of phone calls and messages between Mr Pistorius and Ms Steenkamp on the day she was killed.
