Reeva Steenkamp had met with her ex-boyfriend two days before Oscar Pistorius fatally shot her on Valentine’s Day. Warren Lahoud, 27, had dated the 29-year-old model for five years but they kept in touch even after their liaison ended.
As The Mirror reports, Lahoud and Steenkamp went for a coffee two days before she was killed. During their conversation, Lahoud said the Paralympian athlete phoned Reeva every 20 minutes. “I said, ‘‘Is everything ok? I mean he’s phoned twice already, every 20 minutes’. I asked her that question. She said, ‘there’s nothing wrong’,” Lahoud said.
Although Pistorius kept calling her, Lahoud said there was nothing in Reeva’s ways that made him even think there were problems between the two of them. “She didn’t seem unhappy. She always said that she wouldn’t be with anybody who she felt unhappy with,” Mr Lahoud said.
On Monday, a friend of Pistorius told the BBC the double amputee athlete is feeling suicidal. The friend, Make Azzi, made the claim in a documentary called ‘Oscar Pistorius: What Really Happened?’.
