A bombshell new report has claimed that Oscar Pistorius may haveshot his girlfriend dead after learning that she was pregnant with his child.
Earlier this week, American tabloid The National Inquirer reported Steenkamp had been shot because she was pregnant. But the family of Reeva Steenkamp have categorically denied this rumour.
Earlier unsubstantiated rumours suggesting Pistorius had been concerned his girlfriend was cheating on him had sparked the row which led to the shooting, the paper said. It inferred Steenkamp informed her lover she was expecting in an attempt to placate him.
Family spokesman Mike Steenkamp said: “The post mortem would have revealed if Reeva was pregnant and it did not reveal anything like this. Maybe it comes from the other side, to garner and build up some sort of support for Oscar.”
Pistorius claims he believed he was shooting at an intruder, but prosecutors say the double-amputee intended to kill the 29year-old.
A funeral service for the law graduate took place last week.
