Report: Oscar Pistorius Took Acting Lessons For His ‘Days In Court’

PRETORIA, South Africa (UPI) — A South African journalist claims Olympian Oscar Pistorius took acting lessons to help prepare him to give testimony during his murder trial for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Jani Allan, a former columnist for the South African Sunday Times, made the allegations about Pistorius in a post on her blog. “I have it from a reliable source that you are taking acting lessons for your days in court,” Allan wrote in the post. “Your coach has an impossible task.”

Pistorius threw up and sobbed while giving testimony in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

Allan reiterated her allegations while speaking with The Sunday People. “I have this information from extremely reliable sources,” she said. “I have it on very good authority that Oscar is being coached on his court performance by a close actor friend, who is also famous in South Africa.”

Steenkamp’s mother June also questioned whether his testimony was an act. “He has been very dramatic, the vomiting and crying. I think he’s just about keeping himself together,” she said. “I don’t know whether he’s acting.”

The “Blade Runner” is facing 25 years to life in prison if he is convicted.
