With tears trickling down his face, Oscar Pistorius told the High Court in Pretoria on Tuesday his version of an argument on WhatsApp with his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

With tears trickling down his face, Oscar Pistorius told the High Court in Pretoria on Tuesday his version of an argument on WhatsApp with his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. "I just think it was a bad day in our relationship," said Pistorius after reading out Steenkamp's text to him sent on January 27 at 4.17pm. He had started reading the text fluently, but faltered when he came to parts where Steenkamp wrote: "I am the girl who fell in love with you and wanted to tell you this weekend."

'I think that maybe I was sensitive and felt insecure and jealous'

The court has heard through State data analyst Francois Moller that Steenkamp said she was "scared" of Pistorius after an incident at her friend's party.

She complained that there appeared to "double standards" in their relationship and that he was telling her how to behave.

On Tuesday, Pistorius said they had gone to friend Darren Fresco's engagement party but Pistorius had to pick up her friend who was running late.

He had said they would leave at a certain time and towards the end of the engagement party they were walking out of the venue and Steenkamp started talking to an "unknown person".

"She didn't introduce me. I made my presence known and again she didn't introduce me.

"I think that maybe I was sensitive and felt insecure and jealous," he explained.

Steenkamp started tickling his neck but, said Pistorius, "I wasn't kind to her".

They left and instead of her spending the night at his home in Pretoria as planned, she went back to her house.

"She was also in a short mood with me so instead I dropped her off at her place."

Steenkamp then sent the message.

Pistorius is charged with murdering her by shooting her through a toilet door at his home.

He is also charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, and two counts of discharging a firearm in public.

He allegedly fired a shot from a Glock pistol under a table at a Johannesburg restaurant in January 2013.

On September 30, 2012 he allegedly shot through the open sunroof of a car with his 9mm pistol while driving with friends in Modderfontein.

He has denied guilt on all charges.
