Oscar’s ex breaks down after telling court he cheated on her with Reeva

2014-03-07 11:50

Oscar Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend, Samantha Taylor, broke down on the stand after testifying that the reason she and the Paralympian murder-accused broke up was that he had cheated on her with Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius is standing trial for the alleged murder of Steenkamp on Valentines’ Day last year.

The court adjourned twice to give Taylor a chance to compose herself – the second time when Advocate Barry Roux, for Pistorius, asked Taylor how she had felt after their break-up. She said she was upset and started crying when he asked her with whom she had been upset.

Roux later accused her of having cheated on Pistorius. Taylor denied this but admitted to having had a relationship with a man named Quinton after she and Pistorius had broken up the first time.
