Oscar Pistorius' ex girlfriend Samantha Taylor, 20, has revealed horrifying details about the world's most famous paralympian who was today pronounced guilty of manslaughter.
According to Samantha, who was a witness in Oscar's trial for the killing of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013, Oscar is very "insecure," "angry," and "possessive," and often erupts into anger over nothing or anything. She said she felt bad he was lying all through the trial.
She said her relationship with him which lasted for 18 months was a terrifying one and she always feared he would flipped and kill her, adding that, "It could have been me." Samantha said she was once left with bruises and scars after he bit and pinched her and that she constantly suffered emotional torture while they dated.
"Oscar used to lock me in his house and then go out. I had no food, I couldn’t get out. It was dangerous.
"He often went out saying he will just be an hour or so and ended up out all day or night. I wouldn’t hear from him all night and his phone would be off.
"He would say he’s going out for an hour and the next day, three in the morning, he would drive home." Continue...

Judge Thokozile Masipa has found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide (manslaughter). He was absorbed of murder yesterday when the judge determined that he had no intention to kill but by reaching for his firearm and shooting towards the supposed threat in his bathroom which she described as a "small cubicle," Pistorius "acted too hastily and used excessive force," adding that his conduct was "negligent."
The maximum jail term for culpable homicide is 15 years, meaning that despite being cleared of murder, Pistoriuos could still end up behind bars for Reeva Steenkamp's death. His sentencing may take weeks
He was also found guilty of one of the three weapon charges against him. He was found not guilty of two - a car shooting incident and illegal possession of firearm in house, while he was found guilty of a shooting at a restaurant called Tashas.
More details later.

Are you kidding me? This guy is a special case of a capital 'oniranu' ... pardon my french but I am reeling in laughter trying to picture how he must have walked through the automated door like every other customer, jumps over the counter and started stuffing his bag with money.... very epic scenery! But for the failed ring, some bankers would have been in trouble today over monies that suddenly went missing.

Back in 2012, popular TV personality and video music director, Kemi Adetiba was accused of defrauding a church - God Bless Nigeria Church of N15 million purportedly paid to her to shoot a documentary for them. Kemi hasn't really spoken on the matter, but now, two years after, she has finally cleared the air and also shared a letter she received from the said church, clearing her of the fraud allegations. While addressing the matter, Kemi wrote on Instagram:
"Two years ago I was delivered one of the biggest lessons of my life and career. I landed in Paris to an urgent message from a friend asking if I had seen the blogs. Without much information given, I logged on with trepidation to find huge headlines, "Kemi Adetiba arrested for fraud" some even saying I was at that moment locked up (Meanwhile I was in my hotel room in Paris, mind you). There were incredible stories about my father begging authorities for my release, me crying and promising I would pay back money I had 'defrauded', Yo being kicked out of the Dance reality show I was hosting at the time for this reason. Save a few lines I made via Twitter I never properly addressed this. I've been taught never to fight the fight on social media as everything you say just ends up being twisted and turned against you. I also promised myself I wouldn't be the one to vindicate myself. Everyone would expect me to deny if course but I insisted that it would be others to vindicate me."Continue to read more of what she wrote, plus see the letter from the church...

The judge in the murder trial against Oscar Pistorius has ruled out a verdict of premeditated murder, saying the prosecution failed to prove he killed his girlfriend Reevan Steenkamp intentionally.
However, judge Thokozile Masipa is yet to reach a verdict but Pistorius may face other verdicts - culpable homicide or manslaughter in which case he maybe slammed with a long jail term.
Judge Masipa questioned why he fired "not one, but four shots" into the bathroom before he went to find his girlfriend. But said, the intention to shoot does not necessarily mean the intent to kill. Continue...
