Pistorius’s Exes Give Opposing Views
There is not consensus on Oscar Pistorius among is ex-girlfriends.
Trish Taylor, mother of Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor, wrote with some relief on Facebook: ‘I’m so glad Sammy is safe and out of the clutches of that man.’
Her daughter, a 26-year-old student from Cape Town, had recently tried to cast a spotlight on the Blade Runner’s previously unseen dark side.
After dating Pistorius for a year and a half until last year, Miss Taylor had told South Africa’s City Press newspaper that ‘Oscar is certainly not what people think he is’…
But another ex-girlfriend, Jenna Edkins, yesterday defended the sporting star.
She took to Twitter to stress: ‘All I am saying is let him speak, let his side be heard without jumping to conclusions.’
