London: Disgraced Paralympics runner Oscar Pistorius' deceased girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp's mother has claimed that her daughter confided in her that she had not yet had a sexual relationship with the double amputee athlete.

Pistorius shot Reeva dead on Valentines Day last year and has been jailed for five years for culpable homicide.

 

Reeva's mother June Steenkamp said that she believed her daughter, who had only been dating Pistorius for less than three months, had nagging doubts about their compatibility and felt the relationship was coming to an end before she was shot dead, The Mirror reported.

June claimed that Reeva had confided to her that she hadn't slept with Pistorius, adding that they had shared a bed, but she was scared to take the relationship to that level. She also said that her daughter wouldn't want to sleep with Pistorius if she wasn't sure.

 

June said that she believes their relationship was coming to an end, adding that in her heart of hearts, she didn't think it was making either of them happy.

June, who is due to release a book 'Reeva: a Mother's Story', added that Pistorius is gun toting, trigger happy, possessive and shifty. She also added that she does not believe the athlete, who has been sentenced to five years in prison for the manslaughter of Reeva.

In an extract from her book June added that it was Reeva's bad luck that she met Pistorius, because sooner or later he would have killed someone.

 

June also said that she and Reeva's father Barry have recurring nightmares about their daughter's final moments and the fear she must have gone through. She said that both of them are haunted by the same nightmare, the vision of Reeva suffering the terrible trauma, her terror and helplessness and her yells for help piercing the silent night air.

The Olympic sprinter was jailed for five years for killing his then-girlfriend, but he could be out of prison in 10 months. Pistorius was also given a suspended three-year term for a firearms offence.

 

June's book is to be published on November 6, the report added
