Oscar Pistorius

I'm NOT Suicidal

0311_oscar_pistorius
Girlfriend killer Oscar Pistorius is NOT on the verge of taking his own life -- despite multiple reports to the contrary -- this according to a source very close to Oscar.

Various reports hit the Internet this weekend claiming Oscar was suicidal ... after a man named Mike Azzi -- claiming to be one of Oscar's "dearest friends" -- told a British media outlet he feared for the Olympian's mental state, saying "I would say that, just by speaking to him, he is a broken man. I’d go as far as to say he would be on the verge of suicide."

But the source -- who has daily contact with Oscar -- says it's just not true. "Oscar is absolutely not suicidal and any reports out there are just false. Oscar is grieving like anyone would be ... but he is not suicidal."

The source also says Mike and Oscar were business acquaintances, not friends -- Mike trained Oscar's horses ... that's it, and he's in no position to know Oscar's mental state.

oscar pistorius is a defeated man.
upon his conviction, he will be forced to turn in his running blades and be forced into wearing a new set of prosthetic limbs with cloven feet like me, manbearpig. he will also get plastic surgery to give him vulcan-like pointy ears and must learn to play the pan flute like zamfir.

Seriously TMZ, who gives a f*ck about the mental state of this murderous POS. How freaking weird is it that both he and his brother have each killed a woman?
