Oscar Pistorius â€” on bail while awaiting trial for the pre-meditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp â€” appeared relaxed and chatty as he sank booze with chums.
Witnesses claim he knocked back shots â€” ironically known as â€œshootersâ€ in South Africa â€” at a trendy bar and patted the bottom of a palâ€™s girlfriend.
The Paralympianâ€™s night on the Pist-orius was revealed days after his family issued a statement saying he mourned model Reeva, 29, every moment.Pistorius, 26, shot her at his Pretoria mansion on Valentineâ€™s Day, claiming he mistook her for an intruder.
His family said he has been tortured by grief, but a woman partygoer said of the now-bearded star nightâ€™s out in a VIP area of the Kitchen Bar in Johannesburg: â€œHe was flirtatious. He didnâ€™t seem like someone who had lost the love of his life.â€
Another witness said: â€œHe was greeting a couple and then gave the woman a pat on her backside. It was so inappropriate.â€
A male guest said: â€œThe place went quiet when people realised it was Oscar.â€ His spokesman said he â€œstrenuously denies inappropriate behaviourâ€, saying of the night: â€œIt was a way of trying to reconnect with friends.â€
