Oscar Pistorius reportedly took acting lessons to help him with his MURDER trial!

Legless Olympian Oscar Pistorius took acting lessons to prep for his sobbing testimony in his sensational murder trial, claims a top South African journalist.

Jani Allan, a former columnist for the South African Sunday Times, claims her “close friend” — a famous South African actor — coached Pistorius for his appearance in the courtroom drama.

“I have it from a reliable source that you are taking acting lessons for your days in court,” Allan wrote in an open letter to Pistorius she posted on her blog.

“Your coach has an impossible task,”quipped Allan, 60, whom a 1987 Gallup poll deemed “the most admired person in South Africa.”

Allan suggested that Pistorius’s gut-wrenching testimony in which his sobbed and even puked was akin to an Academy Award-winning performance.

“Oscar, you are the latest in a long line of faux heroes,” wrote Allan, who now lives in New Jersey. “Like so many, you have betrayed your people and disappointed your fans.”

Pistorius claimed he mistook girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp for a burglar when he shot though a closed bathroom door in his Pretoria, South Africa, home, killing her on Valentine’s Day 2013.

Steenkamp’s mother, June, has also raised suspicion about Pistorius’ sincerity on the witness stand.

If convicted, Pistorius, who in 2012 became the first amputee ever to compete in the Olympics, faces 25 years to life in prison.

The trial resumes on May 5.

  2. The headline of this post is hilarious I must confess. Let justice prevail.
