The source allegedly told the Sun: “They saw each other a few times in the weeks before the shooting but Erin’s been in a state since Reeva was killed. She can’t believe Oscar could ever deliberately kill anyone.

“Erin knew word was out about their relationship and has been expecting police to knock on her door for weeks.”
