Pistorius accused of assaulting two women in rock concert in 2011

February 17, 2013 13:25 IST

A fuming music fan has accused Oscar Pistorius of assaulting two women at a rock concert after getting drunk, saying the Paralympic and Olympic star pushed her and a friend and then branded them lesbians when they complained.

The woman said she was shocked at his disgusting behaviour at the Kings of Leon gig, in Johannesburg in 2011, the Daily Mirror reports.

In a blog post, she said: "I had the opportunity of finding out how unheroic Oscar can be when he has had too much to drink. I was at the Kings of Leon concert with my fiancé, my best friend and her husband."

"My first glimpse of Oscar was seeing him all but fall into a group of people and he had to be helped up by one of his equally drunk friends," she added in her blog.

Oscar Pistorious"My friend Marilyn and I were rocking away when we were practically shoved off our feet by Oscar," she wrote.

"When Marilyn told Oscar that his behaviour was rude and unacceptable, she was met with a flurry of verbal abuse. This included being labelled "f***king lesbians" and a significant amount more," she further added.

The fan warned readers that the golden boy of South Africa wasn't as big a "hero" as people made out.

She further wrote: "The most serious indictment against him from my perspective was why he felt the need to be abusive to women. I am afraid that this ''golden boy'' has not only tarnished his image as far as we are concerned.

"He offered us conclusive evidence there is just a very thin veneer of gold paint that covers him," she wrote. Pistorius is currently in jail for allegedly shooting his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp to death at his home in South Africa.
