Reports: Oscar 'paranoid' & 'skinny' in jail

2015-03-01 09:00

Just last week there were reports that Oscar Pistorius was being treated like 'royalty' while in prison.

It was claimed that because he was such a high-profile inmate, guards were keeping a special eye on him because they didn't want anything to go wrong.

There were also reports that Oscar's privileges has been increased, allowing him to have physical contact with family members, make more calls and given a bigger allowance.

Now Huisgenoot claims the athlete is taking major strain behind bars.  The magazine is quoting well-placed sources as saying that Oscar has lost so much weight, his prosthetic legs don't fit anymore.  It's also alleged that Oscar is paranoid about being poisoned and so he doesn't eat the meals provided, instead opting to buy tinned food from the tuck shop.

Although Oscar does not share a cell with anyone, those close to him claim he is under massive strain and keeps to himself.
