Cape Town - Katie Price made headlines again this week when she spoke about Oscar Pistorius on a British talk show on Tuesday night.

During the show Katie revealed that Oscar sent her direct messages (DMs) on Twitter during his trial. (You can watch the full TV interview here)

Katie is really trying hard to make a big deal out of the messages she received, but The Juice can confirm that Oscar frequently sent DMs to fans and followers.

In 2010, three years before the shooting, one of The Juice's current reporters tweeted a message of support to Oscar after he said he was feeling a bit down.

A few minutes later a DM from Oscar popped into our reporter's inbox. It read: "Thanks for the support, just had a rough day...:( early to bed and will kill the relay tomo...(sic)" (See a screengrab below)

The Juice reached out to a family representative for comment on Katie Price's latest comments. The family said: "This is such an old ‘story’. We responded to the same enquiry last year. Our position is exactly the same as then. We do not respond to stories. It is pointless and serves no purpose."

Here’s the message:

Did Oscar ever direct message you? Let us know and we might put it in a piece @thejuicesa.
