The defence team in Paralympic Oscar Pistorius' murder trial was trying to prove that the Paralympian and his slain girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp were 'happy with each other', despite their occasional arguments.


The defence team was trying to prove the point using a significant text message, in which Steenkamp accuses Pistorius of trying to 'kill her vibe' and making her 'unhappy' after he charges her with flirting with another man during a friend's engagement party.

The South African model had said that she was happy with her Paralympic boyfriend Oscar Pistorius '90 percent of the time' in one of the almost 1,000 text messages exchanged between them that were read out in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

Steenkamp had written that although Pistorius made her happy 90 percent of the time and that she believes both of them are 'amazing' together, she is not some 'bitch' trying to 'kill his vibe' and instead is the girl who fell in love with him.

However, by the end of the message trail that defence lawyer Barry Roux had Pistorius explain to the court, it was clear that they were trying to prove that after the end of the argument during a friend's engagement, the couple finally patched up.
