(Newser) – Reeva Steenkamp met with her ex-boyfriend only two days before Oscar Pistorius killed her—and received two phone calls from the Olympic athlete during the coffee date, according to a new BBC documentary. "I mean he’s phoned twice already, every 20 minutes," her ex, Warren Lahoud, says he told her at the rendezvous. "She said, 'There’s nothing wrong.'" Lahoud is a successful entrepreneur with his own vegetable exporting business in South Africa, Radar reports.

But Lahoud says she "seemed fine. We didn’t really discuss personal relationships—it was more a friendly thing. ... She always told me that she wouldn’t be with anybody that she felt unhappy with." He added that he'd met Pistorius twice "and there was never anything negative out of it at all." Asked what he would say to Pistorius, Lahoud said, "Why? Why did you do it? What happened?" But he is satisfied leaving that "to the justice system, and their findings. Nobody knows, it’s all in their hands, and we just have to wait and see what happens." (Pistorius is now fighting his bail restrictions, and a pal says he is broken and "suicidal.")
