Slain South African model Reeva Steenkamp texted that she was "scared" of track star Oscar Pistorius a few weeks before he shot her to death, a police expert testified Monday at Pistorius' murder trial.

"I'm scared of you sometimes and how you snap at me and how you react to me," Steenkamp said via the WhatsApp messaging service.

The trial of the Olympic and Paralympic star entered its fourth week, and Pistorius cried as police cellphone expert Francois Moller read the message aloud, said the International Business Times.

After further accusations, Steenkamp later texted, "You do everything to throw tantrums in front of people."

Another message revealed Steenkamp's anger after being criticized at a function they attended: "I can't be attacked by outsiders for dating you and be attacked by you, the one person I deserve protection from."

Pistorius maintains that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he shot her through the bathroom door on Valentine's Day 2013 at his luxury Pretoria home. He has pleaded not guilty to murder, saying he was deeply in love with the 29-year-old model and law school graduate.

The prosecutors are looking to prove that the murder was premeditated, claiming that Pistorius fired four rounds from a 9mm gun through a locked door after a bitter dispute.

Steenkamp's texts suggest a volatile pairing.

"We are living in a double standard relationship," she wrote in another text. "Every five seconds I hear about how you dated another chick. You really have dated a lot of people yet you get upset if I mention one funny story with a long term boyfriend."
