NASCAR driver Kurt Busch testified Wednesday in a Delaware court that his ex-girlfriend's claim that he smashed her head into a wall was completely false.

"I took my hands and cupped her cheeks. I looked her eye-to-eye. I said, 'You have to leave.' I was defusing the situation," he told the courtroom of his and Patricia Driscoll's September 26 confrontation at his motorhome, a week before the race at Dover International Speedway.

"It needs to be described because of the fabrication we listened to yesterday," said Busch, referring to her previous accusations, USA Today reported.

Busch said that the four-year relationship had been over for a week leading up to the night of the encounter. He said Driscoll had texted him to see how he was doing ahead of his race, and he texted her back saying he had been crying after watching the 1997 movie "Seven Years in Tibet" starring Brad Pitt.

He texted her that he didn't know "what way was up" and told her "I don't love anything right now."

That's when she showed up to his motorhome unannounced with her 9-year-old son. Busch told them to leave, but he said she insisted he tell the boy that the relationship with his mother was over.

Michael Doncheff, the couple's driver and personal assistant, said during his own testimony that he has suggested Driscoll visit the motorhome after she sent him a screenshot of her and Busch's text conversation.

He said he believed her account that Busch assaulted her, but did say that she has said some "far-fetched" and ridiculous things in the past.

She said once that she had been slammed to the ground by a big Mexican man while visiting the border, and said of her work at a D.C.-based defense consulting firm, "NASCAR is nothing. I take down foreign governments. I own Washington."
