NASCAR Driver Kurt Busch Claims His Ex-Girlfriend Is A Trained Assassin

Everyone’s had something to say about an ex-spouse or partner who left them on bad terms. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch has an interesting name for his ex-girlfriend: trained killer. 

Does this look like the face of a trained killer? NASCAR’s Kurt Busch thinks so. 

Busch testified in court as part of a no-contact request filed by his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll that she is actually a trained soldier of fortune who has killed people for money. Something tells us that Driscoll is going to get that request and maybe a few extra feet of space as an added bonus. 

Busch claims that his ex-girlfriend was upfront with him about her second life as a killer for hire. He testified that she showed him pictures of some of the people she had been paid to kill. She also allegedly said that one of the characters in the movie “Zero Dark Thirty,” the film that recounts the operation that led to the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, was loosely based on her nefarious activities. He even said that she once came home in an evening gown covered in blood. 

One too many left turns?

All of this information came from four straight days of testimony from the NASCAR racer. Driscoll waited for Busch to complete his insane sounding assertions before releasing a statement to the Associated Press. She called Busch’s claims “ludicrous,” “without basis” and “an attempt to destroy my credibility.” She also claimed that Busch concocted the story from a screenplay she’s been working on for the past seven years.

Her statement said;

“Over the past 7 years I have worked on a movie script with producers about a female CIA operative and her work on classified missions for the U.S.  The script was bought by a couple different production companies. Over the years many people have heard the many variations the script has taken each time it was purchased by another studio. Mr Busch has seen and given commentary to me on the latest script because some of the stories he told on the stand are straight from the script. Mr. Busch's statements in court serve to confirm my belief that he needs professional counseling to deal with his alcoholism and issues of depression. Since day one I have stood by my statements that my motive was not greed but in fact concern for the man I loved. I have previously shared my concerns for Mr Busch's mental state since the onset of this case only to be dismissed by his legal team. Perhaps now his family and those around him recognize his fragile state and will provide him the mental health care and support he needs. He clearly believes fiction is reality and that's all the more reason he needs help.”

That may be true but we’ve got to say that having a "crazy ex-boyfriend" claim you’re an assassin would be the perfect cover if you were an assassin... or saying it's all just "part of a movie script." We've all watched enough films to know that!
