A woman who admits killing her boyfriend previously told a friend that he had inflicted the injuries himself.
OnlyFans model Abigail White, 24, phoned Laura Watkins screaming hysterically, saying that Bradley Lewis, 22, had stabbed himself through the heart, Bristol Crown Court heard.
Ms Watkins said: ‘At 8.48pm Abigail rang me hysterically screaming that Brad had stabbed himself – he had tried to kill himself.
‘Abigail said she was going to the hospital with a friend but didn’t say who this was.
‘She was screaming “He’s going to be okay, he’s going to be okay, tell me he’s going to be okay.”
‘Abigail kept saying, “He’s going to be fine, he’s going to be fine, we are going to be together.”‘
Bradley died from a three-inch stab wound to the heart on March 25 at White’s home in Kingswood, Gloucestershire, minutes after leaving a pub.
Her neighbour, Laura Cundy, heard his screams and she also said White told her he had stabbed himself.
She now admits that she killed him but insists it was manslaughter, not murder.
Louise Silk, who was at the pub with the couple before the killing, said White was upset that Brad wanted to end the relationship.
She said: ‘I think she was quite drunk, and everything was amplified and going on about things that were not relevant,’ she said.
Ms Silk said that when she came out of the toilet ‘everything was kicking off’.
The court heard how White threw a drink in another man’s face and spat at him, so he hit her to the ground.
She said: ‘I heard a slap and I saw her on the floor.’
Ms Silk also said White stabbed Mr Lewis in the arm just days before the fatal attack.
Mr Lewis had to go to an NHS walk-in centre for treatment.
In a voice message, White said: ‘I stabbed Brad… Oh, not like that.’
Referring to the walk-in centre, Ms Silk added: ‘She didn’t want him to go.’
The trial continues.
