Patricia Driscoll, ex-girlfriend of Kurt Busch, issued a statement Wednesday countering Busch’s claim that she is an assassin.

Busch and Driscoll have been in Kent County (Del.) Court on a protective order hearing Driscoll seeks against Busch after he allegedly abused her in his motorhome in September at Dover International Speedway. Summations are due in two weeks and a ruling will be made then.

Busch testified this week that he believes Driscoll is an assassin and once returned in a blood-splattered gown, according to The Associated Press.

"Everybody on the outside can tell me I'm crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand," Busch said when his attorney, Rusty Hardin, questioned why he still believed Driscoll is a hired killer, according to the AP.

Busch testified that Driscoll - a consultant with a security company - repeatedly asserted to be an assassin and claimed her work on missions across the Central and South America and Africa. He stated one example of when she left a hotel room in El Paso, Texas, in camouflage but returned wearing a trench coat over an evening gown that had blood on it, according to the AP. The testimony came a day after Busch said she told him she was a mercenary and showed pictures of bodies with gunshot wounds.

Driscoll countered those statements Wednesday in a statement first reported by Yahoo’s! Jay Busbee. 

“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.,’’ Driscoll’s statement read. “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.”

Dover Police submitted its investigation to the attorney general’s office, which has not announced if it will seek charges against Busch.

Driscoll claims that she went to Busch’s motorhome at Dover after receiving distraught texts from him even though they had recently broken up. Driscoll claims Busch slammed her head three times against the wall. Busch has denied that, saying he asked her several times to leave his motorhome and cupped her cheeks in his hands and said she needed to leave.
