Nigella Lawson‘s husband has filed for divorce following an incident where he was caught choking her in public. Apparently Charles Saatchi is NOT happy that Nigella didn’t come to his defense publicly after he choked her and it was plastered on a magazine cover (seen below).
Charles Saatchi famously put his hands around his wife’s throat last month outside a famous London restaurant in plain view of paparazzi. Now Charles, a super wealthy art collector, has filed for divorce from the famous TV chef and released an interesting statement regarding it:
“I feel that I have clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way.”
Charles got a warning to ‘not do it again’ by the British cops, and now he’s gone on to BLAME Nigella saying that the couple had drifted apart over the past year and basically admitted he ‘went to town on her neck.’
“The row photographed at Scott’s Restaurant could equally have been Nigella grasping my neck to hold my attention — as indeed she has done in the past.”
Here’s a suggestion, Nigella: take that divorce and RUN!
