This is what happens when you file for a divorce on the front page of a newspaper. Nigella Lawson has contacted one of Britain’s most ruthless divorce lawyers in response to her husband’s public announcement that their marriage was over.
Nigella Lawson is holed up in her apartment in tears after learning from a newspaper that her husband, Charles Saatchi, was divorcing her. The Sun reports that the TV chef had no idea Saatchi had filed for a divorce until he issued a statement to the Mail on Sunday announcing it
Any hope for a reconciliation between Nigella Lawson and husband Charles Saatchi seems to have been dashed, as the celebrity chef moves her belongings out of their home – including her cookbooks and the blender. Lawson moved out after a widely reported incident at a restaurant where Saatchi was photographed grabbing her by the throat, which he dismissed as a “playful tiff”.
The photographer who took pictures of Nigella Lawson being assaulted by her husband says the attack lasted for “27 minutes of madness” but he didn’t intervene because he feared being arrested himself. Snapper Jean-Paul says the incident outside a London restaurant shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet and the celebrity chef Lawson was “properly abused” by art collector husband Charles Saatchi

Celebrity cook Nigella Lawson’s husband has said images of him with his hands round his wife’s throat misrepresented a “playful tiff”.
