Nigella Lawson splits

July 17, 2013

British television culinary seductress Nigella Lawson appears to be headed for divorce, in an odd marital twist. Lawson, 53, learned of her husband’s intention to divorce her through his declaration to leave her in the Mail on Sunday tabloid newspaper.

Said husband, multi-millionaire advertising executive and big deal art collector Charles Saatchi, 70, had previously admitted to grasping Lawson around the throat in a the Mayfair restaurant called Scott’s, as was published in photos throughout Britain. While denying any violence, Iraqi-born Saatchi showed up at the Charring Cross police station and accepted a “police caution” for the assault.

According to the MailOnline, Saatchi has been known for supposedly quirky dietary habits, such as eating only fish for dinner (not so uncommon) or binge dieting on three scrambled or boiled eggs at every meal. Apparently Lawson cooked separately for Saatchi at every home meal.

Saatchi is credited with creating her moniker “Domestic Goddess,” known to others to market “boobs, butter and books” and as a master of “food porn” who sells hundreds of thousands of “cookery books” in the U.S. and U.K.

While their marriage has been rocky for the last year, Saatchi says his grounds for his “heartbreaking” divorce from Lawson are that she didn’t publicly defend his reputation after the photos of him squeezing her neck appeared in the press. Hello?
