Nigella Lawson admits using cocaine, cannabis
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson on Wednesday admitted occasionally using cocaine and cannabis but dismissed claims she was a drug addict as an attempt by her ex-husband Charles Saatchi to "destroy" her. Speaking at the fraud trial of two ex-aides, Lawson said she took cocaine when her first husband John Diamond was dying and again in 2010 when she was being subjected to "intimate terrorism" by multi-millionaire art dealer Saatchi. Italian sisters Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo, who used to work as personal assistants to the celebrity couple, each deny fraudulently spending £685,000 ($1.1 million, 820,000 euros) on Saatchi's company credit cards.

Nigella Lawson, Charles Saatchi Move Forward With 'Swift And Amicable' Divorce
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LONDON — Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and art collector Charles Saatchi said they intend to conclude a "swift and amicable" divorce by the end of the month, with neither receiving any financial compensation from the other. The couple separated after a newspaper published photos last month of Saatchi grasping his wife's throat during an argument at a London restaurant. A statement issued Monday on their behalf said neither would contest the divorce "and neither party will be making any financial claims against the other." It said Lawson had hired powerhouse divorce lawyer Fiona Shackleton – whose previous clients include Prince Charles and Paul McCartney – while Saatchi was representing himself. The couple's "decree nisi," or initial divorce decree, is due to be pronounced July 31. Lawson and Saatchi married in 2003 and lived in London with Lawson's son and daughter from her marriage to journalist John Diamond, who died of cancer in 2001, and Saatchi's da ...

Nigella Lawson's Husband Divorcing Her After Choking Incident
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LONDON — Prominent art collector Charles Saatchi said Sunday he is divorcing his celebrity chef wife Nigella Lawson because she did not publicly defend his reputation after images emerged of him grasping her throat in a posh London restaurant. Tabloid newspapers last month published photos of the incident, which Saatchi described as a "playful tiff" during an intense debate about the couple's children. The 70-year-old Saatchi was given a police "caution" after admitting assault. He told Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper that he was "sorry" to announce he will be divorcing Lawson, adding that they have become "estranged" and drifted apart over the past year. "`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," he said. In what the tabloid call ...
