Charles Saatchi Divorcing Nigella Lawson Because She Didn't Defend Him When He Choked Her. Wait ... what?

By Dustin Rowles | Celebrities Are Better than You | July 8, 2013 | Comments ()


A few weeks ago, I didn't even realize that Nigella Lawson was married. All I knew about her was that she could cook, and that she looked damn nice doing it. Then, Saatchi allegedly choked Lawson at a restaurant, and though it seemed too bizarre to be true, the paparazzi images seem to confirm it. I gawked at those pictures for a while because I wanted to believe it was some sort of paparazzi GOTCHA, and though I don't know if he choked her hard, he clearly had his hands around her throat, and she was clearly upset about it.


Anyway, after the incident -- which Saatchi called a "playful tiff" -- Lawson moved out. Jump to three weeks later, and now Saatchi is divorcing her. Why? Because she didn't stick up for him over the choking incident.

"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."

I dunno. You can't really say you've never abused her in any way when there is photographic evidence that you've abused her in some way. Maybe Saatchi is a really good guy, who Lawson had wanted to divorce for a while, and she's using the incident as an excuse to get out. On the other hand, HE HAD HER HANDS AROUND HER NECK.

So, you know: The benefit of the doubt swings toward Nigella Lawson here. She's is, after all, a woman who has her priorities straight, which makes her infinitely trustworthy.


I think the moral of the lesson here, though, is DON'T CHOKE YOUR WIFE.
