Nigella Lawson's Hubby

Files for Divorce

I'll Teach You, Bitch!

The husband of famous TV cooker Nigella Lawson has gone from the throat to the jugular -- filing for divorce because his wife didn't come to his defense after he choked her in public.

Yeah, you read right.

Charles Saatchi -- the mega-wealthy art collector who famously put his hands around Lawson's throat last month outside a famous London restaurant in plain view of paparazzi -- issued a statement announcing the divorce:

"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."

  Saatchi got a warning from cops to not do it again. Boy, those Brits are forgiving.

But Saatchi wasn't done. He went on to blame Nigella, saying they had drifted apart over the last year and essentially admitting that he went to town on her throat:

"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."

So what should happen to Saatchi? Please advise in comment section.

He made his money based on intimidation. She should have seen that initially. I don't feel sorry for her.

To correct the story a police caution is an admission of guilt and is a criminal admittance of guilt if he accepts it. If he didn't have a police criminal record before now he does. It was mild, true, but its still a criminal record

I LOVE how he is trying to spin his bad behavior.
Sorry any man that put his hand on a woman like that in PUBLIC is much worse in private. She should have defended his crap behavior. She's lucky to be rid of him.

In other words, he abused her physically and mentally, and he's furious she won't lie and say he didn't. So--he'll show her. He'll divorce her. And she's going "thank you, thank you, thank you, good riddance".

That is exactly what an abuser does, blame the one they're abusing! Why would he even care what the public thinks, stop caring about others and care about his actions.

White people, violentg Neanderthals who try to keep up appearances. This one unfortunately dropped the script. What do you mean what should happen, what always happens, pretend it didn't happen then blame a black person for something. This is what I said yesterday, whiny spineless whimps!
