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.

WHAT A POS. HEY SATCH, NO ONE IS GOING TO GO TO BAT FOR YOU, YOU JERK. YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN VIOLENT TOWARD HER? DID YOU SEE THE PICTURES? IT WILL BE A BLESSING FOR NIGELA AND HER KIDS TO BE AWAY FROM THIS FREAKING MONSTER.

Saatchi hasn't done himself "ANY FAVORS"!!! His wife declined to offer a "DEFENSE" for his actions because "THERE ISN'T ONE"!!! Instead, he should have released a "SINCERE APOLOGY" indicating he would be "SEEKING PROFESSIONAL HELP" to address "HIS ISSUES"!!! Divorcing her doesn't "EXCUSE HIS ACTIONS"!!! Blaming her makes him look pathetically "NARCISSISTIC" and "STUPID"!!! Not being able to control himself "IN PUBLIC" is "PRETTY BAD". IN PRIVATE, HE'S PROBABLY MUCH WORSE!!!
