Nigella Lawson's Hubby

Files for Divorce

I'll Teach You, Bitch!

7/7/2013 10:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 this guy is, he grabs her throat in public, that alone should tell you what he does to her behind closed doors. then he acts like a child and blames her for not defending him after he commits assault and battery on her. run Nigella run. no man ever has a right to lay hands on a woman.

Hope she can still take him to the cleaners, or whatever clever term the Brits use for scorching one's ex's gonads (via the wallet).

He has never abused her physically in any way? He certainly did that day in the restaurant. He also said it could easily have been her with hands around his throat yet the fact remainthat it was not. It was his hands. He is failing to take responsibility for his actions and shows zero remorse. Instead he's launching another public attack agsinst her. Good riddance to him!

This guy's got the classic abuser traits- extremely narcissistic & controlling.

typical abuser, doesn't matter what sex they are:

always blame the one receiving their abuse, it's always their fault, they made them...

gah, he needs serious help, thankfully he's helped her with his own words. she can use it against him.

Wow ...    

Text book abusive partner. He commits an act of violence, then is horrified she doesn't defend him and cover up his actions.

He and the missus get into a heated scuffle and in order to get her attention, he firmly places his hands around her neck. He's not the Boston Strangler, just a hubby who is pissed and pushed to the edge. If they were to jail every man or woman who ever did this to a spouse, there would be no traffic on our nation's highways and criminals -- ousted from prison to make room for felonious bickerers -- would roam the streets. Besides, it's not as if he found a shell in his scrambled eggs or anything.

He's got some nerve. He wants her to defend his deplorable behaviour after he admits that he's been a disappontment to her? Who are his advisors? Blaming his wife does him no favours!
