Multimillionaire Charles Saatchi has filed for divorce from celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.
Saatchi announced that he initiated divorce proceedings against Lawson in a statement to the Daily Mail. Saatchi and Lawson have been married for ten years.
The couple’s martial problems came to the surface in June when a picture of Saatchi with his hands around Lawson’s neck appeared in the tabloids. Lawson subsequently moved out of the family home. Saatchi denied that he attacked Lawson and claims that he voluntarily went to the police to accept a warning. Saatchi said that he is “disappointed” that Lawson was “advised to make no public comment” that he has never physically abused her.
