UK Tabloid Photos Show Celebrity Chef Getting Choked By Her Husband
Popular UK celebrity chef Nigella Lawson found herself in a compromising position recently when she and her husband got into a public altercation at a busy seafood restaurant and it was all caught on camera.
Reports surfaced over the weekend of a recent public altercation between TV chef Nigella Lawson and her ad mogul/art collector husband Charles Saatchi, and now Scotland Yard is said to be investigating whether there was a violent physical component to the incident.
Photos published in the UK’s Sunday People appear to show Saatchi’s hand around Lawson’s neck as the two sit outside Scott’s, a popular seafood restaurant in central London frequented by the couple of nine years.
The two had been celebrating Saatchi’s 70th birthday when Saatchi suddenly leaned in and “grasped” Lawson’s neck, according to witnesses who spoke with the paper.
“I have no doubt she was scared,” said one bystander. “It was horrific, really. She was very tearful and was constantly dabbing her eyes. Nigella was very, very upset. She had a real look of fear on her face.”
During the alleged row, Saatchi reportedly held Lawson’s neck in a threatening manner at least four times, and pinched her nose.
Witnesses said they could hear Lawson speak in a “trembling voice,” and saw her attempt to calm Saatchi down by holding his hand and kissing his cheek.
The two then left the restaurant separately.
Daaayyyum. Is that how husbands are doing it over there in the UK? Assaulting their wives in broad daylight at a public place? SMH!
