We don’t condone domestic violence but, we might choke a beyotch out too if she wasted half a million of OUR money to hide her drug habit!!!
According to NY Daily News reports:
British television chef Nigella Lawson is being accused of secretly abusing drugs at the expense of her ex-husband Charles Saatchi during their 10-year marriage.
Months after the couple’s divorce, Lawson, 53, was brought up again in a London court during the trial against the celebrity chef’s former assistants, Italian sisters Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, who have been charged with stealing over $480,000 of Saatchi’s money to spend on lavish holidays, designer handbags and other items — according to The Telegraph.
As part of their defense, the assistants, who worked for Lawson for over 10 years, claimed that the celebrity chef permitted the use of her husband’s credit card for their lavish expenditures — all in exchange for keeping her alleged drug habit a secret.
According to the defense, the pair had an “understanding” with Lawson to keep mum about her “daily” abuse of cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills, the newspaper reports.
They say the kitchen maven sustained her drug habit without her husband’s knowledge for 10 years.
“The defendants will maintain that they were fully aware of her illicit drug use and she essentially would consent to their expenditure on the understanding that there would be no disclosure to her husband of her usage,” a lawyer for Elisabetta Grillo, 32, reportedly said in court.
Lawson’s legal team dismissed the drug allegations as “totally scurrilous” and “untrue,” according to the Telegraph, noting that the timing of it all is “no coincidence at all” — in reference to Lawson’s headline-grabbing divorce drama.
Dayuuuum. That’s a helluva hush money fund. Stay off that blow!
