Nigella Lawson can breathe a sigh of relief, as a judge has granted her a divorce from her asshole scrotum of a husband, Charles Saatchi. Just in case you forgot, Charles choked her repeatedly in public, played it off as a joke, admonished Nigella for not defending him and then refused to apologise. Sounds like a stand-up guy. Thank Christ she got away from him.
From BBC News:
TV chef Nigella Lawson and art collector Charles Saatchi have been granted a divorce at the High Court in London, ending their 10-year marriage.
In a hearing lasting less than a minute, District Judge Anne Aitken granted the couple a decree nisi.
Well, that was quick and simple. The only thing that’s a shame is that it took this incident for shit to take off like this. I guess she didn’t really have a choice since she was publicly humiliated, just about. Either way, I’m just glad she got out. This is some serious bullshit and NO ONE should put up with abuse – physical, mental, emotional or whatever – by someone who is supposed to love them. Fuck that.
Nigella Lawson is finally divorcing her scumbag husband – the lovely gent who felt it appropriate to choke her in public, joke about it and then admonish her for not defending his honour – and everyone wants the details. According to reports, Oprah Winfrey might just be the one to get them in a sit-down interview in the coming months all about her divorce.
From The Sunday Mirror:
The domestic goddess, 53, is said to be considering the offer from the telly host, often dubbed “the most influential woman in the world”.
Devastated Nigella is thought to be keen to speak to Oprah, 59, as she knows she will not be pushed into divulging details about the controversial end to her
The pair split after shocking photographs emerged last month of Saatchi gripping Nigella by the neck.
The interview would be a chance for Nigella, who fronts reality TV series The Taste in the US, to re-establish herself as a prominent personality in the States.
A source said: “Oprah is the place to go if you want to give an interview on a difficult topic and don’t want to be grilled.
“Nigella understands she will have to start promoting her television show but she does not want to be dogged by uncomfortable questions about her marriage.”
Well, I imagine the whole subject is uncomfortable so any questions about being choked in public by your husband or any other possible abuse going on aren’t going to be a bed of roses. I do think Oprah might be the best person to talk to if she actually wants to talk about this, though.
I don’t see how one can remain “amicable” with an asshole who chokes you in public, then calls it a joke, then releases a public statement about how shitty you are for not defending him for abusing you, but okay, let’s just take this joint statement from Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi for what it is. They’re getting a divorce and I can’t wait.
Here we go…
“Following the separation of Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi there has been much inaccurate speculation in the press over the weekend.
“Nigella and Charles would like to clarify the position. We can confirm that Fiona Shackleton is acting for Nigella Lawson to ensure a swift and amicable resolution.
“A divorce will proceed on the undefended basis, the decree nisi is to be pronounced on July 31, and neither party will be making any financial claims against the other.”
Well, that’s nice, I guess. At least he’s not giving her a hard time about getting the divorce. Now Nigella can go back to being a total queen and not needing some asshole abuser in her face. Ladies, I’d advise becoming against Charles Saatchi’s fourth wife. It won’t end well.
