Saatchi announces he is divorcing TV’s Nigella Lawson

AFP, LONDON

British art collector Charles Saatchi told a newspaper yesterday that he is divorcing his wife, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson, following an incident in which he grabbed her by the neck outside a London restaurant.

Under the headline “I’m divorcing you Nigella,” 70-year-old Saatchi said in a statement to the Mail on Sunday that he had made a “heartbreaking” decision to separate from his 53-year-old wife because she had not defended him over the row.

The former advertising executive, who owns London’s Saatchi Gallery for contemporary art, accepted a police caution last month after pictures of the incident appeared in another tabloid, the Sunday People.

“I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced,” he said.
