New Delhi: If the revelations given out by Indian American model and former wife of Nobel Laureate Salman Rushdie, Padma Lakshmi are to be believed – it gives a rather dim picture of the popular author.

Lakshmi in her autobiography – 'Love, Loss And What We Ate' has revealed that Rushdie needed to be consoled frequently for losing the Nobel Prize for Literature every year, according to a report in DNA.

She has also accused the author of being 'cold' and 'harsh'. In her book, she mentions that once when she declined Rushdie's sexual advances, he called her 'bad investment'.

She said that her former husband was insensitive towards her health issues which made sexual intercourse painful.
