Hot celebrity TV chef, Nigella Lawson, was attacked by her art collector husband, Saatchi, during a vicious row at their favourite London restaurant.
The Sunday People reports that Saatchi squeezed Nigella’s throat and reduced her to tears, thereby shocking the fellow diners and passers-by in and around that area.
Saatchi abused her and grasped Nigella’s throat thrice, tweaked her nose and then pushed both his bands on her face. Nigella, on her part, bore it all helplessly and looking horrified.
Saatchi was shooting angry tirades over his wife and Nigella was trying to pacify her husband, her voice trembling every now and then during the conversations. The distraught celebrity chef even made an effort to kiss on her violent husband’s cheek.
“It was utterly shocking to watch,” said one onlooker to the daily. “I have no doubt she was scared. 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. No man should do that to a woman. She raised her voice and got angry but at the same time was trying to calm him down, almost like you would try to calm down a child.
"The kiss was a strange thing. He was being intimidating, threatening.
Apparently, cracks in the couple’s 10-year-old marriage have started showing (in public).
Saatchi left his wife sobbing at the table and left in the car the couple had in waiting.
