Nigella Lawson’s husband Charles Saatchi has filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage.
The decision follows a controversial incident in which photos were released that appeared to show Saatchi choking Lawson in a London restaurant. Saatchi denied the severity of the incident, while London police gave him a warning.
“I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced,” Saatchi told UK’s Daily Mail in a statement. “I feel that I have clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way.”
