Looks like Nigella Lawson’s hubby Charles Saatchi, choked her at restaurant

Looks like Nigella Lawson’s hubby Charles Saatchi, choked her at restaurant

Y’all seen the pics of Nigella Lawson’s husband assault her in public? Just a reminder that domestic abuse doesn’t only happen to folks in lower socioeconomic group, brutal men come in all forms, even amongst the genteels.

You know me, always skeptical, first thought the photos were, well, “a publicity stunt”, then the rational part of me kicked in and said naah, this was for real. Nigella isn’t a young dumb fame hungry starlet who would stoop that low for publicity…not that I know the woman.

As the pictures taken while they dined at Scotts in Soho shows, he was choking her, but even more shocking is that of all the people who talked to reporters and even the photographer who took the pictures, no one tried to intervene. That says just as much about them as it does about Charles Saatchi. Oddly, last week a members of the public helped apprehend robbers who had smashed and grabbed jewellry from Selfridges in Oxford Street.  What sort of people care more about insured jewellry from a large company and didn’t come to the aid of a woman being assaulted in public?

I exchanged messages with someone on Twitter who thought a picture doesn’t always tell a story. I beg to differ in this case.

 

 

 

Ya think?  I don’t think so.  She clearly looks terrified and humiliated and I think it wasn’t the first time, if he can do this in public, heaven knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Photos in various papers showed her leaving their Chelsea home yesterday with a suitcase….seems like something she should have done a long time ago.

Sorry Mike, this is as real as it gets and I know a guy in Washington DC, who has had a massive crush on Ms Lawson since 1999 🙂 , his email this morning mentioned giving Charles Saatchi a good ass kicking.
