Celebrity TV chef Nigella Lawson was recently caught up in an aggressive Argument with her advertising Guru/Art Collector Husband Charles Saatchi.
The The Mirror.co.uk reports that the bust-up came after the couple had just finished eating at the specialist seafood restaurant, a popular haunt for celebrities including Pippa Middleton, Jeremy Clarkson and Simon Cowell.
Nigella and Saatchi always ask for the same table, which is outside because he likes to smoke.
It is partly sheltered by olive trees and box bushes. But the attack could be clearly seen and heard by other customers and those passing by the restaurant in the busy street.
Nobody intervened although the incident looked brutal. that Her eyes are transfixed as she struggles to prise away the powerful hand squeezing around her throat.
The glamorous TV cook Nigella Lawson looks stunned to be attacked by her art collector husband Charles Saatchi during a vicious row at their favourite London restaurant.
Fellow diners and passers-by at Scott’s in Mayfair were shocked to see the advertising multimillionaire reduce his celebrity wife to tears.
Saatchi launched a tirade of angry words. Four times he grasped her around the neck with Nigella, 53, looking powerless and petrified.
At first he used only his left hand, then both. At one stage he tweaked her nose then pushed both hands in her face. Twice Nigella jerked her head backwards as if in fear.
Several times she nodded intently while the conversation became more and more heated.
By the end of the meal she was clearly distraught and in tears.
Now there are fears of severe problems in their 10-year marriage – his third and her second.
Nigella has been abroad frequently promoting her latest book and TV series while Saatchi, 70, has become ever more reclusive and tetchy.
A couple on the adjacent table, who briefly chatted with Nigella earlier, turned round and gasped in alarm as they saw her in distress.
She dabbed her eyes on a linen napkin as Saatchi tapped his cigarettes impatiently on the table.
Nigella then downed her glass of red wine in one gulp and began to talk, her voice trembling.
She seemed to be trying to pacify her husband, placing a hand on his left wrist as it lay on the table.
At that moment she leaned over and kissed his right cheek.
“It was utterly shocking to watch,” said one onlooker. “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.
“And yet she kissed him. She appeared to be a woman who loves him but was clearly unable to stop him being abusive, frightening and disrespectful to her.”
Saatchi, 6ft and 17 stone, marched off, leaving his wife sobbing at the table and grasping her mobile phone as he got into a car the couple had waiting.
The onlooker said: “He looked guilty. It was clear he knew he’d done something wrong. He was menacing, there’s no question. She had been abused and humiliated in public.”
As Nigella walked to the car she put a hand to her mouth and bit her lip while wiping away tears.
It is Utterly bad for any one to face abuse how much more in public..Sad Indeed!
UPDATE: Nigella is said to have left her home with her Son and a suitcase few hours after the Event made it to press please read more updates on DailyMailUK
