The Daily Mail UK is now reporting that Charles Saatchi is filing for divorce, and gave a statement to them. He said he "made the ‘heartbreaking’ decision to formally separate from the television chef because she refused to defend his reputation after he was pictured with his hand around her neck at their table." Since the incident, Nigella has refused to answer his calls or texts.
Here are some other things noted in the Daily Mail Story:
- Charles said he is against violence of women, and has never abused Nigella physically.
- Charles feels that Nigella chose her PR team's advice over his own, which tore them apart.
- In his statement, Charles said Nigella has held his neck in the past like he did to her at the restaurant.
- He wishes the best for Nigella's future global success.
The whole article is here and it is a pretty entertaining read if you are interested. Charles comes across as pretty controlling and seems to be trying to shift the blame to the victim. It may be fortunate for Nigella that she is able to get out of this relationship now.
