Lawson-Saatchi divorce decree granted in 70-second hearing

British celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and advertising magnate-multimillionaire art collector Charles Saatchi were granted a divorce decree nisi after 10 years of marriage in a 70-second court proceeding at the London high court on July 31. The couple will now have to wait about six weeks for a decree absolute to finalize their divorce.

Public rumors about their impending divorce started circulating after newspapers published photographs of the couple having an argument at a terrace restaurant in May, with Saatchi holding Lawson by the throat. Saatchi nixed public outcry about the photograph, saying it was merely a “playfull tiff” between a married couple.
