Nigella Lawson, the celebrity TV chef, was subject to a vicious public attack by husband, art dealer Charles Saatchi.
The couple were photographed sitting outside at a cafe when things took an ugly turn. Saatchi repeatedly grabbed Lawson by the throat, first with one hand, then with both.
She jerked back and then later tried to pacify him by planting a kiss on his cheek, which he brushed off and left. She later left the restaurant in tears, hiding her face with her hands and biting her lip.
While, no report of domestic abuse was filed at the police station, Lawson was spotted leaving the flat she shared with her husband with a suitcase in tow.

Sad times. We hope she has the strength to move on.
