The rep told People:
Oh how horrible!!
We certainly hope this isn't what was going on, but it seems celebrity chef Nigella Lawson might have been involved in a nasty matter with her husband, Charles Saatchi!
The two were dining out in London when it appears a disgusting incident went down, and that apparently includes her being CHOKED by him!
Fellow diners saw what appeared to be a violent interaction between the two, and pictures captured the horrible moment!
From what we've seen in the pics, Charles did put his hands on The Taste host's throat who appears to be in some level of pain. And from what we've heard, that's exactly what went down!
"It was utterly shocking to watch. 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."
This is one of the worst things we could hear!
We're not sure if that's exactly what happened, but if it is we sure hope they both get the help they need. No one should be hurt like that!
It's also being reported she has since left their home, and the matter is under investigation. We certainly hope both are true if the rest of this is true.
