Court is one of those things that tries its hardest to reveal alllllll of your dark and dirty secrets!
For Nigella Lawson — food writer and recipe maker — that's exactly the case. Oh, and it's working.
A court has just heard that her cocaine use was habitual, and she used her ex-husband Charles Saatchi’s money to pay off her aids from revealing the secret!
At 53, you'd think you'd be into being an adult instead of acting like a rebellious college kid with too much money. Instead, well into her middle-age, she used cocaine, weed and prescription pills on the daily for more than a decade secretly. Mr Saatchi, 70, totally wouldn't have like that, so why would she tell him??
She was pretty clever about it too — she had a verbal agreement with two Italian “kitchen confidantes.” Basically, they were allegedly given permission to use her husband's company credit card for personal use if they didn't talk about her affinity for faceboarding down Mt. Nose-Powder.
Wanna know how the courts found all this out?
Well, the two assistants ratted her out when they were charged for defrauding her husband for 300 THOUSAND EUROS!
They wanted to use that as part of their defense — the drug use — and a judge ruled that the “bad character” claims could be used in court, meaning Nigella will probz be cross-examined about them!
The trial has been postponed, but it was SUPPOSED to start today, due to new evidence and info!
Nigella divorced her husband in July for 'unreasonable behavoir,' but it sure sounds like he wasn't the one swimming in COCAINE!
We're super interested in how this might turn out!
