Nigella Lawson's ex-husband threatens suicide

Nigella's anguish and pain clearly visible after choking incident

It seems that Nigella Lawson's ex-husband Charles Saatchi has descended into a very dark place.  He's having a tough time accepting the loss of his wife and is appalled that he now has the reputation of being a wife-beater.  Only he knows which one he values more.

He bombarded Nigella with texts and phone calls day and night and said he would kill himself if she didn't speak to him so in the end, she gave in.  He now understands that the marriage is over and she's not coming back.

Nigella's career hasn't skipped a beat and she is one of the few British cooks to break into the American market.  She is currently on holiday in Italy with her sons but will return to the US to continue working on The Taste, where chefs take on amateur cooks in a cooking competition. She is not only a presenter but an executive producer and will return to London in October to start filming the British version of the show.

Friends of Charles said he became "unhinged" when Nigella remained silent and didn't defend him by telling the world that he was not an abusive husband, but she chose not to say anything, and sadly for him, that's what he'll be remembered for.  Apparently Charles is a very clever man and a very rich one.

It's strange how things work out, the shocking photos of Charles choking his wife ended up working in her favour, and as he descends into a deep depression, Nigella's star continues to rise.
