The TV chef has been seen without her wedding ring after the argument with her husband several days ago
Nigella Lawson has been spotted out and about without her wedding ring for the first time since a row with her husband Charles Saatchi several days ago.
The TV chef left the marital home she owned with the former advertising mogul on Sunday and had not been seen again until yesterday, when eyewitnesses saw her close to the rented Mayfair property she has been staying in since the argument.
According to reports, Nigella was seen without her gold wedding ring on her finger as she walked to a local restaurant for breakfast yesterday morning and then sat outside the eatery to make a telephone call.
Nigella’s decision to remove her wedding band comes despite her husband’s claims that she had only moved out of their home because of the growing number of paparazzi photographers outside the front.
The eyewitness reports come just two days after her millionaire art collector husband accepted a police caution for the now infamous row where he grabbed his wife by the throat whilst they sat outside Scott’s restaurant in London.
After releasing a statement earlier this week in the London Evening Standard newspaper calling the incident a ‘playful tiff’, Saatchi has now issued another in the same paper stating his reasons for accepting the police caution for assaulting his wife.
He says: ‘Although Nigella made no complaint I volunteered to go to Charing Cross station and take a police caution after a discussion with my lawyer because I thought it was better than the alternative of this hanging over all of us for months.’
So far, Nigella has refused to comment on the incident. Pictures of the argument were originally published at the weekend in the Sunday People newspaper, where Nigella left the scene in tears after a row about their children. The couple have been married for ten years.
