Divorcing: Nigella Lawson, 53, and Charles Saatchi, 70, just weeks after the millionaire art collector was photographed grabbing his celebrity-chef wife by the neck in a London restaurant. Amid the fallout from the original incident, Saatchi made a point of announcing that he planned to divorce her — but seems like she managed to file the papers first, reports the Guardian. In a brief 70-second hearing Wednesday, a judge allowed them to take the first legal step towards divorce, reports AP; they can make it official in six weeks. Married a decade, each has children by previous marriages, none together.
