London: Nigella Lawson's husband, Charles Saatchi has revealed that he decided to divorce the celebrity chef because she refused to defend him over the photos, which show him grabbing her throat.
Former advertising boss Saatchi is believed to have blame Lawson's PR team for demanding an apology over the pictures, rather than allowing her to say in public what she told police that he has never hit her, the Mirror reported.
He further said that his wife had disappointed him in the last one-year and her silence after the recent allegations have hurt him.
Saatchi insisted that he never abused her in any way and is against any sort of violence on women.
The multi-millionaire also claimed that his wife had been just as violent to him during their time together.
He said that the incident that was photographed in the restaurant could equally have been Lawson grasping his neck as she had done in the past.
