Nigella Lawson Admits Drug Use But….
Nigella Lawson in court has admitted taking illicit drugs but really if the amount she has taken during her life is true probably would not have seen Bourdain get through a weekend in his drug taking prime.
Nigella told the court:
The TV chef said she snorted cocaine six times with her late husband John Diamond after he found out that he had terminal cancer.
She then took the drug again in July 2010 when she was what she described as ‘subjected to intimate terrorism’ by Charles Saatchi.
The 53-year-old mother-of-two also admitted smoking cannabis during the final year of her marriage to the millionaire art dealer without his knowledge – although her daughter Phoebe did know.
Miss Lawson said: ‘I have never been a drug addict. I’ve never been a habitual user. There are two times in my life when I have used cocaine.’
She also talked about what happened that day when Charles Saatchi, who described as brilliant but brutal assaulted her:
She said her husband ‘told everyone’ he was taking cocaine out of her nose at the time the photograph was taken.
But she claimed the incident was actually sparked when she commented on a person walking by with a baby.
‘I said “I’m so looking forward to having grandchildren”,’ Miss Lawson told the court.
‘He grabbed me by the throat and said “I’m the only person you should be concerned with”.’
