British authorities have begun an investigation after a newspaper published photos of celebrity chef Nigella Lawson’s husband with his hands around her throat.

The images were first published in The Mirror’s Sunday paper, The Sunday People. The paper alleged Lawson was being attacked in public. Those images started a firestorm and widespread condemnation throughout the United Kingdom.

 

70-year-old Saatchi married 53-year-old Lawson in 2003. He told the London Evening Standard that the pictures, quote, “are horrific but give a far more drastic and violent impression of what took place.”

 

"...and I held Nigella's neck repeatedly while attempting to emphasis my point. There was no grip, it was a playful tiff." (Via BBC)
 

Lawson has not commented on the incident or the pictures, but domestic violence experts aren’t buying her husband’s version of the events.

 

"Domestic violence is rarely a one-off incident. Abusers tend to minimise their behaviour. They may try blaming it on things like alcohol and stress and say it is just a marital tiff." (Via Sky News)

 

London police are investigating to establish the facts to determine whether a formal investigation is necessary. They have not received any criminal complaints and no arrests have been made.
