Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi’s divorce will be finalised by July 31st, just weeks after their public row in which Saatchi grabbed his wife by the throat at a London restaurant.

The couple have chosen a “swift and amicable” divorce, releasing a statement saying that neither will contest the divorce and “neither party will be making any financial claims against the other.”

Lawson is worth around $15 million, while Saatchi is estimated at being worth $150 million.

Last week, the art collector announced that he was filing for divorce because Lawson didn’t publicly defend him after the choking incident. Charming.

Lawson and Saatchi were married in September 2003.
