So much for a drawn-out celebrity divorce.
Chef Nigella Lawson and billionaire Charles Saatchi have officially split after a 70-second divorce hearing in London Wednesday, The Guardian reports.
Their divorce comes seven weeks after photographs were published that showed Saatchi, 70, grabbing Lawson, 53, by the throat during an argument at a London restaurant. Saatchi called the altercation a "playful tiff", but later admitted to assaulting his wife. Lawson filed for divorce citing "unreasonable behavior" on the part of Saatchi, according to The Guardian.
The couple, who were married for 10 years, have reportedly come to a private financial settlement. Neither of them nor their lawyers were present at Wednesday's hearing, according to The Guardian.
