The battle between exes Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi just keeps getting worse and worse. Charles claimed that he was taking cocaine out of Nigella’s nose when he was caught choking her in public back in June, but Nigella has fired back, saying she only took the drug a few times due to Charles’ ‘intimate terrorism’ in their tumultuous marriage!

Nigella Lawson, 53, made some shocking confessions during her Dec. 4 fraud trial against her former assistants. Responding to her ex-husband Charles Saatchi‘s allegations that she was addicted to cocaine, Nigella said she only used the drug a handful of times while she “felt subjected to intimate terrorism” in her marriage.

Nigella Lawson Says Cocaine Allegations Are A Witch Hunt

Nigella and Charles have been divorced since July, but Nigella is already back in court to testify at the trial of two former assistants accused of fraudulently using the couple’s credit cards. But the conversation quickly turned to Nigella’s alleged drug use, since Charles, a wealthy art dealer, blamed the shocking assault at Scott’s restaurant in London on cocaine. According to Nigella, this is all an attempt from Charles to protect his own name after their domestic dispute.

“[The drug allegations are] just another form of bullying,” Nigella said, regarding Charles’ assertion that she snorted cocaine daily.

However, Nigella did not deny taking drugs altogether. The popular celebrity chef said that she had taken cocaine “half a dozen times” with her first husband John Diamond while he was dying of cancer, then once again in July of 2010 when she “felt subjected to acts of intimate terrorism” by Saatchi.

Still, a handful of bad decisions doesn’t exactly make Nigella an addict. “I have never been a drug addict,” she said. “I have never been a habitual user… People who do [cocaine] are a lot thinner than I am.”

Nigella Lawson Admits To Smoking ‘The Odd Joint’

Though Nigella was steadfast in her argument that she is not a habitual drug user, she did admit to smoking marijuana to escape from her abusive marriage.

“I found it made an intolerable situation tolerable,” she said. “It’s a false friend and not a good idea. I found the answer was in changing the situation and trying to create a tolerable situation for me and my family. I have to say, since freeing myself from a brilliant but brutal man, I’m now totally cannabis, cocaine, any drug-free.”

Charles Saatchi must really think the world is full of idiots! Take another look at the picture of him with his wife. Yes, he really looked like he was taking cocaine from her with his hands around her throat. She is well rid of this nut.
