The British police are looking into a marital dispute between celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and her millionaire art collector husband, Charles Saatchi.A buzz was caused when pictures of his physical abuse started circulating the internet. The couple was eating outdoors at a seafood restaurant Scott's when they began engaging in a heated row, report The Straits Times Communities.According to the Daily Mail, a witness said that "it was utterly shocking to watch. I have no doubt she was scared. It was horrific, really. She was very tearful and was constantly dabbing her eyes. Nigella was very, very upset. She had a real look of fear on her face. She appeared to be a woman who loves him but was clearly unable to stop him being abusive, frightening and disrespectful to her."He reportedly attempted to strangle her four times. Miss Lawson tried to reconciliate with her husband afterwards by kissing him on the cheek. Eyewitnesses said that Mr Saatchi then stormed off from the table with his wife following him, wiping away tears.Lawson once admitted her marital problems with Saatchi in the past. "I'll go quiet when he explodes, and then I am a nest of horrible festeringness," she said.
