Nigella Lawson, Drug Addict?

New allegations from heated divorce


As Nigella Lawson's divorce starts to play out before the courts, some new allegations have come to light. Her two personal assistants—who she has previously thanked in her books—say that she is a daily habitual drug user and that she bribed them to stay quiet with the use of her soon-to-be-ex-husband's personal credit card to the tune of 300,000 pounds over the last 10 years. 

Her husband (who you will recall was caught physically assaulting her on camera), says he belives the claims are all true. I have no idea what to think, but I am finding it hard to believe that she is a habitual cocaine user. But that might be just because my love of her shows over the years is clouding me. 

I've seen brutal divorces before, and I feel like her husband is probably doing everything in his power to destroy her reputation. Because he said he would. Because he's a bully. 

This divorce is going to be terrible and I think Nigella's name may be destroyed, but I think that's exactly what her husband wants to do to her — destroy her. 

What do you think of this recent allegation against Nigella Lawson?
