AIBU to think that The Saatchi Person is being just nasty now?

HE says that Nigella and her daughter were both off their heads on drugs and in doing so, let the PA's run rings and spend money fraudulently. There is a case going on, so not sure if this will get drop kicked, but the man seems to know no depth to his nasty.
He'll be punching old ladies next.
Could there be any truth to it all? Did wonder on occasion why N's eyes looked quite as erm...wide awake as they did.
He is a vucker isn't he?

will ye look at that. I made the linky do the pinky.

Its a way of continuing his abuse of her even though they are now divorced. He is trying to blame the PAs actions on his ex wife.

scarletforya Argentina Tue 26-Nov-13 21:39:16

He is such a sore loser. Ugh.

EasterHoliday Tue 26-Nov-13 21:43:33

the alternative way of looking at it is that he has been incredibly dignified in the face of her refusal to publicly support him when he was looking up her nose for coke. Looking back at those images, I do really think his version of events is plausible.
She does however have remarkable skin for someone who is supposedly a decade-long addict.

ForalltheSaints Tue 26-Nov-13 21:44:55

I doubt his version of events. Let's see what the jury thinks after all the evidence is given.

lolaisafuckertoo Tue 26-Nov-13 21:46:48

A friend of mine has quite rightly pointed at that his advertising agency was hardly a bastion of clean living. The Saatchi Christmas party was the stuff of legend even if it was stuffed by braying media types, many must be having a little chuckle to themselves.
Totally agree that this is frustration at her total refusal to be goaded by him after the whole business at the resteraunt.
HE really is an awful man

Easterholiday - do you reckon all the women with black eyes really did walk in to doors as well then hmm

I don't agree with the 'dignified' interpretation at all. Saatchi is an abusive man who accepted a caution from the police after photographs were taken of his hands round his wife's throat. She divorced him and he has waged a war of attrition against her ever since these events emerged.

I think Easter's post was tongue-in-cheek.

I hope it was!

He was always going to play dirty.
He will want the control.

I am inclined to believe the Nigella drug taking bit I think. Even he wouldnt make that up I dont think. If he was blatantly lying, he would get found out I would have thought.
With something this major, it just about has to be true I would have thought.

Darkesteyes Tue 26-Nov-13 22:12:57

Nigella is 53 but looks 37 IF this is true (which i highly doubt) many who partake will want to know the secret of how she acheives this.

Isn't that ^^ almost as bad? confused

You've started a thread to say how nasty he is, but then you're trying to get strangers who don't even know her, to speculate?

SaucyJack Tue 26-Nov-13 22:16:52

I don't think he's done anything wrong on this one.

He made the comments about Nigella's drug use in a private e-mail to Nigella so it's very probably true.

He didn't ring the news desk at the Fail accusing her of being a coke head.

phantomnamechanger Tue 26-Nov-13 22:21:02

I think he is angry with her for not putting up with his abuse and is out to muddy her name like his has been.

I just can't believe that someone who always looks so glam and gorgeous, and 15 years younger than her age, could be an addict.

IndiansInTheFuckerLobby Tue 26-Nov-13 22:23:40

The fact is an unbelievable amount of these television folk are on drugs of some kind. A friend who works in the industry has mentioned all types involvement in it. Whatever the drug use, the domestic violence and manipulation of this man must never be excused!

Mymumsfurcoat Tue 26-Nov-13 22:24:15

Rich people falling out. I don't care.

tudorqueen Tue 26-Nov-13 22:32:41

I see drug addicts most days and I sure as hell have never seen one looking as good as she does!

He ran a successful advertising agency - he knows every trick in the book about marketing and he's marketing himself as the concerned husband.

He's an arsehole.

lolaisafuckertoo Tue 26-Nov-13 22:36:01

Worra that was a teensy joke. sorry if it sounded otherwise. Didn't ask anyone to speculate.

spindlyspindler Tue 26-Nov-13 22:36:31

I love the implication in the press coverage that if she is a cocaine user it would in some way justify him grabbing her by the throat and making her cry in public.

lolaisafuckertoo Tue 26-Nov-13 22:37:37

mymums I think this is more than rich people falling out. I think it is important to highlight the kind of controlling men that will use any tactic to hand to undermine someone who they think has got above themselves. Because she is rich, she somehow is less deserving or any compassion?

HumpdayPlus Tue 26-Nov-13 22:41:59

As opposed to when he was just being nice and holding her by the throat?

SeaSickSal Tue 26-Nov-13 22:42:27

Um, are people incapable of reading the link?

These allegations have been made by the defence barristers of the Grillo sisters, not by Saatchi. Presumably they have this email as it was uncovered during the investigation. He sent it to her privately.

So much as the man is a knob on this occasion it seems this is not his fault.

NadiaWadia Tue 26-Nov-13 22:46:26

She had an apparently loving and normal marriage to John Diamond, the father of her children, who seemed to be a good man, and who tragically died of cancer. It is very sad both for her and her children that she should then end up marrying this nasty piece of work.
