Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi have declared that neither of them will make a financial claim against the other in their 'undefended' divorce proceedings.
The pair split after a photograph surfaced of Saatchi holding his wife by her throat. He later accepted a caution for assault.
A statement on behalf of Lawson (53) and Saatchi (70) said: "Fiona Shackleton is acting for Nigella Lawson to ensure a swift and amicable resolution. A divorce will proceed on the undefended basis, the decree nisi will be pronounced on July 31, and neither party will be making financial claims against the other.
"Charles Saatchi has not consulted lawyers and has represented himself throughout. Both parties would appreciate privacy for themselves and their children."
