Posted Sunday July 7, 2013 10:30 AM GMT

Just three weeks after shocking photos of Nigella Lawson being grabbed by the neck by her husband were revealed, the couple are filing for divorce.

In a report for the Mail on Sunday, the cooks estranged hubby, Charles Saatchi, told the paper “I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced.”

After the photos of the art dealer grabbing his wife by the throat at a London restaurant came to light, the 70-year-old was questioned by police for five hours and was issued a citation.

Married for ten years to the popular television sensation, Mr. Saatchi continued, "I feel that I have clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way."

No comment has been made by Ms. Lawson's representatives at this time.
