The evidence from Saatchi, which was delivered during the trial of the couple’s assistants Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, contradicts an email he sent claiming she was “off her head” on drugs.
Lawson is a judge on ABC’s cooking show “The Taste,” and the allegations could damage her TV career.
Saatchi told the court, “I have never, never seen any evidence of Nigella taking any drug whatsoever.”
The defense had produced his email as part of its case.
Saatchi said, “I’m utterly bereft that this private email to Nigella has come back to haunt us both.”
When asked if he believed allegations that Lawson was a habitual cocaine user, Saatchi said: “I do not know.”
