Trinny Woodall addresses argument with Charles Saatchi, which left her crying at same restaurant art mogul grabbed Nigella Lawson by the throat

Saatchi received a police caution when he was seen in an abusive row with his then-wife in June 2013

Trinny Woodall has addressed the public row she had with Charles Saatchi, during which she was photographed crying at the same restaurant he now infamously grabbed ex-wife Nigella Lawson by the throat.

A worried fan on Instagram asked the former What Not To Wear presenter: “What happened at Scott’s? Why were you crying?”

She quickly replied, posting: “Storm in a B cup, very happy.”

Her response to the incident was a stark contrast to her partner Charles Saatchi’s.

When approached by The Mirror for comment about the distressing images, he apparently told a reporter: “Why not send a photographer to Scott’s tomorrow lunchtime and I’ll give Trinny a good throttling in time for your deadline?”

He has thus far declined to offer any further statement on the incident.

 

But it seems he has learned somewhat of a lesson about occasionally choosing a different restaurant to dine at. The art mogul was pictured eschewing Scott’s in Mayfair yesterday for a local Italian eatery instead, where he ate alone.

As news of the distressing images broke on Sunday, the pair headed back to Scott’s to put on a show of public affection in the very same spot they had been pictured in the midst of a heated exchange just days before.

Woodall, 50, was seen leaping out of her chair to confront the 70-year-old art collector. As the argument escalated, she was photographed wiping tears from underneath her sunglasses.

At the end of the meal, Saatchi got up left the table by himself.

“He walked off in a huff and left Trinny on her own,” The Mirror quoted one onlooker as saying.

“Her hair appeared dishevelled and her eyes were red from crying. When she managed to compose herself, she walked up to him, but he ignored her.”

The couple eventually left the restaurant in a taxi together.

The row painted a familiar picture to that of Saatchi’s argument with Nigella Lawson in June 2013, when he was photographed tweaking the chef’s nose and grabbing her by the throat.

The dispute ultimately led to the end of the couple’s 10-year marriage. She filed for divorce after Saatchi accepted a police caution for the incident, which he initially dismissed as a “playful tiff”.
