Nigella Lawson on Witness Stand: Ex-Husband Out to Destroy Me

Originally posted 12/04/2013 08:45AM

"He said that if I didn't go back to him and clear his name he would destroy me," Nigella told Isleworth Crown Court in West London.

Lawson, 53, struggled to maintain her composure on the witness stand, noting she was reluctant to testify in a case where two former assistants have been charged with spending more than a million dollars on luxury goods on her husband's credit card, which they'd had access to for household purchases.

Three traumatized women have been rescued from a London home after one called a charity to say she'd been held against her will for more than three decades, British police said Thursday.

Metropolitan Police said a 67-year-old man and a 67-year-old woman were arrested on Thursday at a home in south London as part of an investigation into slavery and domestic servitude.

The investigation comes after a charity contacted police in October to report that a woman had phoned to say she'd been held unwillingly for more than 30 years.

The catalyst for the call was a television documentary on forced marriages, according to police.
