Lawson's exit from the house comes less than two weeks after the TV chef's hubby was pictured grabbing her by the throat, reported a website.
Since then the 53-year-old has been seen without her wedding ring. Ad mogul Saatchi, 70, accepted a police caution for assault after the attack on her in a restaurant. "It really does seem the end," a friend of the couple said. Lawson, who has two children from her marriage to journalist John Diamond, who died in 2001, is off to the US soon to film a series as a judge in reality TV cooking show 'The Taste'.
Saatchi could be entitled to much of her estimated 20 million pounds fortune because she earned most during their ten-year marriage.
