Saatchi accepted a formal citation as a result of the incident, admitting that he did, indeed, assault his wife.

Although Lawson not present in court yesterday, the ex-Food Network star cited "unreasonable behavior" as grounds for the couple's official split.

Legal documents revealed that both sides believe the marriage is irretrievably broken and, according to British law, a "decree absolute" will be issued in about six weeks, at which point their marriage will be truly, completely, 100% be over.

Which ought to be good news for Lawson. She deserves better.
