Court Documents Say Nigella Lawson Used Cocaine, Pot Daily For Years

So-called "guilty secret"

|

Famed food writer and TV chef Nigella Lawson isn't just into pots and pans — she's also into pot and coke, according to blockbuster evidence made public by a British judge Tuesday.

The self-proclaimed "domestic goddess" secretly used so many drugs that her millionaire art-dealer ex-hubby, Charles Saatchi, derisively dubbed her "Higella" after finding out — and may have notoriously choked her in public because of it, published reports said.

Lawson, 53, allegedly used cocaine, marijuana and illegal prescription pills "daily" for more than a decade behind Saatchi's back.
