Just a few weeks after celebrity chef Nigella Lawson was photographed being choked by her husband and multimillionaire art collector Charles Saatchi, the star is moving out of her London home.

Saatchi, 70, claims the incident photographed by paparazzi was just a "playful tiff." But Lawson thankfully isn't taking it as such.

Says the New York Post:

A representative for Lawson, 51, confirmed that the kitchen maven and her children left the family's home June 16, though it remains unclear whether the move is permanent. Suggesting this may be the end of her nearly 10-year marriage to Saatchi, 70, the "How to be a Domestic Goddess" author has been seen recently without her wedding ring.

The NYP ran several photos of moving trucks and boxes marked with Lawson's name, as well as boxes of childrens' toys and a shot of the star without her wedding ring on.

The Braiser suggests that she is moving with her children to Los Angeles to begin taping the second season of "The Taste."

Smart move. Some of her favorite eats are here anyways. And that guy was a total tool bag.
