(Newser) – The latest crazy allegation to come out of the trial of Nigella Lawson's ex-assistants: One of them implied while testifying yesterday that the celebrity chef let her kids smoke marijuana. Elisabetta Grillo told the court that Lawson was OK with cigarettes being purchased for her underage children; when a prosecutor asked, "What on earth do you think you were doing buying cigarettes for underage children?" Grillo responded, "Well, if Nigella Lawson let them smoke weed..." before the judge cut her off, E! reports.
