From borderline abusive tabloid pictures to divorce in less than seven weeks: Nigella Lawson is free of former husband Charles Saatchi, who announced his divorce plans shortly after the tabloid incident. The High Court granted the divorce in a hearing that lasted less than 60 seconds, the BBC reports, although the couple still has to wait for something called a "decree absolute" to officially end the marriage; those are typically issued after an additional six weeks and a day. Saatchi, 70, and Lawson, 53, had been married 10 years. The Guardian (which has today's hearing at an interminable 70 seconds) says Lawson was the one who actually filed for divorce. She cited Saatchi's "continuing unreasonable behavior" as the reason, the Daily Mail reports. (Read more Nigella Lawson stories.)
