Nigella Lawson Net Worth
Nigella Lawson Net Worth: Nigella Lawson is an English journalist and broadcaster who has a net worth of $20 million. Born in 1960 in London, England, Nigella Lawson studied at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, and started reviewing books and restaurants before landing the role of deputy literary editor of "The Sunday Times". Soon after, Lawson began working as a freelance journalist before releasing her debut cookbook, "How to Eat". It quickly became a best-seller with more than 300,000 copies sold. Her follow-up, 2000's "How to be a Domestic Goddess", was also successful and earned Author of the Year honors at the British Book Awards. A year earlier, Lawson landed her cooking show, "Nigella Bites", and published an additional cookbook under the same name. Her 2005 chat show, "Nigella", was unsuccessful, though she had better luck hosting "Nigella Feasts" on the Food Network and "Nigella Express" on BBC Two. Lawson developed her own line of cookware. In 2013, Lawson's personal assistants were put on trial for allegedly fraudulently using her then-husband's credit cards. The assistants claimed they were permitted to use the cards as long as they remained quiet about Lawson's drug use. She later copped to use marijuana and cocaine, and the assistants were acquitted of the charges. Lawson and her husband, Charles Saatchi, divorced the same year. She has two children from her previous marriage to John Diamond, which ended with his death in 2001.
