Two former assistants to celebrity cook Nigella Lawson and her former husband have been acquitted of fraud.
The Grillos were accused of using credit cards loaned to them by Lawson and her former husband, Charles Saatchi, for household expenses to spend 685,000 pounds on luxury clothes, accessories and rooms at high-end hotels.
The fraud trial has been overshadowed by revelations about the domestic life of Lawson and Saatchi, who divorced in July after he was photographed grabbing the celebrity cook's neck outside a London restaurant.
