Why do I get the funny feeling Saatchi wont be smiling all the way to the bank at the end of this smack down?
NIGELLA Lawson has upped the stakes in her split with Charles Saatchi — by consulting the top divorce lawyer who acted for Paul McCartney.
Mum-of-two Nigella, 53, began speaking to her shortly after learning art tycoon Saatchi, 70, had announced their divorce in a Sunday newspaper, according to pals.
A source said: “Nigella never wanted it to come to this — but Fiona has been a rock of support and she is glad to have her on her side.
“Nigella is soft so she needs someone strong representing her — and they don’t come any tougher than Fiona.
“Charles must be quaking in his boots.”
Shackleton, 57, is famed for combining a charming exterior with a shrewd and no-nonsense courtroom style.
In 2008, she argued Macca’s ex was only entitled to a tiny fraction of the £125million she was seeking.
The judge awarded Mills £24.3million — prompting the enraged model to stand up and throw water over the lawyer’s head.
Shackleton emerged from the court with her famously bouffant blonde hairdo wet and slicked back.
Lawson and Saatchi are worth £130million — with the chef’s TV success accounting for a large slice of that thanks to sales of her recipe books and cookware range. They own a £12million pad in Chelsea.
