Some serious claims are being made against Nigella Lawson.
Two former kitchen assistants who used to work for the celebrity chef have alleged that Lawson used cocaine, cannabis and prescription pills "daily" for more than a decade," The Telegraph reports.
The accusations made by Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo came during a pre-trial hearing in London on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The sisters have been charged with defrauding Lawson and ex-husband Charles Saatchi out of more than 300,000 pounds ($484,600) while employed by them.
However, as part of their defense, the Grillo sisters claim Lawson authorized them to freely use Saatchi's company credit card in exchange for their silence regarding her alleged drug use.
