British art collector Charles Saatchi and his celebrity chef wife, Nigella Lawson, said Monday they would not make any financial claims against each other to ensure a swift divorce.

Saatchi, 70, was cautioned by police last month for assaulting his 53-year-old wife, after photos emerged showing him grabbing her neck at a London restaurant.

The pair, both millionaires in their own right, said in a joint statement that the first stage of the divorce would go through on July 31.
